Hi Ken,

When a big ship gets in to the lock from the dockside they use two or three tugs.
When they enter the lock from the seaside sometimes they even use four tugs. Because of the heavy streaming from the sea and the stonger wind.

Hi Marie-Anne

How many Tugs do they use on the large ships at Antwerp, on the Thames it is usually three, sometimes only two.

Regards Ken
