Tim Mckeil Works a Barge


The tug Tim Mckeil spent the weekend with a barge at Fairview Cove. They appear to be handling spools of some sort, which have been at the west end of the dock for several days now. Both were gone by last night, presumably to clear space for todays arrivals of Yantain Express and Tokyo Express.
