Being towed is quite fun

Bonjour,
I have taken the benefit of a test to experiment by myself the power of a Stuart D10 in my tug JAN :

Very nice. You certainly have enough power. How long will she run for before you must re-fill her boiler?

Bonjour,

This tug is equipped with a Stuart D10 which has a coupled pump drawing water from the pond so her limit is the size of the (big) gas tank.

As the burner is a 300 g/h one, the autonomy is about one hour and the water level remains constant  :-))

Ans this tug is also able to push : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPPux5exRNE
