The Barge Run

Three or four times a week, week in and week out, City Transfer tows a barge of semi-trailers between
their terminal in Richmond and their terminal at the Mill harbour and back. A good deal of the retail merchandise sold
in Powell River stores arrives this way. Here we have Catherwood Towing's Sea Imp IX pulling the City Transfer
barge back south on Malaspina Strait, having just rounded Grief Point on one of our poor weather days last week.


  1. When I'm at the condo I use the binoculars to watch the boats and tugs going by. Your lens is way better. - Margy

  2. I'd have a lot of gratitude to those tugs if I lived in Powell River!
