Tug Spotted on Hudson River

Hiking across the Bear Mountain bridge today.I spotted this tug pushing a giant barge.
Does anybody know where I can get plans for this boat.It was called the "Justine Mcallister"

Most likely you would have to try the original Marine Architect that designed the boat, and
have permission from original or current owners to gain access to the plans.

Or start from a model tug with a similar hull, and build up from there.
The boat had several different configurations for the pilot house, or perhaps just a
controllable lift at the pilot house.

The wheelhouse on the Justine is hydraulic and does raise and lower.

It would be neat to build.Would the hull be similar to other harbor tugs? I'm new to boats.
