Over a dozen posts already have followed Urger, the most recent last November.  I caught up with the old fishing tug in Lyons this week, not high and dry but low and frosted, down at the Lock 28A drydock.  And I mean down,

hibernating below high-water level

down in the dry dock, behind the lock about 300 miles from where Urger spent Labor Day (see 6th foto).

I’ve a whole new understanding of Urger’s stability, now that I’ve seen her deep draft.
