Around 2 pm, John P. Brown leaves the KVK for the northwest, and a

bit later, Sisler (T-AKR 311) heads into port with a gaggle of McAllister tugs assisting.

Then I noticed Brown had an odd thin vessel on the hip,

one that I couldn’t figure out until

I noticed how they measured up, and then it

dawned on me:  Sisler goes into drydock and this closes the dock off!

Brown is floating the door!  I wanted to see the rest of the process, but by now the

golden hour had arrived and my

flash would be woefully inadequate!
