1/6 - Reserve tow from Sturgeon Bay - Scott Tomlinson

Berth #15 falls astern as the Reserve Departs BayShip

Leaving BayShip we head out to Green Bay

Jimmy L. breaks a track in the distance as the William C. Selvick tows the Reserve.

Stopped in the ice, one of several times over the course of the trip.

Susan L. pushing in the notch.

When not engaged in ice breaking the Jimmy L. would also push on the stern.

Lots of ice to contend with out in the bay.

The Jimmy L. makes a pass down the Reserve's starboard side. Watchman Steve Haverty can be seen on deck.

We did find some areas of open water.

We met the Steamer John G. Munson out in the bay.

The hard working Jimmy L. continues to break us a track.

The tow continued into the night, but my photos did not.
