"Thanks Emily! That was great tugging!"
— Inverness, Emily Goes Overboard, fourth season
  • Type: Cargo Ship

Inverness is a small cargo ship with a really pointy bow that Hank accidentally offends by calling him "needle-nose". He is very good friends with Emily after she rescued him from fog and thinks that she is good at tugging ships, despite once, nearly crashing into Owan the Oil Rig in a storm until Theodore had to save him.
