tug boats are "busy" boats, I used to skipper full size tugs and found the experience both challenging and rewarding.
I never sail my Nangee with out two barges attached somewhere, be it ahead astern or alongside. I must get around to converting it to  twin screw, at the moment it is single steerable Kort nozzle with 70mm prop, loads of power and very manoevreable even going astern.

I agree with the fact that tugs are usually not the dominant craft at shows (at least static displays).

Around here....warships seem to be the dominant presence....but I only build tugs...so I'm a tad prejudice :-X
