To Massena and Back Aboard the Roger Stahl

Under the command of Captain John Wellington the Gaelic Tugboat Company's flagship tug Roger Stahl departed Detroit for Massena, N.Y. November 9, 2001. Gaelic was been awarded the contract to return ten construction barges from an Environmental Dredging project at Massena to Detroit. 

Gaelic had delivered the same barges last fall and in spring 2001 to the project site. Chief engineer on board was the tug's namesake and semi retired fleet engineer Roger Stahl. The tug arrived in Massena on Sunday to pick up the first two barges.
