    I know I will be watching this thread constantly. I do not think there can be too many tug boat pictures.

      I will be contributing to this site with pics of tugs, new and old, big and small.
      It will take some time though as I have to dig through a lot of stuff to find something that may be interesting for CV members, not just details showing rusty tanks or faulty equipment.

        If you have any pictures of tugs out of the water or in dry dock I would love to see them.

            Harbour Tugs & Tug in dock

            Here is a couple of modern Harbour Tugs, known as "Tractors". This type assist ships during berthing and un-berthing by pushing or pulling as requested by the Pilot.

            Speed and pull force is about the same whether going ahead or astern and they are frequently seen steaming between jobs "arse end first" as is seen here:


            A bit closer look at one such tug, standing by to assist in berthing a Tanker at Pulau Bukom Refinery:


            Sorry about the grainy images but these pics were taken with my small "work camera" using electronic zoom.

            Here is the latest Harbour Tug working in the Port of Singapore, Star Admiral, 5,630 Bhp/ 70 t. BP. Built by Choy Lee in China, delivered earlier this year.

            This pic was taken from PSA Marine web site: http://www.psamarine.com/images/pdfs/25_STARADMIRAL.pdf

            Pilotdane, you asked about tugs in dock. Well, here is a very good example of a typical 2,400 Bhp Towing Tug of the type widely used around S.E.Asia to tow barges etc. Basic design and equipment, but efficient and adequate for the purpose:





            More tug pics to come.

              Thank you for the great photographs.

              What I would give to spend a day on a working tug. Of all the ships/boats I have spent time around. I have never been on a tug.

                Name your price. I could probably get you a day and a night on a working tug in Singapore, but you have to get here by yourself.

                As for me, I only go on tugs if I'm paid for it, and then only for a short visit.

                I'll dig up some more Tug pics when time permits.

                          I guess it's been a long day after very little sleep....but I was scrolling down looking for the new post, and suddenly thought to myself... "this thread could be relabeled "Pilot Dane's Tugboat PØRN" (take THAT, you filters...)and I caught a glimpse of Dane's comment and I found myself crying I was laughing so hard....

                          yeap, definitely need sleep tonight..............

                              Since you cannot come to Singapore just to spend a day on a tug, the tug will have to come to you, at last by some pics from two Harbour Tugs, one nearly new and one old.

                              Here is the Pusher Tug "Maju Star", built 2005. 3600 Bhp / 45 t. BP:
