Using a tug boat isn't exactly the easiest way to retrieve a boat, depending on just how you go about it. The good part is that it also provides additional 'play' time, it's fun, you can show off your 'ex-spurt-tease'... well, sort of (yeah, right). 'Jim' has it right, if it ~works~ it's the right way. That sort of limits the use of ducks, dogs, and geese, depending on the ducks dog and geese. If the fishing pole and ball work for you, good. If you wanna try it with a tug, fine. If you train the ducks and geese would you take pictures, please?

Like LtDoc says, if it works, it wins. My favoured way if out of range of the flung tennis ball is to fix a long line to the normal towing hitch of the tug and run the line out past the stricken vessel, and then part-circle it. When resonably sure that the line has snagged the sticken one, stop the rescue boat and GENTLY pull the pair of them in.
