Wow! Even with this warm winter that water would have been deadly cold. Glad no one on the tug went into it.

It looked ready to sink...I wonder if it was also holed.

It was to be inspected for damage after this, but I haven't heard any updates

Re: Tug Stuck Beneath NH bridge

here's an update:

More than 2 weeks after nearly capsizing in the waters below the Memorial Bridge [in Portsmouth, New Hampshire], the tugboat that somehow struck the bridge is headed back to its home port.
