Ah, I see, thanks for enlightening me:-)

Yes ,I am.
This tug will be part of a ATB unit matched up to a petroleum barge using the coupling pins you see on her side. the wheelhouse has good visibility when the barge is empty. Everything above the second deck ,I think, is made of aluminum.

You're kidding, CaptDag, aren't you???

But another question, why do they have these "mile high" bridges? Navigational purposes?
cdag on Apr 08, 2011 23:10 (7 years ago)
Daniel, would you please compile a list of all "ugly " vessels from my photos and I will quickly delete them.
Daniel Bérubé on Apr 08, 2011 20:48 (7 years ago)
Hello Benny,
No,if you read my comment again,you will notice that I wrote: remove wich is not the same as delete. I did not want to start another war on here! I hoped the person who posted the image would remove it, I did not meant for the administrator to delete it. I once made a similar comment to another photographer and he wrote back to say he agreed with me. Even though they have fleets of similar tugs in the USA, they still are ugly when you compare with the modern ASD.

Daniel why delete the image, is it a provocation? , we delete when no ugly cars, people, oma . I'm sure it is a good tool in the Branched to push some large barges
Leka Christian on Apr 07, 2011 15:04 (7 years ago)
He's looks alike Lockness Monster :)
Daniel Bérubé on Apr 07, 2011 03:33 (7 years ago)
Thank you for your comments. Please search this website for photos of the tugs, actually, ASDs, Brent and Ginger and then you will know what a nice, cute 30m tug looks like. Hope you all enjoy a good nite...

Hey Robert, is it spring in Quebec yet?
Robert Tremblay on Apr 07, 2011 02:00 (7 years ago)
Salut Daniel, well i must say i agree 100% wiht Magogman and Captain Ted....We may not like something but that does not mean it is ugly, it just means that the person who said that just don't like that particular think....When Effel build his big tower In Paris, lot of people say that was a ugly steel thing but now almost everyone find it marvelous....and so it is.... On my side i look those kinds of ship very funny they remind me those big goode with long neck trying to give a good look over others necks...
Well Daniel, si tu n'aimes vraiment pas ce genre de tugs, rien ne te force à le y a tant d'autres à voir sur le site....Il en faut pour tous les goûts et surtout dans le cas qui nous intéresse pour tous les usages en ce bas. À chacun de faire sa place sans pour autant démolir celle des autes.
Bonne soirée, Robert08
Magogman on Apr 07, 2011 01:23 (7 years ago)
I hope you are joking Daniel Berube --- just because YOU think something is ugly is NOT a reason to demand removal of a photo. I think a very large number of photos on this site are ugly or not very good but that is not a reason to demand their removal. Freedom of expression is a basic right in a democratic society and I will defend anyone's right to post a photo, good, bad or ugly.
Captain Ted on Apr 07, 2011 00:48 (7 years ago)
Why remove,,something different,,great shot
Naviguesser on Apr 07, 2011 00:45 (7 years ago)
Great shot. I've been hearing good things about her sister ships that are out working already.
Daniel Bérubé on Apr 06, 2011 23:54 (7 years ago)
Very ugly tug, please somebody, remove this photo.
