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.

Grapple

Grapple - 2012-01-12

Grapple - she's not pretty, and she didn't take a great picture, but then she's almost as old as I am. Owned by Georgeson Tug of Galiano Island. On her way by with a small barge of construction equipment, she pulled into the harbour for fuel. And she's a wood boat.

Length: 10.52m Breadth: 3.72m Draft: 1.37m Power: 220 BHP Year Built: 1954
