    That’s a helluva stairway! Not something you’ll see in most boatyards.

    In the stern shot, I noticed the fairly large nitrogen gas cylinder. Many years ago, I had a quite nice steel motorsailer as a dock neighbor. The motorsailer had large hollow steel rub-rails and I learned that they were nitrogen gas filled to inhibit rust. Maybe the DUNLOP has nitrogen filled rudders?

    It’s been years since reading everything by Farley Mowat I could get my hands on. Maybe it’s time to revisit.

    DELTA DEANNA? Here she is:

    Built in 1999, by Marco Shipbuilding of Seattle, Washington as the DELTA DEANNA for Bay and Delta Marine Services Incorporated of San Francisco, California.

    In 2009, the DD was chartered by the Signet Maritime Corporation of Houston, Texas. Where she was renamed as SIGNET ENTERPRISE.

    On August 26th, 2017 due to winds and currents caused by the passage of Hurricane Harvey, while attempting to hold an oil rig in position, the tug collided with a nearby oil rig and partially sank near Port Aransas, Texas. She was eventually raised, and salvaged.

    In 2019, the tug was acquired by the Coos Bay Towboat Company of Coos Bay, Oregon. Where she was renamed CYGNET. That tug gets around!
