Well, let me be the first to admit that I was apparently wrong…
I wonder if they got the plank owners discount on the current $3.9 million fee to skip the line.
That’s one benefit of being a US government vessel.
Meh. I was always told a “ship” (Named Cutter) was 65’ plus. All the “Boats” under 65’ were numbered and didnt have a name. I think the 65’ tugs are the smallest named USCG asset…With the exception of 3 or 4 oddball motor lifeboats in the NW.
ILWU was most likely involved just like when they were protesting the Zim ships a few years back
