John Cameron of Red Deer, once a partner in Cameron and Weir Greenhouses of Sylvan Lake, has launched his 14-foot micro tugboat “CANDUET” that is receiving lots of attention by marina watchers. The wooden tugboat, a design of Berkeley-Engineering, required hundreds of hours to build. It is powered with a 36 volt golfcart electric motor and six 6 volt deep-cycle batteries. John is helping to save Sylvan Lake by cruising around at 5-6 knots without the usual powerboat exhaust.
Here are some photos from the tugboat CANDUET in action:
