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.

Hecate Straits

Hecate Straits - 2015-03-29

Hecate Straits - another Pacific Cachalot tug, she is the ex North Arm Furious. There are many good looking tugs on the water, but this is not one of them. And it seems I always see her in poor weather.

Length: 21.12m Breadth: 7.5m Draft: 3.47m Power: 1450 BHP Year Built: 1971
