Mr. Henry works for Barry Graham Oil Services.
Thor is one large tractor tug.
I’m not sure what vessel that is in the foreground, but
whereas these rigs have not yet been promoted–or demoted–to museum service.
One of these years, i’ll have to gallivant this way. Many thanks to the secret salts.
Do you recognize this ship?
Well, actually, Petroleum Producer is a barge, not a ship. And Galveston is a 12,000 hp tug.
And in port she needs assistance . . . here Freddy K Miller (I think . . . on starboard) and Pegasus.
This generation of ATB units replaces ITBs that were still in the sixth boro when tugster started to pay attention back in 2006. Back then, there was a fleet of ITBs, now waiting the scrapyard. Click here and here for closeups I did of one of them, ITB Philadelphia, last known to be laid up in Great Bitter Lake in Egypt. Anyone have followup news?
The last time I caught closeups of Petroleum Producer and Galveston it was here (scroll through) in the Cape Fear River over two years ago.
