My favourite tug, the Point Halifax, was delivered in late 1986 - the same year that Shipfax began as a newsletter.
It was sold to McKeil Marine in 2012 and renamed Leonard M.
It was the first ASD tug in Halifax, rated at 4200 bhp and 62 tons bollard pull.
Seen here from the wheelhouse of the Point Vibert while docking the tanker Ambra Dolphin at the Ultramar dock, Eastern Passage, Halifax, February 6, 1992.
