Thanks to Richard for fotografing these unusual tugs. Notice the “towing bitt” abaft that looks like an oversize cup holder. Follow the aftward slant of the engine and you’ll have a sense where the prop might be located. Deck house configuration allows 360 degree visibility.



Towing line is fairly long…



…before getting to the stone boats filled with gravel that might come from one of Alice‘s many siblings.



You guess the city and river. I’ll repost on this in a few days with more tug fotos from this port. A clue is that although I’m sending from near the Winooski, the city is not on that river, and the river certainly doesn’t flow from the Green Mountains.
