Description: Towing operations do not, in general, occur often in the normal service of the majority of vessels. Of course harbour and river tugs are utilised for port entries and departures, however in these circumstances the towing is being performed by the tug. Towing operations for the majority of seamen may therefore only ever be conducted in emergency situations whereby assistance is offered to another vessel or where another vessel offers assistance to the mariner’s own vessel.
For anchor handling vessels however, the ability to conduct towing operations for semi-submersibles, jack-ups, barges and other monohull vessels is essential and an integral part of the vessels function.
The knowledge and equipment required to perform these disparate operations are in the most part common, however certain restrictions and considerations may affect only certain towing operations.
