The Travels of Tug 44

Tug Thimble

Tug Thimble isn't actually a commercial tugboat, but she wants to be one so desperately that we included her in the category. She runs on an electric golf-cart motor powered by 3 car batteries, charged by a little solar panel.

Tug Thimble is a proud ship.

See, she plays very nicely with all the big boys in the harbor.

Just gotta love it!

Tug Thimble challenges massive Tug Chancellor to a "push-off contest" at the 2006 Waterford Tugboat Roundup. Of course mighty Thimble soundly defeated that nasty Chancellor hands down.
