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 Wave - 2012-06-13

Storm Wave - another of the Ledcor tugs that I saw pulling the City Transfer barge for a few short weeks in the summer of 2012. They may all be older boats, but they look spiffy in Ledcor colours. Here the Wave is captured entering the Mill harbour.

Length: 18.04m Breadth: 7.13m Draft: 2.77m Power: 960 BHP Year Built: 1977
