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.

Inlet Wrangler - one of the newer tugs on the coast the Inlet Wrangler was built in Campbell River for Gowlland Towing, also of Campbell River. Not a big tug, and those mufflers make her unmistakable on the water. Always seen heading south on the Strait with a logboom in tow.
