Algoway back for 2nd trip

algoway2008Apr08_8815
Most boats that come to the Twin Ports start loading or unloading cargo within minutes of their arrival. They depart minutes after that work is complete. Sailors on those boats usually work 4 hours on and 4 hours off, three shifts a day. They will still stand those shifts whether in port or out in the lake. Still, the American Integrity will seem a little like a normal place of business today, arriving around 8 this morning and leaving about 9 hours later, giving them a good hour for lunch. Normal that is, except for the day of the week. Working on a boat is a 7 day a week job. The Algoway will be back today for the second time this year. It had not been to the Twin Ports for many years before its first trip this season, when it arrived on April 8th (above).
