Hull for Midwest Liberty Tug or Patriot Fireboat


Looking for the hull for either of these boats since it's the same hull. I built the liberty with modifications which is top heavy and don't wish to loose the work. I'll be putting lights on this one which will add more weight because of the battery. As she is, she moves nicely through the water even if lower than Midwest might have wanted.

I'm going to rebuild the superstructure using Sintra for a lighter top side, and better refined than what was first built, so would like a "good" hull to put it on. (Picture attached.)

I thought DerKap here on RCG may have produced a fiberglass version in the past? I know I have seen one but it had a much higher free board as it was for some specific type of fishing vessel.

I checked out CS Fiberglass Hulls and He makes a number of fiberglass hulls. Very impressive.

Thanks Kcal.
