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.

Jervis Titan

Jervis Titan - 2015-06-06


Jervis Titan - she is, I believe, the latest addition to the fleet of small tugs operated by Thunder Bay Tugs, out of Saltery Bay. She was built by BC Marine Shipbuilders for Island Tug and Barge as the Island Rustler in 1967. The most recent shots shows her hauling a barge of logging equipment south, having just rounded Grief Point.

Length: 13.14m Breadth: 5.03m Draft: 2.96m Power: 463 BHP Year Built: 1967
