Note the upper wheelhouse in this photo from June 2017.

And then there’s this view from earlier this week.

There are different ways of varying draft. This new Erie canal tug, or Veritas in the Netherlands, or this one on the Ij, or CMT Pike, of course Bruce A.  all change height of eye their way.  Some jobs call for higher height of eye than others.  With the house also folded back, I’ve seen Dorothy J and Taurus, whose motive mechanism was profiled here.  Years ago, Janice Ann had her own way . . .

 

I’m just wondering if Foxy3 can run under that rail bridge with the upper wheelhouse folded and

a low barge like this.
