Callaway home for the winter

Two Heritage Marine tugs helped the Cason J. Callaway tie up at the Port Terminal for the winter this morning (January 15, 2014). Here the Helen H. is clearing ice along the dock. I took the picture from the Nels J., also assisting the Callaway. Earlier (below), Heritage Tug owner Mike Ojard (in the boat, works with Bob Hom, on shore, as they were getting the tug off their dock in Superior.
Below, Captain Mike Ojard runs the Helen H. along the edge of the dock, clearing ice so the Callaway can tie up close to the dock.
The goal is to get the Callaway as close to the dock as possible. Above, the Helen H. does her part while we (the Nels J.) do the same at the bow of the Callaway.
