Go ahead and start a thread about your type of boats that is what this forum was set up for. You know the members here can't get enough pics no matter what kind of R/C machine it is.

R/C tugboats certainly could be an interesting addition to a R/C construction scene. Especially with a R/C tugboat maneuvering a barge with a r/c excavator for seawall construction as an example.

Check out some of my barge loading videos.

I haven't started using the NyLint dragline to load sand into barges yet because the water level in the canal this year is too low for navigation due to issues on the south pool.

Lot's of power to pull myself and a 250 pound skiff around.
