Rumour has it that Apple are planning on moving into the towage market, with tugs such as the iPull, iPush and iTow.....

Not exactly tugs, but the marina that I kept my boat at had two flat nosed landing barges pretty well used as tugs for hauling everything and any thing.  They were called  Flatass and Flatass too.

Fremont Towing Seattle Wa. USA had a small 20 Foot single screw tug line boat called Bar-F. It was a rocky rolly thing all the time .

I remember hearing about this tug way back in my working days. It worked in Puget Sound somewhere.

The Fremont tug BARF, no - was a fun little boat. It belonged to my late uncle Mark Freeman, just died a few days ago. We used it for all manner of little tow jobs on Lake Union.  She had a plywood hull that finally just gave up the ghost and they scrapped her. She was 15' long with a 25HP Universal if I recall.

The Pull and be Damned works out of LaConner for Dunlap Towing.
