Funny place to have a thruster warning sign, lol.

Think I saw her in Loch Long today.

Its a funnel thruster !, be interesting to hear from someone with experience of these types of tug why they have a thruster seeing as they are ASD tugs

I am reliably informed that the bow-thruster is purely for improved manoeuvrability within docks and harbours and not used while towing.
