Seaspan Commodore

We rarely see the larger Seaspan tugs off Powell River, and since the Mill's Woodroom shut down many years ago, it is even rarer to see one of these self-loading/self-dumping barges. This is the Seaspan Commodore and the logbarge Seaspan Phoenix.

I saw the pair of them, loaded with logs, heading south on Malaspina Strait on Sunday morning. They were going to the Stillwater log sort, where the Phoenix offloaded. But it seems that once she dumped, they couldn't get this Phoenix to rise again, she's listing to starboard. Sunday night the Commodore and her tow came back up the Strait, lights ablazing, and anchored off Second Beach. They were still there yesterday morning when I grabbed these shots, interesting additions to my collection of tugboat pictures.
