My vessel, my responsibility - tow boats: T29-118/4-2014E-MP4

"From fishing vessels to water taxis, tugboats to police craft, small non-pleasure vessels are a common sight on Canada’s waters. But accidents can happen at any time – and to anyone. As the operator of a small non-pleasure vessel, it’s your responsibility to make sure your vessel operates safely and is properly equipped for emergencies. Powerful and agile, towboats – also called tugs – make their job look easy. But when you’re pulling barges and other vessels, you need to be ready for anything. Staying alert is key, especially on the aft deck. Bridles and towlines can have a mind of their own, so make sure you’re not in a position where you could get caught in a tight wire. The nature of the job means towboats can lean at sharp angles. To keep water out, make sure all doors and hatches on the main deck are closed – and inspect their watertight seals on a regular basis"--Narration.
