Although the change from Tug- to Pushboats took place a long time ago the traditional towing services still exist. The ‘towing’ of ,amongst others, barges with broken down engines or steering equipment, dredging materials, yachts, houseboats etc. still takes places on a regular basis. Furthermore for assisting yards with launchings and docking of vessels the traditional tugs are still in use. Where in the old days a lot was being towed now the majority is being ‘pushed’ For years already we ‘push’ hulls of barges and pushbarges both nationals as international.
