|Mr. Darby||The All New Mr. Darby Fiberglass Hull. This hull has the same dimensions as the original Dumas version, but the similarities end there. This magnificent hull is made with two layers of hand-laid-up (not choper gun applied) fiberglass. This construction method creates an extremely heavy duty hull that can easily support the 65lb ballasted weight of the model. Kort nozzles can be easily and securely screwed to the hull because of the seriously thick fiberglass. The hull also features built-in anchor wells, orientation lines for bow thruster installation, and dimples indicating drilling points for prop shafts, kort nozzles, rudders and support beams.|

The 136-foot Invader class boats are, pound for pound, some of the most awesome boats working and are used for everything from ultra-large ocean tows, to tanker escorts, to harbor ship assists.|

|San Pedro||San Pedro is a single screw harbor tug operated by Wilmington Transportation of Los Angeles/Long Beach, California. She was built in 1967 at which time she was the most powerful tug in the port of Los Angeles. In 1995, with increased competition from twin-screw and tractor type tugs, it became necessary to perform a major refit on her that included the addition of a 360 degree azumithing bow thruster, a kort nozzle, and three rudders. This transformed her into a "Combi-tug" and made her arguably the most maneuverable and useful tug in the harbor.|

|Deshutes||The Pacific Escort, and five other "tractor tugs" operated by Foss Maritime are known for their high maneuverability and quick response. This is accomplished by the use of Voith-Schneider cycloidal drive units, or "eggbeaters" mounted forward in the hull. These 3,000 to 4,000 horsepower tugs are highly prized by ship captain's during docking and undocking because of the flexibility that these special drive units allow. In fact, these boats are so maneuverable, that they drive as well when going astern as they do when going ahead.|
