Tug Boat Rowland Brusco Sr.

Home port for the Rowland Brusco Sr. is on the Columbia River in Oregon.

After five days traveling south along the Pacific Coastline, it tucked into Humboldt Bay for a day to refuel and take on supplies. Built in 1965 and originally working out of Port Hueneme before relocating to the Columbia River Basin, this tug is now returning to service at Port Hueneme, south of Santa Barbara, California.
