Rescue boats are a viable tool in our sailing tool kit. Tugs seem a nature choice and one of the more popular tugs our there is the Aquacraft Atlantic Tug sold
Tower Hobbies. With very little modifications it can handle a wide range of duties.
Crash is an authority on this vessel and his has been extensively modified - the mods were done over a period of time. It served has his primary rescue boat for many years.
I use my Motor Life Boat and if needed my Chris Craft has been called into duty to push a friends boat free from being caught in some weeds.
Whatever it is it has to have the power and control to do the job, not to mention the ability to rescue and stay afloat while attempting a rescue.

+1!!

Thanx for the recommendations! I look forward to following up!

EDIT: I really like that Chris Craft as it's reminiscent of the real ones that occur here locally as we have a local "Chris Craft guru" who reconditions them.

A beautiful boat!

Checked out the Atlantic tug. Many, many mod viddys and threads! Good stuff!

Thanks, Rick, ALWAYS like the credibility check... guys build houses their WHOLE life, they dont call them the house builder..

Kill 3-4 guys, you are known forever..not fair..

Felons are people too..we got mothers, fathers, kids..almost pay taxes, etc.

You guys are gonna have a club up there before ya know it....

Thanks for the kind comments on the latest video guys...it makes all the hours of editing worth it to know someone is getting some enjoyment watching it.

Here's another pic from the last one....
