Skookum Tugs

£9.99

Product description

144PP book is in very good condition and the dust jacket is as well

Ride along with these brawny boats as they catch the swells and waves of the wild West Coast, navigate deadly tidal rapids and squeeze through a winding maze of boats and bridges as they ply the mighty Fraser River. Join the Captain Bob, the biggest tug on the coast, as she tows the world's largest log barge across the open waters of the Pacific. Watch Fraser River tugs guide 600-metre log booms between bridge supports with scarcely a whisker of clearance. Observe the intricate ballet as tugs manoeuvre 2,000-tonne chip barges into impossible places. These and many more strikingly illustrated stories will both entertain and inform the reader.
