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.

Storm Breeze


Storm Breeze - another Ledcor tug that did the City Transfer barge run for a short span in summer 2012. Here she is exiting the south mouth of the mill harbour, against the backdrop of the old derelict ships, "the hulks", used as an artificial breakwater to protect the harbour. She is the ex Evco Breeze.

Length: 19.29m Breadth: 6.22m Draft: 2.99m Power: 760 BHP Year Built: 1964
