Two Trawlers

Saw two trawlers accompanying each other East Bound on the ICW passing to port of a tug that had his barge backward tied. Passed Lost Key and NAS Pensacola about 1:45 pm 27 Dec.
Are the Captains and Crews members here?

Well it wasn't me! Maybe late February or early March if everyone stays healthy.
What do you mean by "a tug with his barge backward tied" I haven't heard that before?
If I do get over that way in the spring I'll give you a shout.

Cool. Gimme a yell.

The tug had his barge tied up from the bow of the barge to the tug and the flat dead stern of the barge was pushing into the way. Looked a ship in Reverse.

Kulas,
It's certainly doable just not very hydro dynamic. The seas were calm and that may have allowed for it. Looked like if would be interesting in a sea bowing at 90 degrees instead of 30-40.
