I missed this thread though related to my [wiki]Towbar[/wiki] OXP. I think there is a possibility to take a ship after towed into a station and fixed for very heavy cost to help get rare hulls
in another way than checking all shipyards.

I like this kind of justification, usable to confirm a 90% fixing cost also.

I think to ships with playable versions only, which list is already gathered in [wiki]Gallery[/wiki] OXP.

It is possible with using Ship Storage Helper
OXP and something from Extended Shipyards
OXP but not so easy to finish it and there are big headaches with core changes and new things added by future OXPs so probably always need updates or will break.
The easy way is enough imho: sell the player ship and use the money for fixing the new ship.
Regarding dertien's post, if towing is required then:
-no problem with ships without escape pod,
-no autopilot needed,
-mass is limited to maximum 1.6 times more than your ship so players will not get a much larger ship easily,
-the sell price is near the suggestion and can be deducted from the new ship price to get the cost of fixing.
Much easier to store damaged hulls only than storing the current player ship, so can be possible to gather more hulls but if player decide to fix one then must sell the current ship first to avoid problems.
If I get requests to make the version described above then I can put it into my todo.
