I love purpose built ships/tugs etc. They may look strange but do their job 100%.

Nice photo BTW Captain Ted.

This towboat may appear to be odd looking but it was built specifically to move coal barges through Industrial Lock at New Orleans. The barges were loaded at a mine in Kentucky and were towed to a power plant in Florida. The barges had to be shuttled through the lock and the LOCKMASTER was built to fit into the lock with two of the barges while two more barges were handled by the larger towboat taking them to and from Florida. This little boat has 2x675 hp.
