The name Tug Boats gives a fair idea about the size and task of the vessel being discussed. These are relatively smaller but very powerful for their size. These are primarily used to tug or pull vessels that cannot move by themselves like disabled ships, oil platforms and barges or those that should not move like a big or loaded ship in a narrow canal or a crowded harbor. In addition to these, tug boats are also used as ice breakers or salvage boats and as they are built with fire fighting guns and monitors, they assist in the fire fighting duties especially at harbors and when required even at sea. With the developments in the shipping industry the ships began to grow larger than they ever were in the history. It is easy to maneuver them at sea but becomes exceedingly difficult in narrow sea strips and harbors because they can move forward and backwards with ease but usually have problems with sideways movement. This is when the need of tug boats was felt and thus these vessels were introduced to help the larger ships navigate the narrow waters. This came to be known as tug assist and thus the name of the boats.
