I have been fascinated by the Vancouver harbour waterfront all my life. There is a waterfront park at the foot of Main street, Crab park, where you can watch the Tymac boat dock and see their boats come and go. These are a couple of tugs and quite a few water taxi launches. They transport people around the harbour from ship to shore. The tugs are used to service the cruise ships garbage barges etc. Yesterday I sat in the park and drew for a while, then went over to North Vancouver on the sea bus. On the way I bought a Pentel Pen Brush because I want to make more expressive drawings. Close to the Sea Bus terminal is a dock where Cates tugs are moored. These are the heavy hitters which push cargo ships, barges, cruise ships, etc. when the need a little assist. i absolutely love all this marine stuff.
