Jarrett M a few hours before leaving for Placentia Bay, Newfoundland.  One of Heddle Marine's floating drydocks in the background.

4-trill-10-13-11-pb.jpg (95189 bytes)
 Trillium, Toronto's 101 year old ferry in drydock.  At the left end of her is the tug Florence M.
5-flor-10-13-11-pb.jpg (105299 bytes)
Florence M going back into the water after a refit.  Twin screw, twin props and bilge keels.
6-flor-10-13-11-pb.jpg (108116 bytes)
To float the Florence M one end of the drydock was sunk.  The end with the Trillium on it only got damp and the Trillium did not float.
7-shackle-10-13-11-pb.jpg (135452 bytes)
An anchor cable joining shackle with a foot for scaling.  This one is open.  The pin goes through the hole at the top and along the groove to hold the parts together.  In theory, you can drive out the pin and open the shackle whenever needed.  In my experience it always takes an oxy-acetylene torch to cut the darn things open.
