British Columbia's Working TugboatsBook - 2002
Ride along with these brawny boats as they catch the swells and waves of the wild West Coast, navigate deadly tidal rapids and squeeze through a winding maze of boats and bridges as they ply the mighty Fraser River.Join the Captain Bob , the biggest tug on the coast, as she tows the world's largest log barge across the open waters of the Pacific. Watch Fraser River tugs guide 600-metre log booms between bridge supports with scarcely a whisker of clearance. Observe the intricate ballet as tugs manoeuvre 2,000-tonne chip barges into impossible places. These and many more strikingly illustrated stories will both entertain and inform the reader.
