    Bidding a project that has almost no access on the water and was wondering about a small barge to take materials in and out? I really don't know anything other than reading your thread, I'm guessing they are probably spendy? How much could one barge like yours haul? How big does the 'tugboat' have to be too push it?

    With our small barge we haul the E50 and put about 12 ton of stone in the bin. With the smaller barge you don't need much to push it. A outboard 100hp does a good job. You will burn quite a bit of fuel but investment isn't bad compared to a push boat like ours.
