Glad you like the shot Ben. I must admit that I've never seen a tug being 'driven' like this, in fact I was wondering how :-)

Cheers

Cracking shot Phil. Its quite rare to see them driving from 'up top'. I photographed it myself but nowhere near as clear as this. Its a pitty shes getting knocked about with no tyre between the barge and the tug to act as a fender when other boats go past and send in a bit of a swell.
