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.

The Jervis King - in the most recent photos she was heading south and left her boom unattended while she came in to the South Harbour for fuel and to swap out a deckhand. Below those she was working with Fraser River Pile Driving on the BC Ferries Westview slip project, and she is shown nosed up against a Fraser River barge. She was built for Rivtow and worked for them as the Rivtow Regent. Now she belongs to Thunder Bay Tugs, a local outfit which works out of Saltery Bay.
