The seagoing tug boat Western Titan is making its way home under the open railroad bridge along the ship canal. Contemporary tugs like this regularly tow cargo between Seattle and Alaska. The Western Towboat Company has 19 different tugs and several barges in its fleet and has been family owned and operated here since 1948.
