View South West off the pier with Buffalo Outer Harbor to the right.

Crew taking in the lines to allow the Lynn to back away from her barge.

The tug is slowly coming out of the notch with the barge secured to the wall.

The captain is at the control stand above the stern towing winch and steering the boat while crewman head forward to grab the barge's towing gear.

Rebecca Lynn sliding alongside her barge A-397 to allow the crew men to hook up her stern tow line to the bridle near the barge's Starboard bow.

Detail of the A-397's shallow notch. You can clearly see the cut outs for crew men to climb from the nose of the tug up onto the barge when she's pushing from back here.

The tug along side the barge while crew members attach her towing gear.

The Rebecca Lynn is all hooked up and starting to make a turn towards the North Entrance of the Outer Harbor

The barge is coming away from the Port Terminal Pier and beginning to trail the tug as the tow line takes up slack.

The tug turning her barge as the pair start out on a dark, frigid, December morning of 20 degrees and light snow flurries

The barge's skegs have kept her trailing nicely behind the tug and the pair straighten out on their way to the lake via the North Entrance Channel.
