I don’t mean what the shoulder-sitting parrot does on my ear when he’s hungry, nor do I mean live-aboard tugs of either working or no-longer working sort; I mean these hybrid trawler tugs, all pleasure. The two steel-hulled boats below are less than 10 years old, one-off design built and registered in Port Dover, Ontario; and hanging out at the Tug Roundup. The lines are certainly tug-inspired.

Tugs Margot and Benjamin Elliot work for the NYS Canal Corporation, and their hangers-on include some tug-inspired fiberglass boats.
