Tugboats collide in the 20th annual Great North River Tugboat Race

Taking a quick breather between quarter-end reports right now - had to share this, which was posted on the Working Waterfront Committee Facebook page by David Silver, who turns out to be the DJ Silver who'd left the info on the Little Toot in the comments on my Post Parade post. This took my home computer a while to load last night, but it was totally worth the wait, it's excellent. Pilothouse & VHF chatter are half the fun.

BTW I think everyone was fine, there was never any indication at the finish line that anything was wrong & in fact watching this last night was the first I'd heard about any mishap. Tough boats, tough people, think they just bounced off each other and kept right on going!
