Jan Hansen captured this tug and barge sailing by Shoreline last week. 

John Crawford identified it as an articulated tug barge (ATB). ATBs consist of a tank vessel (barge) and a large, powerful tug that is positioned in a notch in the stern of the barge, which enables the tug to propel and maneuver the barge.

And, he says, it could be a Crowley ATB as they operate on the West Coast.
