A big interest of mine is historic tugboats. The following pages are in-depth coverage of specific tugs (and some other vessels), featuring their design, propulsion, history, and disposition among other details. A few of these posts cover some specific facts as well on a certain boat. I have quite a few more of these planned! Click the following photos to take you to each page.
