The towing bridle is hanging from the barge's bow as it eases past the center pinion section of the Harbor Draw bridge. The gears & rollers of the swing bridge's mechanism can be seen at it's base.

An electrical switch & link rod for the bridge's miter rails can be seen at the bottom left. This tells the operator if the railroad tracks are in alignment for safe passage of trains over the span.

Crewmen were stationed at the bow, to Port, & to Starboard, helping the Captain with his distances via radio. Ice & frozen conditions make this hard, & sometimes dangerous work.

Being a conventional tug & barge, the Rebecca Lynn is wired into the notch of her barge for navigation through confined waters like the Black Rock Canal.

Almost clear of the bridge, the Captain is now lining up for the entrance to the Black Rock Lock seen off in the distance ahead. After locking through, they headed down the Tonawanda Channel for the Marathon Dock.

Last December, as a pilot in the Welland Canal I joined the downbound Rueben Lasker at Lock 7. It was good to see my friend Dean Hobbs. The two "Soo boys" (from different sides of the river) had a great visit! We even found time to get the ship safely down to Port Weller where I left them (Dean's brother Dan was also aboard).
