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.

Rosario - 2010-12-28

Rosario - another tug that I spotted docked at the South Harbour, that I have yet to see on open water. She was the Rosario Straits when she was owned by Rivtow Straits, and the "Straits" could still be seen, painted over, on her bow in this 2010 picture. Now owned by Gisbourne Marine Services, of Surrey.

Length: 18.5m Breadth: 6.0m Draft: 2.53m Power: 600 BHP Year Built: 1962
