Nice looking tug!...

I notice you have 'flattened' out the underside of the hull at its deepest part and seem to have done the same at the stern.. (Naughty!!)..

How are you powering the prop in the tube?... I used a flexible cable drive in Proteus  ;) ..

Need to see some pics of the internals...  O0
