These two boats have a lot in common:  built a year apart in the same shipyard and more.

Without being aboard, I’d say they were products of the same designed and may appear to be twins, 

A surprising feature they share is the telescoping upper wheelhouse that

allows visibility when needed.  

I say they appear to be twins, but if the tale of the tape is correct, Marjorie is about five feet longer, two feet skinnier, and a hundred horses more powerful.  

Both were originally Exxon tugboats until the Exxon brand was removed from the boats after a certain large tanker had an unfortunate encounter with Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound. 

That flexibility was no doubt a selling point for the design.

“Scarlet Begonias” has a line “the sky was yellow but the sun was blue…”  Well, you may have noticed the sun this morning here was pink and bluish;  the sky was a uniform gray, and 

that made the water gray as well.  Thank the Canadians . . . well, the smoke from wildfires in western Canada.

 

 

See the WTC1?

 

All photos this morning, WVD.
