The Independence

A beautiful morning to sit along the Cape Cod Canal at the Massachusetts maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts. The sketch includes the Independence Tug Boat in the foreground with the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge in the up position and the Bourne Bridge in the background. The Independence was built in 2008, by Derektor Shipyard of Bridgeport, Connecticut (hull # 86040) for Boston Towing and Transportation of Boston, Massachusetts.  The tug was based out of Gloucester, Massachusetts until 2012 when the tug assumed escort duties in and around Buzzard’s Bay, and the Cape Cod Canal in Massachusetts.
