TUG WHEELHOUSE DESIGN

Some points are discussed regarding the author's philosophy on dedicated berthing tug wheelhouse design. A fundamental tenet of that philosophy is that the wheelhouse should be big enough to accommodate the essential equipment needed to control a tug, but small enough to ensure that visibility is not impaired by the structure itself, an impairment that frequently seems to be the case on many existing modern tugs.
