While square-rigged sailing ships, steamboats and ferries, and ever-larger cruise and cargo-carrying vessels have made their mark on Puget Sound’s maritime history, no other vessels have captured the imagination of shore-bound seafarers like tugboats. Beginning in the 1850s when the first steam-powered tugboats arrived in the Sound from the East Coast via San Francisco, company owners and their crews competed fiercely for business, towing ships, log rafts, and barges. The magnetic attraction of powerful, tough tugs both large and small is unexplainable but enduring. This book, featuring about 200 rare historic images and carefully researched text, tells the colorful story of tug boating on Puget Sound.

About the Author:

Author and maritime historian Chuck Fowler’s lifelong interest in tugboats began as a youth, watching the rugged workboats pass by his family’s island beach house. He has avidly pursued maritime activities and history, and is now president of the Puget Sound Maritime Historical Society in Seattle and cofounder of the regional Pacific Northwest Maritime Heritage Council. Coauthor Capt. Mark Freeman was reared on Seattle’s Lake Union. The son of legendary Fremont district boat broker and entrepreneur O. H. “Doc” Freeman, Mark charted his own maritime course. He operated his own single-tugboat business at the age of 13, served as a medal-winning U.S. Coast Guardsman, and later became a tugboat captain and successful marine businessman.
