Initially, this video was going to be of boats and the views from boats in general. However, the way the tug footage and the music interacted lead me to develop this sequence as a tribute to tugs. It just worked out that way.
Special thanks to Alasdair Fraser and Natalie Haas for their permission to use their recording.
The music is "Josephin's Waltz", written by Roger Tallroth of the Swedish folk band "Väsen", arranged and recorded by A. Fraser and N. Haas.
