Like James Brown was the hardest working man in showbusiness, this boat might be the hardestworking Tug in Portsmouth Harbor. These things have unbelievable engines, and travel in pairs to guide the gigantic freighters through the windy and narrow Piscataqua River and through Portsmouth Harbor. Stop in to visit the folks at Tugboat Alley on Bow Street to hear more history and about the innerworkings of the boats. Lots of folks come down to the decks to enjoy a beverage (or two), or eat their ice cream on the city’s deck next to Poco’s and admire the tugboats.
