Thread Name: Who sings about tugboats?
Subject: RE: Who sings about tugboats?
Art Thieme also deserves credit for his contributions to the Unsinkable Tugboat song challenge.

Couldn't find any tugboat songs on Shanty Jack's first recording MAIDEN VOYAGE (1993) but I bet he sings some.


There must be a song about the old sidewheel tugs as pictured in "Fighting Temeraire." There is a nice example of a surviving one at the San Francisco Maritime Museum, the Eppleton Hall, a side-wheel tugboat built in England in 1914 to operate on London's River Thames.
