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.

Ocean Warlock

Ocean Warlock - 2013-07-17

Mercury Launch and Tug's Ocean Warlock - any of the Mercury Tug fleet has been hard to spot in the last while, and this is only the second sighting of this tug. Here she is shown in the mill harbour, picking up a barge of scrap metal. In the last shot she had made her way over from Beale Cove on Texada island to fuel up at the South Harbour.

Length: 14.54m Breadth: 6.19m Draft: .34m Power: 1900 BHP Year Built: 1992
