Really sorry to hear of Joe's passing. He was a help in modeling, to me, when I needed it. He'll be missed.

That is very sad news. I have visited his site and always enjoyed its useful content.
http://www.towboatjoe.com/

In the middle of this page http://www.towboatjoe.com/const1.htm are details for a fire monitor.
Information I needed for my Kalakala - an example of how (without ever knowing) he must have
helped very many people.

RIP Joe

That is very sad news, he was always happy to help and was a mine of information on tugs/towboats.

RIP Joe

I must add my sadness at Towboat passing away.  We exchanged several emails and he was always most encouraging, what a legacy of information he leaves behind on his web site, I do hope it gets preserved in some way.

It is sad to lose another Mayhem member, it is getting far too frequent lately, sad to say. When it happens there is a sense of loss of a connection to the past & a void not filled easily. RIP Tugboat. Mick B.
