August 13, 2015
Nine LNVTs, 6 37s, 1 41, and 2 49s, convened in Port Orchard, WA to begin the 2015 West Coast Rendezvous.
The event was organized by Mike Dunn, 41LNVT2. For his diligence, he was presented with an autographed photo of a grateful Admiral Nelson.
Photo Caption: The Admiral, obviously happy that his quill pen held out while signing the photo.
Meanwhile, back at the dock, the bears aboard the Shann's tug kept watch over the fleet. Note bear wearing cap in the far left lower portion of the pilothouse window.
Sunday, August 15: the tugs enjoyed a little formation cruising.
Former aerial formation photographer Tom Blackwood, aka Captain of Thistle Dew, came out of retirement, applied his aerial expertise to aqueous environs and directed the tugs as they tiptoed across the waters to Poulsbo.
Tom's wife Janis, aka Charlie, provided support.
Once tied up at the dock in Poulsbo, Bicki Howell checked for proper lineup.
And the trusty tugs took a break and settled in for the night.
