An act by which one vessel, known as the tug, supplies power in order to draw another vessel, called the tow.
Towing involves dragging a vessel forward in the water through the use of a rope or cable attached to another vessel. Various state laws require that bright lights be placed upon vessels that are towing or being towed.
