|Glen Rover - 2012-01-23|
Glen Rover - I prefer to take my tugboat pictures when they're out on the Strait, but they don't always cooperate. This is the Glen Rover, moored in the Powell River South Harbour. She was built for the Canadian Navy during WWII in Owen Sound ON as the Glencove, one of the 16 Glen-class tugs commissioned during the war. Sold in 1946 and re-named Consol II, sold again in 1953 and renamed Glen Rover. And since 1986 a Stormaway Towing boat, though I understand she is for sale again.
Length: 23.13m Breadth: 6.13m Draft: 2.32m Power: 400 BHP Year Built: 1944
