The New Arctic Tug "MICHELE FOSS"
is towing the lead section of the
LAND TYPE OIL PLATFORM
to Sakhalin Island, Russia
0500 hrs. May 11, 2016 In the ISLAND PASSAGE, Michele Foss crossed the path of the Ferry Run between Horseshoe
Bay and Departure Bay, Nanaiho. My son and I took this ferry to go Whale Watching. 0400 hrs. May 12, 2016 Michele Foss has just entered Queen Charlotte Sound. Tug Montana is in Bellingham???
The barge in tow was moved from Henry Island Bellingham. 0800 hrs. May 13, 2016 Michele Foss at this time was 17 hours and 44 min. out of contact. Montana still moored.
Montana rejoined the tow at 1500 hrs. this day at the Canadian Border. 0600 hrs. May 14, 2016 Montana at Duncan Bay on Discovery Passage, British Columbia Canada.
After passing through Johnstone Strait I have posted three videos on areas encountered. 0600 hrs. May 15, 2016 Montana seems to now be on a different course than Michele Foss. Time will tell.
It took 11 hours to Replenish the two tugs at Port Angeles
But back at Henry Island, tug Montana required assistance from
another Foss tug, Garth Foss.
At 1500 hrs. Garth Foss towed the barge to Bellingham, WA.
After securing her tow line, Montana traveled to Bellingham.
