Sydney Port's fire-fighting tug 'Shirley Smith', Sydney Harbour
Randi Svensen* reports while tugs may be just one link in a long chain, they heralded Australia’s entry as a major player in the world’s trade arena.
When you’re on your boat on Sydney Harbour and a tanker or car-carrier glides gracefully past, what do you see? Do you wonder how such a large vessel can navigate the narrow channel in relatively shallow water to berth safely, and assume technology gets it there, or do you notice the tugboats, gently pushing and pulling their charge to its destination?
Ocean-going ships can’t manoeuvre easily at slow speeds so as well as pushing and pulling, tugs act as an extra rudder or brake, allowing the ship freedom of movement in closequarters it could never have on its own.
Without tugs, our ports would be inaccessible and trade to and from Australia would be almost impossible.
The sea is our lifeblood, and the reality is that this country needs shipping to survive, and shipping needs tugboats.
Granted, some modern ships are equipped with ‘inbuilt tugs’ – the Queen Mary 2, for example, is one of the few ships that could have berthed herself when she visited us earlier this year – but the technology of thrusters and azimuthing z-pellers, which allow ships to move sideways, is expensive and not justified in the case of those that do not often make port.
Tugs are, and will continue to be, an essential service for the survival of an island nation.
But tugs don’t just tow and guide ships.
On any day on Sydney Harbour you will see, as well as the large ship-handling tugs, the smaller workhorses of the tug industry like Polaris Marine’s Fern Bay and Leveret bustling about, moving floating cranes and barges.
Highly visible are Sydney Ports’ bright orange and yellow fire-fighting tugs Ted Noffs and Shirley Smith, but look carefully and you might also spot our Defence Force tugs with their understated livery of blue and cream or just plain grey.
Tugs are the worker ants of our harbours manoeuvring these enormous ships many times their own size. Without tugs, there would be no trade. Without trade, as was seen during World War II when merchant shipping was limited and extremely vulnerable, we risk being deprived of everything from basic foodstuffs to luxury consumer goods, unthought of in this age of plasma screens and 4WDs.
People talk of tugs from different perspectives – their strength, their power, or even that they are ‘cute’. My own tugboat odyssey began just over a year ago, when I was asked to chronicle the history of tugs and the towage industry in Australia. A keen historian and boatie, I was challenged and excited by the project because, like most people, I knew little or nothing about tugs beyond a distant romantic fascination.
I fell in love with them on my very first trip, on Adsteam’s Wombi, bringing the fully-laden tanker Ce-Ulsan into a tiny bay on Port Jackson. The Sydney sunlight shimmered that morning as the tugs manoeuvred the ship down the harbour in what – from the deck of a tug – feels like a slow, sensual dance.
The usual harbour tugboat crew of three – the master, engineer and a deckhand – worked as a well-oiled team, in an atmosphere of egalitarian camaraderie, serious when necessary and a lot of fun the rest of the time. The concise, polite patois between the ship’s pilot and the tug master was testimony to their mutual respect, from the greeting and acknowledgement of directions, to the pilot’s “Thank you Wombi” when the tug was released.
My tally of tug rides is growing. I’ve been on jobs tending oil tankers and bulk carriers. I’ve been on one of Adsteam’s multi-million dollar z-peller tugs as her fire monitors were tested, water spraying far into the distance, when the appearance of rainbows through the mist gave an unexpected glimpse of beauty that tempered the raw power of the fire-fighting equipment.
So powerful are these water pumps that, with the propellers disengaged, a tug with fire monitors blazing forward can be travelling at six knots astern. I’ve also experienced the G-forces as a tug turned, at speed, in its own length – without warning to me from the skipper, who was obviously testing my sea-legs which, I’m pleased to report, didn’t fail me.
I’ve started a tug’s massive engine by pressing firmly with the palm of my hand on a rounded disk about eight centimetres in diameter until the engine rewarded me with a satisfying roar. I’ve watched dolphins surf a bulk carrier’s bow waves only metres from the attending tug and I’ve been at the helm of a tug for a few minutes, albeit very closely supervised, and controlled the 5,000hp engines with only two small joysticks.
There’s nothing in the world like being on a tug job and it’s heady stuff for an otherwise deskbound researcher whose usual haunts are libraries and museums.
But there’s much, much more to the story of tugs than the marvels of today’s engineering, the result of 300 years of development and refinement.
