The tug Pride was built in 1957 by Strege Fisheries as a fish tug. She was eventually sold Canadian, and later sold to Willy’s Contracting of Southampton, ON. Willy’s converted the Pride into a towing vessel.

The Pride is Willy’s busiest tug, and is used to dock ships in Goderich and Sarnia, ON, as well as breaking ice in those ports and providing towing and escort services as needed on Lake Huron and the St. Clair River.
