Here are the previous in this series.

As we depart downstream on this rainy day, Ocean Pierre Julien  heads upstream.

Ocean Intrepide stands by Silver Manoora and Mars S.

 

Over alongside Sorel-Tracy, Ocean Jupiter heads upstream for reasons beyond my ken.

 

The twins wait in Quebec City, and

Ocean Serge Genois, farther upstream.

All photos by Will Van Dorp.

 

And let’s make these mostly blue . . . Ocean Groupe, and mostly tugboats.  I took this photo six weeks ago in Montreal.

Ocean Stevns and Ocean Delta were at the home dock in Quebec City.  Birk Thomas had caught Ocean Delta here once four years ago.

Here’s Ocean Rusby, an incomplete and nameless vessel (Cecon Excellence?), and an Ocean pilot boat.

rt2

Ocean Henri Bain and a small fishing boat lie across from the pastoral Ile d’Orleans.

rt3

Kanguk II –a NEAS (Nunavut Eastern Arctic Shipping) small tugboat–appears to be a sister to Qimu here.  Along the port side of Kanguk II are barges for delivering containers from ship to shore.

rt4

In Montreal, it’s Ocean Serge Genois and (possibly) Ocean Intrepide.

rt5

Closer to the city, it’s Ocean Pierre Julien and Ocean Georgie Bain.  I don’t know the names of the two smaller boats to the right.

These smaller workboats include OC 32

rt8

La Trenche, and an unidentified boat underneath this bridge to NYC.

Will Van Dorp took all these photos.

What’s this . .  a catatug?  A joke of meowman or purr people?  But first, have another look at more Ocean blue tugs posted on this blog before, including the one once called Helen M. McAllister.  Click here and scroll.

All the photos today were taken in the port of Montreal.  Let’s start with Ocean Georgie Bain.

Here are more shots of Ocean Intrepide.

And that red vessel in the background, here’s

a closer look at Peniche and beyond her what I first was a Montreal fan of meow man’s literature.

MSC Donata here is getting an assist from

two Ocean tugs,

Ocean Pierre Julien and

Ocean Serge Genois.

And that returns us to the top photo, seen in its entirety here, Ocean Catatug 2 

om8

pushing Weeks 235 with some unidentified structural steel, probably related to the new bridge over the Saint Lawrence. So far, Ocean has two of these catamaran tugs.

om9

Closing out this post, it’s Blizzard Polaire.

I know there were Ocean vessels in Sorel and Trois Rivieres, which I missed.   Maybe I’ll see more next time, and I certainly want to see any and all in icebreaking activity some winter soon.   all photos here by Will Van Dorp.
