It's like this tug has a mustache.

Frances the Tugboat sounds like a children's book.

Tugboat gawking

waterford tugboat roundup 2016

Right to the point, no circumnavigation: The Waterford Tugboat Roundup was this past weekend, and we stopped to gawk at the boats.

Here are a bunch of photos so that you, too, can gawk at the boats.

Warning: The set includes photos of tugboats that aren't much bigger than a bathtub. (But they're still very tough, of course... very small and tough...) These will challenge your ability to handle nautical transportation cuteness. (Will you want to draw faces on some of these tugboats? It's possible.)

Photos are above in large format -- click or scroll all the way up.
