Barging in


Marc Lutz/Wrangell Sentinel

The Rainforest Islander greets the monthly fuel barge on April 25 in Zimovia Strait. Eric Yancey, captain of the Islander, was using his vessel to act as the bow thruster for the tugboat Dale R. Lindsay and Petro Marine's barge. Since there is limited space in the harbor and certain safety and other requirements, Yancey is on hand to make sure the barge can enter and exit Reliance Harbor without incident. The Islander helps move the barge forward and backward as needed, Yancey said. "I take orders from the tug captain."
