Mary M. Coppedge at Work

The Mary M. Coppedge is one of Portsmouth’s Moran Towing tugboats.  On Tuesday afternoon, the tugboat kept the Cynthia Pioneer in place as it tied up to the Granite State Minerals dock.  As I mentioned last week, Portsmouth’s Working Waterfront is a mesmerizing place to watch.  The Cynthia Pioneer arrived to unload some sand, and the reds of the tug looked great against the greyed out fall skies.  More colorful images to follow later this week.

Today I’ve also launched a new header at the site, featuring a single tug docked and waiting, while the Martingale Wharf gets underway on its waterside.  The Memorial Bridge anchors the Bow Street waterfront buildings to the Kittery shore.  Hope you like – planning to mix this up more regularly going forward.
