Wonder who pays for the tugs when they assist a ship in or out of port...the ship owners, docks, or the port authority?
Not sure, but, they don't get paid enough for that job
Ship owners pay for tug assist.
Explains why I saw the Joyce VanEnkevort unhook from the barge and help break it’s own ice to get into CN.
Hey Dennis, I found me in your video! I'm the one walking from the steps back over to the wall, close to the photographer who was set up by the gate...I then asked if he'd ever had pix posted on duluthharborcam, and when he said yes, I asked and found out it was your friend Paul Scinocca!! I was in town this past weekend cuz my grandson was in a hockey tournament; I had stopped at the Thompson Overlook on the way out of town (after 3pm) and saw a big boat leaving the ore docks, so I came back to Canal Park to watch. Paul said he had heard the Integrity call for the tugs well before that, so he still had plenty of time to go over to Superior; he showed me his pix of the Assiniboine and the Speer. He's really a nice guy, sez he takes pix for the fun of it--I told him I've got one of his pix you posted on this site as wallpaper, he said go ahead, that's what they're for. :) Grammie Pat, West St. Paul, MN
Paul is a great guy, and exceptional Photographer. I don't know him personally but I talk to him pretty much on a daily basis. Hope to meet him if I ever get the chance to make the trip to Duluth
Also, the tug who was breaking ice closest to the bridge in the video is the Arkansas, don't know the name of the other one, she was too far away and I didn't have binoculars. Grammie Pat
