Tiger Stripes & Cat Eye

Hawsehole through the hull of the Glengary Tug (David Leech)

Idle and decaying, the Glengary tug boat is moored at Government Wharf in Bella Coola, BC. Gossip inferred that the boat design was too narrow, and thus quite unstable, for the stormy waters of McLoughlin Bay. Piercing the hull is a Hawsehole, or cat hole, for those huge towing and mooring ropes called hawsers. Bridge and cabin structures were a flamboyant crimson.
