Hanson Maritime Co. started towing in January 2000 with the acquisition of the tug Lutak Pride, formerly the Peter Foss.  Company president Lee Hanson started on tugs long before at age 16, and is the primary captain at Hanson Maritime.  Our current tug was purchased from Seley Incorporated in 2015, and after four months in dry dock, was christened the “Salvation” and ready for towing and salvage work.  Originally built for the U.S.Navy but never commissioned, the Salvation was owned for nearly two decades by Western Towboat Co. as the San Francisco, and later by the Mogul Ocean Towing Co. as the Tori M.
