    hello.. i just design an Integrated Tug Barge for shallow draft
    i used Rope Connection in my notch between Tug and Barge
    i know it's kind of old design to use rope connection but i think operation in shallow draft water (river) with calm water is good enough for this ship with that connection

    now my question is, is possible that with i use Rope Connection there are some "Losing Power" ? ..effect from that Rope Connection... if there possible to solve that "losing power" with increase Tug Boat's Horse Power ?
    Thank you
