Evidently, turning the barge around had something to do with working on the pilings at the shoreline? That was my guess anyway, as I left the boat the other morning. Not sure if it was removal or install (well, I suppose you would need something to drive them in with if it was an install…anybody see anything in the photo that looks like a pile driver? Or whatever they call it?). But it was cheerful to see the guys getting busy on a project, looking all tough and salty in their skullcaps and flannel shirts.
The little tug in the foreground is my dockmaster’s toy, Pine. I haven’t seen it go out yet, but apparently they’ve taken it out on overnights. It has a little forward berth, but apparently you have to watch your sleeves, as the engine (belts and all) is exposed and right next to everything. Cute little thing though.
