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.

West Coast Tug and Barge's Westco Rogue - I've noted her in local waters a handful of times. Below she had a Ruskin Construction barge in in her care while Ruskin was installing the new floats during the re-configuration of the North Harbour. She's based in Campbell River.
