These are not SWATH technology boats. The pods have no bouancy, and
the boats do not float on them above the surface of the water.

These boats are ATB tugs and designed to run attached to it's barge.
Notice the big PIN in the side of the boats. That is to secure the attachment
to the barges once the tug is in position.

Thanks, Suds. A beefy looking tug for sure. Is there a reason they didn't put their logo on the stacks?

I live 6 blocks from the "Dakota Creek" ship yard. Last year, I took this picture of #3.       Michael in Anacortes, Wahsington.

Yet another case of why men and women go down to the sea in ships. . .A pleasure to be here and smell the salt air. Thank you Tugboat Forum. . .Michael in Anacortes, Washington www.twotugboats.com
