Pacific Freedom

Pacific Freedom was the tugboat used to tow Just Read the Instructions from the Port of Los Angeles out into the Pacific Ocean.

Pacific Freedom, under the name International Freedom, first towed JRTI in January 2016 during the first droneship landing attempt on the west coast. The ship returned again in mid-2018 to tow JRTI a further 3 times.

Pacific Freedom was retired from the fleet in 2019 when Just Read the Instructions was moved to the US East Coast.
