Hello everyone, my first post.

I am interested in tugs for radio control modelling and would like to find out more about tugs in general. I am particularly interested in harbour tugs and Thames barge towing tugs. Can anybody recommend a website or book with good pictures and texts which describes the way they operate? DVD or video would be really useful also.

Thanks and best wishes
