Stern Structure Transition: At the stern, the system of framing continues towards the extreme end of the tug, but the stanchions stop and are replaced by a built-up timber stern waist that is shaped to form the eliptical stern bulwark atop the rim timber. The pattern for the side rim timber can be seen here, as can the aft-most stanchions.

Foredeck Detail: A view of the foredeck structure, showing the deck beams and filler pieces as well as the breasthook built atop the shelf system. The beams and fillers will take the loads placed on the tug's foredeck by the forward H-bitt. A new steel backing plate will be installed below the beams and fillers and secured to the H-bitt with large bolts.

Installing Forefoot Guard: A shipwright is hammering large drifts through the heavy steel guard into the forefoot keel structure. The piece was fabricated at the yard, bent, bored with countersunk holes, painted, and installed using chain falls and a crane.
