Thread Name: Who sings about tugboats?
Subject: RE: Who sings about tugboats?
Well, the guy in summer wages works on the towboats..he says so..then the towboat or tugboat goes through the straits of Georgia I presume...hard to tow a mine or an oilfield behind a towboat.which I call tugboats..

Now, weren't towboats originally what was towed in the canals? By hand or mule or whatever?

I know it is a term rarely heard by me in the states but often in Canada..mg
