Well known local shipping enthusiast and photographer Trevor Powell OAM (his father was an RAAF WW2 Veteran), whose knowledge of shipping in our region is legendary, chats with Port Adelaide Tug Boat Master Travis Robbins. It’s a unique look into what happens in the life of those involved in our coastal shipping, and the history of our great little tug boats.
