Looks like a narrow boat with a very long well deck to me

But then I could never be considered an expert on narrowboats

I do my thing and you do your thing.
I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,
And you are not in this world to live up to mine.
You are you, and I am I,
and if by chance we find each other, it's beautiful.
If not, it can't be helped

I think you're being a bit picky and not using your sale blurb imagination

Apart from no front deck, it's got port holes, a vintage Nanni diesel ;)

What more do you want in a tug style boat..........

............ apart from something that looks remotely like one :lol:

Ally!


if you are ever unsure about something then you should always go to that wonderful resourse Wikki:

Tugboat

Of course the term "style" added to the end adds a whole new perspective to the argument!

If my opinion was correct, true and valid. We would all share the same opinion. Then it wouldn't be an opinion.

What do they mean by 'character' interior? Is it what most of us would probably think of as 'comedy' interior? :lol:

As a matter of curiosity, mine, does this conform to your understanding of a tug?

From what I can see of it I would say it was a fair description! I'd class my own as a tug style too...though she has a slightly different look to Sandbach.

I don't think that the well deck is as long as Theodora's. Nice boat though once it's got rid of some of the shininess.

Thanks Andy ... I think!
I posted my original query because although I held no strong views for or against a particular design being a 'tug' I had realised that Sandbach is called a tug by it's current owner, and used for towing duties.
After saying Sandbach is a tug you now you tell me (indirectly) that a similar hull, but 11ft shorter, and only half the cabin space is also a tug.

It does rather suggest that if someone wants to call a boat a tug, they can do, irrespective of the design!!

I'm not seriously disconcerted, just amused.
Perhaps it's a good thing money isn't burning a hole in my pocket :-)

Cheers.
