Classic example of the ship towing the tug and possible capsizing of tug a dangeous operation

indirect towing for reducing the vessels speed, very effective but dangerous in the hands of the inexperienced.

Very often used on the Manchester Ship Canal as a brake when the larger vessels used the waterway . The good old days H G Perry

if you notice this tug is connected from the bow and to my mind is twin screw z peller type, and this is the norm and safe, and it appears in very good hands..I think owned by svitzler.
