New York City Area - K-Sea

These pictures are of the Houma & Banda Sea working together shifting the cooling towers for a power plant in Astoria Queens NY. The barge they were moving was tandem towed by the Katharine Weeks to NY. Captain Bill Morrissey decided to go old school with the Houma and use gate lines to transit the Berkley Bridge.
