Tugboats, the semi's of the ocean. They pass Powell River pulling logbooms, construction barges, scows of hogfuel and chips for the local paper mill, train barges, barges loaded with
semi-trailers and chemical tankers and more. And I take their pictures as they pass.

Here you will find some of the photos I have taken of those tugboats as they pull their tows up and down Malaspina Strait and the surrounding waters. Big ones and little ones, good looking tugs and some not so.
I like them all, and if you like tugs - including tugs converted to other uses - I invite you to have a look.

BASH - 2012-12-05

BASH - is what it says on the front of the added-on wheelhouse on top, the only markings on her. No record at Transport Canada. and an internet search was fruitless. She was on the job at the Westview Ferry terminal, doing preliminary work for an upgrade to the docking facilities scheduled for March, 2014. Anyone knowing anything about her, feel free to comment.
