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.

Seaspan Cutlass - she is the same design as the Seaspan Cavalier and the Seaspan Corsair, all built in 1975. Almost always seen pulling a triple to the mill. At the date of the third photo she had just come out of a refit at Seaspan's Vancouver Shipyard, including replacement of both her Cummins engines.
