CHANGES IN THE TOWAGE INDUSTRY

The design of harbor tugs has changed substantially in recent years. Local conditions, environment and tradition have all played a role in the gradual development of a tug suitable for each particular port. The author gives a brief historical review of past changes in harbor tug design and then turns attention to the current thinking in various vital areas of tug design and operation. These areas that are discussed cover: hull dimensions; Kort nozzles; prime movers; auxiliaries; crew living and recreational areas; deck machinery; ropes and rope-handling devices; and wheelhouses and their equipment.
