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 Spray

Storm Spray - 2012-06-06

Ledcor`s Storm Spray - for just a few weeks during the summer of 2012 Ledcor Group provided the tugs that towed the City Transfer barge between Powell River and Richmond. Storm Spray was one of three Ledcor tugs I saw over the space of about 4 weeks, and I haven`t seen Ledcor blue here since. Ledcor is fairly new to tugging in BC - they purchased 6 vessels, all renamed to start with "Storm". The Storm Spray is the ex Evco Spray.

Below is a shot of the south entrance to the Mill's harbour, as she exits the harbour, passing the log pond.

Length: 19.29m Breadth: 6.22m Draft: 2.99m Power: 760 BHP Year Built: 1967
