Tugs: The Worlds Hardest Working Boats by Josh Leventhal. Published by Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers Inc, New York, NY, 1999. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Folio (up to 15'' tall). Condition: Nr Fine in Torn & Taped DJ. Coffee-table book, 13-3/4 X 14 inches. 112 Pgs. LCCN 99-40545. 1579120857. Mechanics, Lore and History of Tugboats, Barges and Scows Around the World. From the story of the first tug (whose maiden voyage was also her last), to today's powerful, state-of-the-art tractor tugboats. This book explores the fascinating stories, mechanics and lore of the world's hardest-working boats. You will see how tugs, through an intricate choreography of movements, navigate massive ships, tankers and barges into incredibly narrow waterways, through the elaborate locks of busy canals, around perilous shallows and into tight docking bays. The rigors of the tugboat world demand a delicate balance of nautical engineering, brute motor force and coordination among vessels. Any misstep can mean the difference between safe passage and disaster. Illustrated with black & white and color photos. Description text copyright 2019 BooksForComfort. Item ID 32760.
