1  Shipspotters all over the world / Shipping News and information / Re: Erie Shipbuilding Begins Work on: December 10, 2005, 07:42:42 pm
"The shipbuilder's first job will be to convert the Buckeye into an articulated tug barge, said John Chapman, vice president of operations and director of engineering for the company.

"He said the Buckeye's stern will be cut off and reconfigured so the 138-foot-long Olive L. Moore will fit into the barge. That will allow them to operate as a single unit, Chapman said."

I got back last week from a short cruise among the islands and inlets of British Columbia aboard a 135' landing craft. The ship delivers supplies to places that don't have good docks and also carries up to twelve passengers. We visited places the "real" cruise ships don't go near, and when we wanted to go ashore all we had to do was find a beach to run the ship onto. :-) It was wonderful! :-D I'll be posting some of the photos I took of vessels I encountered, but you can see a bunch of less ship-oriented shots here:

The outfit that runs the ship is:
