Tugboats Illustrated : History, Technology, Seamanship

Resumé - This book traces the evolution, design, and role of tugboats, ranging from the first steam-powered tug to today's hyper-specialized offshore workboats. Through extensive photographs, dynamic drawings, and enlightening diagrams, he explores the development of these hard-working boats, always shaped by the demands of their waterborne environment, by an ever-present element of danger, and by advancements in technology.
Whether making impossible turns in small spaces, crashing through huge swells, pushing or pulling or prodding or coaxing or escorting, we come to understand not only what tugs do, but how physics and engineering allow them to do it.

From the deck layout of a nineteenth-century sidewheel tug to the mechanics of barge towing - whether by humans, mules, steam or diesel engines - to the advantages of various types and configurations of propulsion systems, to the operation of an oil rig anchor-handling tug/supply vessel, Tugboats Illustrated is a comprehensive tribute to these beloved workhorses of the sea and their intrepid crews.

Tugs in Colour - British Built

Resumé - This book is a sequel to Andrew Wiltshire's first book on tugs Looking Back at British Tugs. This time he concentrates on examples that were completed in British Shipyards. He has always been fascinated by the number of small shipyards that once existed around the UK, and often by the location of these yards.
Many of these yards specialised in building tugs large and small for the homemarket as well as for customers overseas, and not just in the British colonies.

Such was the quality of British-built tugs, that some went onto give many years of service. In 2016 a surprising number that have exceeded their 50th birthday can be found hard at work at locations around the world.

This book covers tugs built at 46 different UK shipyards.

Svitzer Tugs (1) - UK

Resumé - The story of Em. Z. Svitzers Bjergningsentreprise (Svitzer) begins in 1833 when Emil Zeuthen Svitzer, a Danish entrepreneur, established a salvage business after noticing many losses occurring on trade routes to and from Denmark.
Its business extended to harbour towage in due course. The company has expanded considerably over the past two decades and claims to have 430 vessels working in about 100 different locations throughout the world.

Because of the huge size of the Svitzer fleet, it will be covered in two volumes. This first volume looks at the company's tugs working in the UK and it will be followed by the second volume which will cover tugs working outside the UK.
The album is organised in chronological order according to year of construction, the exception being at the end of the book where the latest Milford Haven tugs are grouped together.

We look at tugs in Canada, the Caribbean, the Far East and finally Australia where Svitzer has gained prominence.

Mersey Tugs Through Time

Resumé - The main role of the tug is to assist vessels in the river or within the dock system by moving them by pushing or towing. They are also used to tow barges or platforms which have no engines or methods of propulsion. Tugs are designed to be highly manoeuvrable and powerful as they normally work with large vessels in restricted spaces.
The main towing companies operating on the Mersey in the twentieth century were J. & J. H. Rea Limited, Liverpool Screw Towing Company and the Alexandra Towing Company Limited.

Mersey tugs were employed to work with passenger liners, cargo vessels, oil tankers and other vessels working on the river. The modern tug is equipped with azimuthing thrusters or Voith Schneider Vertical propellers which enable them to generate the thrust required for towing the larger vessels which are now being built.

In this book, Ian Collard charts the development of the Mersey tug from the late nineteenth century to the present day.

Moderne Eisbrecher auf allen Weltmeeren (Typen-Kompass)

Resumé - In den seit Menschengedenken von eisigen und winterlichen Bedingungen geprägten Küstenregionen Nordeuropas, Nordamerikas und Asiens würden die Schifffahrt und Seetransporte monatelang zum Erliegen kommen, würde das Fahrwasser nicht immer wieder von Eisbrechern freigehalten.

Auch wissenschaftliche Forschungen in Arktis und Antarktis wären ohne Eisbrecher und eisbrechende Forschungsschiffe undenkbar. Um unter den Voraussetzungen von mehreren Metern dicken Eisschichten, Eisbergen und Packeis arbeiten zu können, müssen die beeindruckenden Schiffe enormen Belastungen standhalten.

Dieser Typenkompass vermittelt im handlichen Format einen Überblick über die moderne Eisbrecher.
