Tug Delaware back in the water!

After a winter on the rail and lots of hard work, the tug Delaware was splashed back into the water on Friday.

CBMM"s Don MacLeod has an important job with every launch. He signals the marine railway operator on when to stop and go, and watches for the boat to stay stable

Lots of hands on lots of lines

The bow lines

a kuttke nire

And she's splashed!

Pulling the carriage back up

She's now dockside
