    I do not believe you will find ANY books on modular or block construction of tugboats. Subject is too specialised.

    However, if you search the papers published by SNAME in the JOURNAL OF SHIP PRODUCTION (JSP) you will find some papers on;
    - advanced outfitting
    - modular construction
    - tug boat design for production
    - tug boat construction

    In some of these you will find information on the subject you need.

    I believe the JSP is the most likely source of the information which you need.

    Your university library should make the SNAME publications available to you.
