is a 45-year-old hottie. Just look at the heat shimmer enveloping her.
She first appeared here in 2007. I’ve also referred to her “bucket fenders” aka training wheels here.
This may be repetitive, but Ellen was built in 1966 and rebuilt in 2007.
When watching assist tugs like Ellen, it’s hard for me to avoid anthropomorphizing. Ellen strikes me as a hunter who always returns with her quarry.
Note the position of her bucket fenders in relation to the flare of the ship’s bow.
If it is about hunter and prey, these Sea-Land Racer crew seem not displeased to be captured by the likes of Ellen. I’m guess Racer carries an all-US crew.
