New Berlin Tugboats , Jacksonville FL

Tugboats docked at the foot of New Berlin Road on the St Johns River. New Berlin was a bustling important river town where trade occured, and tugboats and ships were docked on the St Johns River.

A tugboat (tug) is a boat that maneuvers vessels by pushing or towing them. Tugs move vessels that either should not move themselves, such as ships in a crowded harbor or a narrow canal, or those that cannot move by themselves, such as barges, disabled ships, log rafts, or oil platforms. Tugboats are powerful for their size and strongly built, and some are ocean-going.
