You could scout manufaturers' web sites.


For example here: http://www.norsafe.com/Products/Freefall-systems1/


Click on each model on the left column and then "Read more" under the drawing. There are GA drawings.


For example: http://www.norsafe.com/Global/Products/Freefall/GES%2025%20MKll/Documentation/HD-25-G-03_6%20%20-%20GA%20with%20ZHP4.pdf

Hi John,
We always have a Tug Towing Competition at our Regattas as part of a Yearly Competition for a Cup. We also Have one for Springer Barge Push. Both are run just round a short Course.
Neither have special Tuggy Rules and Very large Tugs would not get through some gates, may be able to put on here a copy of courses, will have a go.
