J.F.Whalen - part 3

McNally's crew quickly assembled the remaining components and had the J.F.Whalen all back together by Wednesday.
With push knees in place, the tug doesn't look quite as attractive, but I am sure they will save a lot of wear and tear when handling mud scows.

Aside from the buckets over the exhaust pipes to keep the rain out, the tug is now fully equipped and ready to run.

At the ceremony next week, the tug will be named for John Whalen, a longtime employee of McNally and Beaver Marine before that, who retired last year.
