Bagotville off for the Strait

The tug Bagotville sailed this morning towing the mud scow Pitts No.1 It was a blustery and cold morning, but nothing daunted, the tug was off for Port Hawksbury. Following  my post last weekend I have been on guard for a photo of the tug in McNally colours.
The bottom dumping scow, a veteran of the old C.A.Pitts Construction's marine division, taken over by McNally around 1990, was built in 1962 by Collingwood Shipbuilding. Not visible from these pictures, but partly seeable in last weekends post, the scow is loaded with buoys, anchors, rails and other gear used by McNally when building the cribs for the pier 9C extension last year.With no further work for McNally in Halifax, the equipment is going back to McNally's Point Tupper base.
