With over 200 tugboats, Smit is one of the largest tugboat companies in the world and is probably best known for their deepsea salvage tugs
which range from 14,000 to 20,000 horsepower.  The
Smit tugs depicted here are much smaller (approx 1/10 the horsepower) but hard working
all the same.  This foreshortened image shows them moored in British Columbia on the Fraser River
