G'Day All.
Not sure if this is the correct category, but its more industrial than sport :-)?.

The first is of the tug Barunga, in Newcastle harbour demonstrating its firefighting capability, and having way too much fun in the process :-).

The second is the Barunga returning to its dock, with the industrial (coal loaders) part of the port in the background.

Yep. It can be used for firefighting. Mostly it is just used for manouvering large ships in and out of the harbour. In the attached it photo it can be seen in action towing the Capstone, a 75000 Tonne DWT coal carrier into port, with 2 other tugs, Wato and Mayfield (at stern). These other two tugs are not as powerful as Barunga, despite being larger. E's a mighty midget
