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.

North Arm Wave

North Arm Wave - 2015-03-20

North Arm Wave - with the most recent shots she was heading south with her tow, the fuel barge North Arm Genesis, on a very rainy day. She dropped her barge, which was taken into the Catalyst Mill harbour by Seaspan's JRW, while she came to the City harbour and took a berth. With heavy rain and wind in the forecast it's a good bet she was waiting out the weather - 4 hours later she continued on south with her tow, and then up Jervis Inlet.

Another pink-and-white North Arm Transportation boat, hard to miss on the water.

Length: 19.29m Breadth: 6.22m Draft: 2.99m Power: 760 BHP Year Built: 1963
