From the early British and Dutch towing companies to the current Canadian and American conglomerates, towing has been a diverse and economically significant part of trade and commerce. Tugs moved great log booms downstream to pulp and paper mills, pushed sailing ships and huge ocean liners to their berths, towed cargo barges, ranged across oceans and as far as the Arctic. --The book takes us from the first steam-powered paddle wheelers to the ultra-modern ocean tugs with sophisticated propulsion and positioning capabilities serving the North Sea oilrigs. Profusely illustrated with photographs from the author's vast collection, with superb line drawings and plans of tugs"---, on the cover the tilte is Under Tow a History of Tugs and Towing ---on the title page the title is Under Tow a Canadian History of Tugs and Towing ---but the contents references many things decidely not Canadian like The Monitor and The Merrimack, the European Theatre; The Royal Navy; Holland's Glory ---the majority of the contents does reference Canada and Canadian aspects of towing, ---no matter the contents a very nice book, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///NOT SIGNED ---GUARANTEED to be AVAILABLE///
