Here’s another Phillip T. Feeney post from the archives.

Now let’s start with a conventional looking 35-year-old tugboat repowered in 2001 with 4000 horsepower of EMDs.

Same Marjorie, house up, and

down and

up

and down and

here you can see one reason for this telescoping.

What I can’t tell you is how long it takes to ascend from fully down to peak.  20 seconds?

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who will be on the road for the next few days and is currently too far from water for his own comfort;  this post was written just before getting kidnapped to assist the old elf, who keeps me “on assignment” in the highlands and piedmont. Maybe soon I’ll put up some highland fotos.

On an unrelated and serious note, it saddens me to hear of the accident aboard Turecamo Girls.  Here’s a foto I took of the boat some time back.
