Back to Port Tour 
The Dawson family has been a fixture on the waterfront since the early 1950's when Elliott Dawson started a "bum boat" business, or floating store to sell items to anchored vessels.  His son Gerry purchased the company in 1983, with Gerry's son Nathan joining in 2005.  Tugs Robert W., Miseford, Glenada and Point Valour (800 - 1900 hp) are run by the most experienced captains in the port and have earned an excellent reputation for ship handling, ice breaking, marine salvage and emergency response.
Barges Paul Becotte S., and Keewanis, both with 350 ton capacities, along with smaller boats and equipment have done dredging, underwater construction and repairs and spill cleanup both in the port and surrounding areas.
