Life aboard a McAllister tug - NY Times

For twenty six years I have watched the tugs and barges moving silently below my apartment overlooking the Hudson or North River.  I don't know where they're going or what they are pushing - except for the football field size arrays of blue stone barges.  Others are pretty obviously fuel carriers.  They've got a red flag in front to show combustibles. One of these days I'll somehow get aboard one.  Meanwhile I check out Tugster, who reports from his Kill van Kull perch on the Bayonne Bridge.  And occasionally we get a piece like this Times article.
