American Tug Photos

I have always admired the American Tug line and even considered buying an AT34 before my wife and I purchased a Great Harbour N37. This series of shots is RecRoom, a 2015 AT365 approaching the new Highway 68 Bridge that crosses Kentucky Lake at Land Between the Lakes. She is a beautiful little tug and these photos are too nice not to share.

Wye Tug

We traveled with Wye Tug, a 2005 AT34, for a few days last October. They were doing the loop and we were traveling from Kentucky Lake to Florida. The first shot is an early morning port side pass coming out of the Demopolis Lock. The second shot was taken the next day from the floating dock at Bobby's Fish Camp. There were six of us anchored near or in Bashi Creek the night before. Three of us opted for a short day and stopped at Bobby's and Wye Tug along with the other two boats went on ahead.

I wonder if my AT34 rides bow down like that or the owner 'hide' too much under the fwd berth?
Maybe one day I should tie down the wheel, throttle up to 2 knots and run a head to look.

If you should care to throttle up to 18 knots, you would look like this.
