    That means that there is little volume above the waterline. The working decks on a tugboat are very low to the water to keep the line pull as low as is reasonable.

    I read somewhere that well over half the new tugs are hybrid Diesel-Electric, and maybe +75% planned or on the boards tugs will be hybrids. A decade or two from now they may have around 90% of the market if I recall correctly.
