Title: Towing exercises
Post by: rhavrane on June 18, 2018, 07:32:44 AM
June is an appropriate month to navigate and make exercises.
When a 20-kilo tug tows a Dutch barge weighing 25 kilos at 20PSI, it's a breeze for her : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzE0xs52Hs4 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QzE0xs52Hs4)
But what happens if the tug (electric) weighs less than 1 kilo with the same barge ? Answer here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gLqQCxXNy8 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gLqQCxXNy8)

She did her best! I think a smaller barge would have been a fairer load  :-)
