Title: ATB or SDM tugs
Post by: Steve Mahoney on June 14, 2006, 11:26:31 PM
Does anyone know where I can source plans or drawings for a US style SDM tug (eg Seabulk's St Johns) or a modern ATB tug (eg SeaRiver's Everett/ Rienauer's Christian)? I've tried the owners and builders of both these boats but no reply.

I acquired a lot of detail photos of the Dorothy Ann and barge Pathfinder that I sat down and made plans of to build a model. Here's what the Dorothy Ann looks like.

Notice she has Z drives. I also did drawings with straight shafts. Contact me at towboatjoe@alltel.net if interested.
