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.

Chieftain III - another Pacific Cachelot boat out of Campbell River. It seems every time I see her, she's in poor weather - the most recent 2 shots
saw her once again marking time off Westview, with a wind storm warning in effect.

Length: 16.61m Breadth: 6.16m Draft: 2.53m Power: 610 BHP Year Built: 1963
