Scott Turecamo and New Hampshire




The US flag articulated tug/ barge combination of Scott Turecamo and New Hampshire rest quietly at anchor in Halifax awaiting a weather window to head south, after the tanker barge loaded at Imperial Oil .

The tug was built in 1998 by Moss Point Marine and is part of Moran's New York fleet. It is rated at 5,100 bhp.

The barge is double hull, 188,000 bbl capacity measuring 8,300 deadweight. It was built in 2008 by Bay Shipbuilding in Manitowoc, WI.
The same pair were in exactly the same place on January 26, 2011, for the same reason-waiting for a low pressure zone to pass, and for winds to die down. See http://tugfaxblogspotcom.blogspot.com/2011/01/us-tug-and-barge-wait-for-nicer-day.html

  1. Nice pictures Mac. You have a very good memory (regarding last year and us being up and weather bound). However, this time around we are anchored out waiting to go back into berth to finish loading (two ships had to come into Imperial Oil to load) Thursday afternoon before proceeding back to New York City. Halifax is a great City with fantastic people!

  2. I stand corrected Cap. Bon Voyage!

  3. OK Mac...Now we are weather bound! Fully loaded and waiting 24-36 hours for the Gale to pass before proceeding east to New York City.

  4. It's blowing 40 at Stapleton anchorage right now, Capt. Norm!
