Kim,

I wonder if a tug boat wouldn't have a strengthened bow for pushing batges or so?

What is going to be the ship's name? Corona? Okay, I go stand in the corner  Grin.

Cheers,
Volker

Since it is a paddle wheeler, it should be a pusher boat rather then a tug.  one thing to consider is that the stern of the barge can be notched to receive the bow of the pusher.

Morning.
Good point about the position of the barges the examples I have seen is that the barge is tied up next to the paddlewheel mother ship, personally, I think that this would be hard to control and progress would be very slow, Towing would also be hard as the ropes would get fouled in the paddlewheel so pushing is the best bet Volker you are right there needs to be something on the bow.
Lawton the crew members'
 names are Clyde, Clancy, and Mabel there is also a dog and maybe a cat now it is getting crowded .
Cheers

Hi
It is tiny in 1/35 scale.
10 1/4 inches or 260 mm long. This does not include the rudders.
5 1/2 inches or 135 mm wide.
6 1/4 inches or 155 mm heigh.
I will call it" Madel" with my late mother in mind she was born in 1916
