It was with my dad, and another tugboater name Cliff Thompson, no relation I suppose. He was a good friend of dads and of the Shrewsburys. Seattle to Steilacoom and back. This was mid to late 60's I think.

Here's a 2012 pic of the BEE anchored off Wrangell. More recently, saw her in Heritage Harbor under cover and under major reconstruction - don't know if she will survive the refit.
