Herbert C. Jackson in Buffalo - Brian W.
1-H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (67722 bytes)
 Jackson transiting the Watson Turning Basin and passing the Missile Cruiser USS Little Rock as the tug Washington leads her up the river.
2-H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (53480 bytes)
The tow abeam of the old Penn-Dixie (Burnette Trucking) dock on the Buffalo River. The tug is switching her lines around in preparation for the tough turn at Ohio St.
3--H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (162299 bytes)
The #1 Buffalo Boatnerd shows his approval as the Jackson lines up for the Ohio St. Bridge.
4--H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (78052 bytes)
The bow section is slowly being led to Port as the Jackson is headed deeper into the turn upriver towards the bridge.
5--H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (63449 bytes)
 Tight turn in the river when the ship completely fills the camera lens and there's no other angle to shoot photos from.
6--H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (103756 bytes)
How close the ships come to making contact with the dock walls near a turn as the Jackson barely fits.
7--H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (92563 bytes)
The stern has now swung clear of the wall and the ship is now fully into the turn. Engine engaged ahead, rudder hard over to Port, bow thruster and tug bringing the forward section around.
8--H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (101600 bytes)
The tug Washington is now backing full as she pulls the Jackson's bow to Port and away from the old Electric Elevator dock. The line up looks skewed to one side but it's the only way to get the length of the ship to make the turn and slide under the lift span at the same time.
9--H.C.-Jackson-5-21-11-BW.jpg (107606 bytes)
Jackson almost through the toughest part of the turn and about 3/4 of the way under the Ohio St. Bridge. From here it's about two more ship lengths up to the dock at the ADM Standard Elevator.
