When I saw this unit arrive, I thought maybe I’d see one of the larger tugs painted in Kirby colors, like

Davis Sea pushing the barge and unlike Solomon Sea that still

bears K-Sea colors.

The Patriot has become DBL 83, pushed by Weddell Sea.

But I was wrong:  Tasman Sea looks as it has since it ceased being Ambassador.

Solomon Sea has worn this livery since

2007.

Unrelated and thanks to John Skelson . . .  Blue Angels were over the boros yesterday

prepping for Fleet Week . .  coming up soon.

Thanks, John.

Finally . . . I’ve failed to publicly praise tugboathunter for his site about Detroit River traffic.  Check it out  here.
