We landlubbers rarely see tugboats in the normal course of events, but we often read about them to our children and grandchildren.

Tugboats in children's stories are spunky, cheerful little creatures. The didactic intention of these stories is of course to encourage the children to be spunky, cheerful little creatures themselves, instead of just whining and moaning as they are prone to do if left to their own devices.

Anyway for us it's always fun to see a tugboat in action, as here in the Fehmarn Belt from the ferry between Germany and Denmark.

Update: VT member Tugboatguy, who as his member-name implies knows a lot about tugboats, was kind enough to have a look at my photos. He says the Baltsund is "a fine working tug" with a North Sea bridge like the one on his own tugboat. "The design deflects a green wave deck-ward rather than busting the windshields/glass."
