It was an amazing day, with so much that happened. Today I'm going to feature pictures of the Fournier Tractor, familiar to many as the big red tugboat berthed beside the Belfast City dock.
Today it was open for tours. To get aboard, I needed to clamber over the huge tires on the sides. More nerve-wracking than it looks, because if your foot slips it's a long way to the dock or the water.
A few picture from onboard. Crews Quarters:
A peak at the engine room:carting the last pieces of an oil refinery to Texas. And this afternoon I got to watch it do many other tricks:
Spinning in a circle (Note the folks on the docks are holding on so the wake won't knock them over):
It was an awesome display!
