Tamarack is back

 1. Atlantic Tamarack comes alongside at pier 9.

The tug workboat Atlantic Tamarack arrived last weekend with the hopper scow HD7. Fleet mate Swellmaster also brought in the dredge Cranemaster, but returned to Saint John. All will be working at pier 6 on a major dredging and pier construction project for Halifax Shipyard.
Tamarack has become the dredge tender of choice for Harbour Development, although the old T-Boat Irving Chestnut is also in port. 
2. Irving Chestnut sits alongside as crews cut down the derrick scow Channelmaster at pier 9.

  1. Tamarack is a great tug. And quite comfortable for a small crew.
    ATL has been using the Irving Hazelnut in Saint John for Canaport hose tug duty. They had a third, Walnut, at one time. She might still be ashore above the Reversing Falls.
