Scotty Sky first appeared here on this blog over three years ago.  Here’s a light Scotty Sky westbound

on the KVK, drawing a little more than my canoe, and

here she goes eastbound to an oil terminal up some relatively shallow creek

impossibly heavy laden.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.  Scotty Sky keeps tanker trucks off the roads and bridges and that’s good for us all.  Our roadways, bridges, and tunnels are OVER capacity sometimes, as defined by congestion.  Too bad we don’t ship MORE by water in the metro areas, things like food and consumer goods to waterfront bigbox stores.

Can anyone explain the origin of  Scotty and Patrick Sky names?
