Lifelines

(page 2 of 3)

Tugboats generally move boats in one of two ways, by pulling a boat with lines or by pushing it. And that happens at all hours of the day, every day of the week (holidays included). It also means work shifts sometimes last far more than eight hours. Crews, which are usually two to three people, can sleep on the boat and coordinate jobs with a central dispatcher on shore.
