Tugboat: A Journey Through the Panama Canal

We sometimes don’t give credit to the little things in life. Take this tugboat for an instance. With an output of nearly 6000 horsepower and a bollard pull of more then 65 metric tons, this piece of machinery is responsible of all the heavy lifting in the canals. Without these boats, some vessels can’t dock correctly and at times lose control and become runaways. Follow the journey of one of these tugboats with SAVANT’s Tom Fowlks.
