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.

F.W. Wright - part of the Mercury Launch and Tug fleet, she was seen here often when Mercury did the City Transfer barge run, but since they no longer do that run the shots below are the first I've seen her here in a year. She was pulling a North Arm Transport barge, loaded with sand, into the Mill harbour.

 Length: 12.59m Breath: 5.49m Draft: .55m Power: 880 BHP Year Built: 1987
