Tug reference books/websites

I worked in the USA for more than six months during 2002 and saw many tugs in my travels. Although I have managed to track down information for most of the larger tug fleets I have found it very difficult to find information about tugs from smaller fleets especially the pusher tugs found on coastal and river environments. Does anyone know of any good reference books or websites on this subject? www.equasis.org is very good but this also only covers the larger fleets.

Thanks everyone, tried all of them and yes, excellent sites. I found another good site for US ships including many of the tugs I was tracking down.
