Barney Turecamo seems so self-contained,

so huge, especially

when compared with James Turecamo.  Why IS James following so closely?

Check it out . . . James assists on the turn to port just past Erikoussa.

Considering it that way, James too is equally self-contained and exactly sized for what it needs to do, today as well as almost 40 years ago.  Built at Matton Shipyard for the canals in 1969, the crews back when James (1700 hp) came off the ways could hardly have imagined assist jobs for fleet fellows like Barney (5100 hp) pushing barge Georgia (110,000 barrels).  By the way, tanker Mary Whalen, built in 1938, had 8000 barrel capacity.
