The Edward H. came under the Lift Bridge on Monday afternoon (above) ready to get to work as a new tug for hire in the Twin Ports. The former US Corp of Engineers tug Forney was purchased by Mike Ojard and his sons, Pat and Vince last year and renamed in honor of Mike’s father. They are open for business as Heritage Marine, accepting general towing jobs, particularly assisting salt water ships as they enter the harbor. They also anticipate breaking ice for boats needing assistance this winter. There will be a need since the shipping season usually continues until mid January. Photo taken on September 08, 2008
