Strange American Tugs
With this post I’ll probably upset my friends Bowsprite & Tugster from NYC a bit, sorry guys but it is necessary for the greater good! Here in the Olde Worlde of Europe we cast strange looks at the tugs you are using over there, those with the giraffe-like necks, those sometimes looking like a bowlingpin. And yes: I know why they are build like that: to look over the barges they are pushing but that doesn’t take away the fact that they look strange, silly, sometimes even funny and occasionally…dare I say it??……..ugly!
Above you see the Coho and the Erie Service, below you’ll find more examples……

Rest assured that there will be more episodes like this, including ones about strange European / Asian/ Outer-world tugs!
