9/4 - Karen Andrie/A-397 in Buffalo - Brian Wroblewski

Tug/barge Karen Andrie/A-397 coming around the turn in the Black Rock Canal above the Peace Bridge while outbound for Lake Erie.

The A-397 is shown empty and riding high in the water and this shot shows why the tug has an upper pilothouse for better visibility when pushing light.

Detail of the new articulated pin system has recently been installed in the Karen Andrie.

The tug tightly wired into the notch and pushing her barge as they pass the new Buffalo State boathouse area of the Black Rock Canal.

The pair heading through some tight marker buoys in the turn just below the reach that leads to the North Entrance and the lake.
