Huge Tugboat Coming To Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on August 7, 2009

Want to see the country’s largest towboat? Head down to the Ottawa Riverfront Saturday.

Public tours of the Motor Vessel Mississippi run from 10 until 2. The towboat is docked off Allen Park. It’s actually coming into town late tonight but won’t open to the public until the scheduled tours.

The towboat has five stories. It’s 52 feet tall and 241 feet long.
