I had a cloaked ship, ID # 4 try to tow an enemy ship to a kill point. Waypoint was set about 180ly away, Warp 9, hundreds of fuel on board. Host ran and I got message that my tractor beam was overpowered, by an enemy ship ID # 19.
How is that possible? Even if he did everything right to break my tow - so did I and my ship ID 4 beats his ID 19. Any ideas??

Was the ship you were trying to two ID#19? If so, then he met all four requirements to prevent the towlock.

Except for ships towing with Gravitonic Accelerators all tow locks can be broken, just got to have warp speed equal to or greater then tower and set way point more then one turn and 26Kt of fuel minimum.
Ship ID only comes into play if two ships trying to tow each other or another ship.
