Why did the FLORETGRACHT request a tug escort?Haven't been in this harbor before?
Questionable steering control -- better safe than sorry.
Loved that you kept in all the back-and-forth conversations with the tugs, thanks Dennis. Got to see a rare event, tugs going all the way out to meet the ship--and one tug (Arkansas, I believe) even did the salute because the ship's whistle was frozen. Grammie Pat, Roberts, WI
