The Glen-class tugs were a class of tugboats of the Royal Canadian Navy built during the Second World War. There were three designs of the tugboat; two were of steel-hulled construction and the other was wooden-hulled. Of the 20 of the class built, 16 were of the steel-hulled type; 11 built by Russel Bros. of Owen Sound, Ontario and 5 by Canadian Dredge & Dock Co., Kingston, Ontario. Of the four wooden-hulled type; three were built by McKenzie Barge and Derrick, Vancouver, British Columbia, and one by LeBlanc Shipbuilding, Weymouth, Nova Scotia.[1] All but one – Glendyne – were sold into commercial service after the war.

Designs[edit]

Steel-hulled[edit]

The steel-hulled tugs all had the same hull design and dimensions, but were of two types; the Long House (Design A) and the Short House (Design B).[1]

The Long House-type had the main deck house extending aft over the engine room, with the bulwarks extending the entire length of the hull. They were powered by an 8-cylinder diesel engine built by the Vivian Engine Works, Vancouver.[1]

The Short House-type had a shorter main deck house with a trunk style house over the engine room, with raised bulwarks forward and aft. German tank tree war thunder. They were powered by a 6-cylinder diesel engine built by the Enterprise Engine & Foundry Company, San Francisco.[1]

Wooden-hulled[edit]

Three wooden-hulled tugs were built by McKenzie Barge and Derrick of Vancouver, the Glendevon, Glendon and Glenholme. Glenholme was completed in 1945, but was never commissioned into naval service.[1]

The Glenwood, built by LeBlanc Shipbuilding, Weymouth, Nova Scotia, was incomplete when the war ended. She was sold to St. John Drydock & Shipbuilding Co., completed and renamed Ocean Weka.[1]
