Crew change in the morning fog

I was looking in my archives for something and I found this.

Not quite three years ago I posted posted a version that was cropped more tightly, but for this one all I cropped out was some river at the bottom. That took it down from a 4:3 to a 3:2. This boat was the M/V City of Pittsburgh. It was so close to the shore that I could smell it.

The bridge in the background is the Robert C. Byrd Bridge, known locally as the Sixth Street Bridge.

Six on, six off criticized

Here is an accident investigation report critical of the maritime industry's traditional work schedule of six hours on and six hours off.

I'm not competent to pass judgment, so I'll just pass it along.
