It’s time to start a new series . . . with BBC Leda.

Will cargoes of wind turbine parts ever stop?  What will replace them as the next big thing?

This winter–or when I stay in place for a while–I might figure out how many of these Trillium class CSL boats I’ve seen.

 

I’ve never seen this many ships at the Prescott elevators.

Amstelborg, BBC Switzerland, and Federal Clyde were all there at once.

 

 

Algoscotia was upbound, as

was Canadian Empress.

What’s this . .  a catatug?  A joke of meowman or purr people?  But first, have another look at more Ocean blue tugs posted on this blog before, including the one once called Helen M. McAllister.  Click here and scroll.

I know there were Ocean vessels in Sorel and Trois Rivieres, which I missed.   Maybe I’ll see more next time, and I certainly want to see any and all in icebreaking activity some winter soon.   all photos here by Will Van Dorp.
