Moving fuel, Reinauer barge on McAllister hip, on a gray solstice afternoon.



Ever notice the masthead light banner midships high on a barge?




and chain towing bridle dragging through the water ready to be snagged when needed?




I’m surprised to learn this tug, Michaela McAllister, one I don’t recall having seen before, has homeport of Charleston. Will this crew spend solstice plus other holidays at sea?
