Quick question for the Tygum folks,
Where did Piercey procure the hull for the jumbo Heung Long tug? I've looked around and can't find anything like it in that size range. Or is the hull a DiY FRP jobbie?

I certainly am, modern style and large enough to fit the thrusters I'm producing as per my build thread:
The larger of the two Heung Long style tugs fits the bill, those that I believe are owned by "Piercey".
Dug further back and answered my own question. Scratch-built, but his own design or did he track down some decent plans?
