Hello Britcardoc1. . .I searched here on the Forum and also didn't find Xtan's post about
the Malabar in drydock. However, I did find this picture on the Internet.



Also, if you go here: https://www.google.com/search?q=tugboat,+Malabar&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiW5fSO3dnSAhUHjlQKHUcaDiwQ7AkIKA&biw=1447&bih=807#imgrc=igs2MeyBB3NWyM:

will find about 20 or so pictures of the Malabar. She went down about 50 miles from where
I live here on Puget Sound, Washington, in 1995, Straights of Georgia, British Columbia. . .
a shame for such a super nice tug.

Be sure you post photos about your tug build as you go along. Welcome Aboard Britcardoc1,

Great subject for a simple conversion from an Amsterdam.

Yes, I have an unbuilt Amsterdam a new friend let me have and I wanted to make the propulsion correct rather than simple screw and rudder. So prototype had fixed screw with moving Kort with one fixed rudder. Found one in England so I dont have to turn one. Really a project I am fired up about. Looking for old Pitman/Dumas 12v brushed motor unless someone has abetter suggestion. Read some about automotive accessory motors..  I have a full basement machine shop so anything is fair game. Thanks.

Keep us posted with your progress.
The naval tugs weren't too different from the Amsterdam. I think the widows at the front of the superstructure were filled in/covered on the Malabar.
