Can you make sense of this?  Without a zoom, I was not sure what I was looking at.

 

I’d seen Miss Ila slowly making her way up the coast.  “Slowly” usually means there’s a substantial tow,

 

and in fact there was.

She rounded up off the east side of Shooters Island, which has some interesting history here. I did a blog post about Shooters here with photos showing the Townsend-Downey shipbuilding operation at its heyday. 

Round up took the “way” off the barges, and

as the crane boom was raised, lines were cast off

and Miss Ila took one barge alongside while

Vicki M came from shore somewhere and made fast to the crane barge.

All photos, WVD.
