Many thanks to Fran Van Staalduinen for snapping these fotos, in a snow storm.  Given the foreground, any guesses on the diameter of the props?  identity of the tugboat?

Would you believe more than  12′ each?  They will be spun by 16,320 hp.  Any guesses on their identity?

Not yet launched, it’s Crowley’s Liberty, second in a series of three tugs.  Fran took these fotos through the fence in Anacortes, WA, at  Dakota Creek Industries.

Many thanks to John and Fran Van Staalduinen, whom I’ve known almost all my life.

Harold Tartell asked that I add the following:  “Sister Tug LEGACY Is Out And In Service. The Second Tug In This Series Of Three LEGEND, Is Over 90 Percent Complete, And Is Due Out Very Soon.”  Click here, here, here, and here for more info on the Legacy-class Crowley tugs.”

Thanks, Harold.
