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 Queen

Seaspan Queen - 2012-04-26

Seaspan Queen - the Queen is one of Seaspan's older vessels, but still one of the most pleasing to the eye. Another of the Seaspan fleet that is a regular visitor to the local mill. Here she is pictured off Harwood Island, in front of the mill harbour, below in front of Algerine Passage in some "heavy water", and bottom, off Texada Island.
