Lakers rarely use tugs. This ship, along with several others, is designed for this river. They are some of the most maneuverable boats in the world and they carry cargo from the full size lakers up the river to the steel mills. Every operating laker is equipped with bow thrusters and several have stern thrusters, and in addition to that all great lakes captains are licensed pilots in their ports of call.
