A few days after they departed NYC, Nelson Brace caught this photo of the two traversing the Cape Cod Canal.
On December 19, Michel Gosselin caught these photos of the two unbound from Lock 2 of the Welland Canal, many cold blustery, and icy days later.
Many thanks to Nelson and Michel for use of these photos. Hats off to the crew . . . better yet, given that ice, keep your hats on.
Below is the screenshot of the tow arriving in Muskegon late Christmas Eve.
It would be nice to see some of the photos crew might have taken as they crossed the stormy Gulf of Saint Lawrence and fought their way across Lake Ontario with strong winds out of the NW. And I’m looking forward to seeing them in Port City Tug colors.
So Katie G and Colleen McAllister danced their way east to get north and way west past the dancing (or leaning) towers of the East River this morning.
Notice you can still see the original Libby Black name in the raised metal of Katie G McAllister, soon to be named something else?
Here’s a previous post I did featuring Katie G. remaking a tow at the Battery.
I’m guessing this voyage will take about three weeks?
Godspeed, and beat the ice!
