Hank is a helpful young tugboat in the Big Harbor and a good friend of Theodore. He wears a blue toque and is the smallest, funniest, fastest tugboat in Big Harbor.
Hank's job is, like Theodore, to be a harbor tug, moving barges (usually from the side instead of the front unlike the other Tugs) and being the pusher in the job of moving big ships and boats.
He loves to make funny faces and noises as a way of getting attention. He can be very sensitive too, and usually gets ignored for being the smallest. But whenever he feels down, he always turns to Theodore for help or guidance. But out of all the other tugboats, Hank is special because of his good humour and nature to learn and grow from his mistakes. He works with Bonavista Barge and Shediac. Once he stayed up to see Owan. He once wanted to be called Henry in Hank's new name. Sometimes it's hard for him to keep quiet when he supposed to. But one time it was a good thing he spoke up when Owen, George, and Theodore were about to crash into Willy's Island when Hank told Lilly to be quiet on the episode All Quiet in the Big Harbor. He always forgets to tuck in his anchor, so the other tugs always remind him every now and then. He’s a cheeky tugboat who loves to play jokes, which sometimes get him into trouble, and is often misunderstanding new words or phrases which sound puzzling to him.

- Hank's personality seems to be based on Percy from Thomas & Friends.
