Ray, thanks for that. I wondered if you meant the Western Towboat tug, Western Mariner in Seattle. I sailed on her a lot including the maiden voyage.

update   ive got the side decks in place the  coamings for the superstructure glued in place   the after deck is on hold for a bit as im waiting on a part for one of the drive units

 the square hole in the fore deck is for a winch with the drive motor under it & then bolt it onto the deck
