    Firstly, you could just ask Egan for the file. And secondly, with the newly added maps Valve doesn't add the custom models to the files. This means if you want the model, you'll have to look towards the Watergate thread here and see where Egan got it.

    Watergate's boat is a fixed version of the trawler from the maritime theme pack, which can be found here(among the oceanic and woods theme packs).

    What's "fixed" about Watergate's version of the boat? Also it's a bit annoying that Valve doesn't buy the custom content any more :/

    Decompiling the map only gives you a VMF. To get the assets, you need to extract them from the map using GCFScape or something similar. But the boat itself is already in the BulletCrops pack or if not maybe this one

    Yup, if you want the boat, all you need is the asset from the appropriate pack, not the .vmf.

    For Watergate we found that the poles sticking out of the boat got in the way of gameplay so BANG edited the collision mesh to ignore those:

    Simple change, but it helps. - Edit, Thread

    Sweet. Will the fixed version be released here?

    Yeah I updated the Watergate files download to have all of the current official WG stuff - http://tf2maps.net/resources/watergate-content-pack.425/

    I haven't really tested to make sure everything's in there so maybe let me know if any errors appear. :^]

    No errors but there are definity missing props like the trawler and some roof textures for the skybox buildings.
