Thanks to a friend for passing along these photos, which follow on Other Peoples Photos and Chancellor 2 from several years ago.  File this under . . . not many machines live forever or even for a century.  In the photo below, you almost get the sense that an 85-year-old tugboat is about to get some much needed TLC aka spa treatment, but

as seen from the other side, 

it looks like strike 3 for keeping her intact.  She’s been opened up, prepped as an organ donor, I hope.

Thanks for these photos . . . MK.  This is not the ending I expected after the auction.

Related only in concept, organ donation info can be found here

A one-year-older “shipyard sister” of Chancellor –currently called Patriotic–can be seen here.  Does anyone have recent photos of Patriotic?
