3/1/08 - Raising the pilothouse on the tug Victory - Dick Lund
The pilothouse of the tug, Victory, which will eventually push the Reserve, was removed on Wednesday, February 26. On Thursday, an 8-foot extension was welded to the bottom of the structure, and by Friday, the new, raised pilothouse was re-attached to the tug.

A crane is alongside the Victory, ready to lift the pilothouse on Wednesday
