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.

Viking Monarch

Viking Monarch - 2010-11-14

Viking Monarch - it's an older picture of the only time I've seen her, and the sign on her side still says Delta Tug and Barge, a previous owner. She was purchased by Ruskin Construction in 2013, who refitted her and moved her on to West Coast Tug and Barge. As of late 2013, she is the Westco Monarch.

Length: 13.96m Breadth: 6.4m Draft: 2.65m Power: 914 BHP Year Built: 1965
