Those are too cool!!

Would make great workboats for marinas.

If a guy could build one with a Z-drive....then that would be the answer.

A little inboard would work. Maybe small twin cylinder, and you would be able to sit on the motor box to drive.

Kinda like this one, I built a few years ago.

She was a real blast to drive.

Looks like once you get the tug bug there's no end to the lengths you'll go to.

Put a " moon pool " in the middle of it and mount the outboard in the hole ....

Any comment I make is the official view of all the voices in my head.

  Here's one of the design I saw at the Gravenhurst Antique boat show a couple of years ago.

I friend of mine has an outboard powered one of the Berkely tug's. It is a fun little harbor boat for messing about or tending crab and shrimp pots. I have the plans for the 14'3" Candu-EZ for a retirement project with the grand kids. I really like this aluminum version built in BC.
