Nice bunch of photos set to music of the Crowley tugs. They have a few of the ones in Alaska in the slide show. That brought back memories 🙂 I used to work on those tankers the tugs were helping out. I sailed as AB (able body seaman) for SeaRiver Maritime all through the 90’s ( had to step down from 1600 ton master to get the tonnage on my license so I could sit for 3rd mate- long story). We went from LA or San Francisco Bay CA, or Anacortes WA to Valdez Alaska. We would fill up with crude oil in Valdez and bring it down south to the refineries. Tug escort was always a good way to make some overtime.
