General tug info

Hello everyone

I'm trying to find some information about the way in which tugs operate. I am interested in harbour tugs and Thames barge towing tugs. Can anybody recommend websites, books, dvds or videos with good pictures and rexts describing the way tugs operate.

Alternatively can anyone suggest a busy harbour with lots of activity I could visit? I'm in the south east of England.

I've just started a similar thread in "Research" so hope there is no confusion.

Thanks and best wishes
