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.

Yucata Spirit

Yucata Spirit - 2015-03-29

Yucata Spirit - in the above shot she was waiting out the weather, having spent the previous 24 hours doing circles off the Powell River harbour. Another Pacific Cachalot boat, she has a chequered history - the ex Comox Argus, ex Weldwood Spirit and ex something else, as she is one of the few boats on the coast built and operated in England.

Length: 26.61m Breadth: 7.35m Draft: 2.93m Power: 1100 BHP Year Built: 1963
