Erie Historical: Moving the JOSEPH H. THOMPSON JR. Into Drydock

On February 20, 2006, the JOSEPH H. THOMPSON JR. was moved into drydock by Lakeshore Towing tugs FLATTOP and DON HENRY. Below are photos of the move, as the THOMPSON JR. became the first vessel in nine years to enter the drydock.

FLATTOP takes the stern and pulls the tug into drydock.
