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.

Pacific Fury

Pacific Fury - 2014-05-22


Pacific Fury - a very common sight on Malaspina Strait, as she hauls logs south on very regular basis. And seeing her often means seeing her in good weather and bad, and anything in between. The ex Northland Fury, she is another member of the Pacific Cachalot fleet from Campbell River.

Length: 19.32m Breadth: 7.16m Draft: 4.05m Power: 1440 BHP Year Built: 1969
