    I logged into Shutterfly (with my Facebook account), and I then clicked on the links for your photos, but none of them would work :(

    Looks like a highly specialized barge designed for offshore wind repair and service.

    Ah gez I should recognize that, we get a fuel barge just like that dang near every two weeks.

    I saw that arrangement in the form of a gravel barge docked in the Grand River harbor on Lake Erie. I was paddling my kayak. Thought it looked most peculiar, but figured out that had to be the same thing. The pusher and the barge each had their own powerplants running, all lit up. IIRC, the barge had a superstructure with a bridge, and maybe a crane. I know I took pictures of it but now I can't find them.

    The tug that brings fuel up has a giant tall crows nest. When it locks in to the barge it's quite a sight.

    The countersunk ladder looking things appear to be whatever bajan linked. They appear to have access for some reason or another, maybe cleaning based on the rail cuts.

    I imagine if you want crew swaps for any purpose...?
