Tug Boat: Shelley Foss, Mr Darby, etc..

Looking for a nice Tug, Shelley Foss, Mr Darby or other possibilities. 36 - 46" range.
I hope to have found one in California. But, still interested in what may be out there. The one pending (sale/purchase) is not posted here and maybe someone can be interested in one of these. Thanks and keep sending what you have in my size range.

Here you go. 44" and ready for drive line and radio. It looks like it is patterned after a Preston tug.

That one is not mine on EB. But I do like the look. I modified a 36" Dumas Shelley down to 30" and put a Preston pilot hs on it. Also did the same on a Lord Nelson and 24" Shelley. This one on EB is just too big for me at my age.

WOW, $525.00 for a boat with no electronics or drive train? I'm selling my boats way to cheap.
