Photographer's Note

This was taken from our cruise ship balcony as we left the port of Miami.
I was surprised at how many tugboats and cargo ships went by as we stayed in port. {We were late in leaving.}
This is actually one of the tugboats [the first on the scene] used to help fight the fire on the Carnival cruise ship 'Ecstasy' back in July of 1998.
Typically tugboats are used to help maneuver larger boats in harbors. Despite their size, the boats are strong and produce between 700 to 2500 horsepower and are easily maneuverable.
