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.

Lafarge Cement's Jose Narvaez - shown here moored at the Government Wharf at Van Anda, on Texada Island. She is named for the Spanish explorer who was the first European to sail Georgia Strait. If her profile looks familiar, it's because she is the sister to the Seaspan Champion.
