A question right up his seaway.

Liz and I were discussing this the other day up at Dundee.

Bridges? Forward, aft and midships, why do different vessels have them in different positions?

From a none mariners perspective I'd have assumed forward would be best so you can see where you're going better, but on reflection this would be fine only for smaller vessels, Tugs (aye aye cap'n) would be midships as they need max visibility in all directions when working, so that makes sense, and aft seems to be the most useful for keeping a straight line as you can fix the bow on a point and see if you deviate from it, yachts and small outboard motor driven vessels seem to favour this too.

But is there a definitive answer?

And if so, does Tuggers have eyes that swivel through 360 degrees due to his occupation?

I believe the dear chap Geoff, may have been told to swivel, but not by I for sure.

Wasn't he heading for parts north soonly?
