Another visitor to the dock yesterday. The tug Molly M I took on fuel (lots) and water, she is on her way back to Hamilton Ont. from Iqaluit. The barge she is accompanying had lots of equipment and a large mobile crane on board, all this was to necessitate the unloading of what they took up. Stuff like large mats that are laid down on the mud at low tide, and other gear. Molly M has a new color scheme and most likely a new owner, she sure must have had an interesting life.

Funny that tugs and barges don't garner the same level of interest that 140 feet multimillion dollar pleasure boats do. 

The weekly arrival of the Northern Ranger was delayed an hour, she broke down back in Natuashish and she limped into town (by what looks to me like) one engine.

When Google gets done with Cambridge Bay we want the same done here. 

The turbot survey people are now in Hebron Fiord, and the outpost Magazine people are still eating lotuses up in the Torngat Park, hoping for a helicopter ride but if weather is like here don't think so.
