After many months of hard work, it appears that the small tug Belle D is having some work done on its nose. Forward bulwarks get knocked about quite a bit while handling barges, and it is likely that repairs were needed.
The tug was called out for some work in Bedford Basin over the weekend, and presented an odd appearance with a gap up forward.
Recent work for the tug included moving two restored cannons from pier 9 to Macnab's Island aboard the barge Halifax Carrier. The barge is owned by RMI Marine, who also operate the tug.
