Tiny Tug

In my postcard collection I actually have a card with a tug boat pulling an old fishing schooner. It's not as big as the one in the Sepia Saturday prompt nor is the ship that is being pulled. But it is a great match.

The card shows the two vessels entering the mouth of the Merrimack River in Massachusetts. Although it looks placid here the mouth is infamous for dangerous currents and sandbars. It's difficult enough to navigate in a powered vessel let alone a sailing vessel.
