  1. Nice range of abilities. The zero length turning ability would be great in small crowded harbors.

    I wish I had tugs that nice when I was working on the water.
    Most of the tugs I worked on were based on designs not too different than those used in WWII.

    When you say it has a moving deck cabin are you referring to a cabin that can be raised up to improve visibility while on tow?
