Winter boats: Tug tows container ship by #GloucesterMA coast to…which port?

A horizon vista on an early gray December morning, a challenge for the naked eye with just a phone camera and binoculars. In the photo, the tugboat is approaching the direction of Thacher Island. I couldn’t identify the Tugboat and container ship (if that’s what it was); maybe a GMG reader will help.

  1. Tug and barge shuttle shipping containers between Halifax and Boston. Several of the big container ships call at Halifax but not Boston. So they offload the Boston bound containers at Halifax.

    1. Thanks, Paul! This is great and helpful. So some –like this one– are EMPTY barges (not disabled ship) heading back to Halifax, and filled when Boston bound.
