And the container ships are bursting at the seams. This time of the year they are piled high with containers loaded with our holiday presents and needs. An unusual sight was Moran and McAllister tugs working together on the same ships, something you do not see every day.

Kirby’s Ross Sea had a Pink Breast Cancer ribbon painted on her tower; I will be looking out to see if any more of their tugs follow suit.
