Call out to TBW Mustang Sally...
« on: July 28, 2008, 04:52:17 am »

An old LCI was on display at the Portland Maritime Heritage Festival this weekend.
It has to be towed the event as there are no engines on board at this time.
However their Tug boat captain was injured in a log rolling competition and
could not climb to the wheel house of his tug...

I rushed to offer an assist, but lacked the power to move it from the dock.
I think TBW has the only tugs that could have done this job.

That is what I call confidence !  Maybe a couple of degrees of up on the front dive planes when running WOT Umi ? O0  Wonder if the guy thumbing a lift from the pushboat got his ride ::) Thanks for pics, looks like it was a great event.
