Phillip is a large coastal tug. He was bought mainly to tow log rafts up and down the coast. He is very strong, but can get homesick for the Pacific Northwest, particularly Puget Sound, where he used to work. Once, Ten Cents tried to make him less homesick by having all the star tugs get repainted into the colors of the Puget Sound Tug Boat Company, but it failed, and Phillip felt more homesick than before. He wanted to leave, but when he was on his way out, he realized something. Bigg City was his home. He now is happy there, and gives all the Z-Stacks a run for their money.
