A few shots of the Snowbirds and crew from the 443 Maritime #Helicopter Squadron in front of the @RCAF_ARC retro-painted CH-124 #SeaKing at the Great Lakes International Airshow. This Sea King is due to retire later this year.

Carl ...

On July 2 I could see your pictures in this folder.

Today they are gone again.

Are you gaslighting me?

I am losing what few marbles I have left.

all best

Gents,

This one is bugging me.

Does anybody know what type and class of boat this is?

It looks like the US Navy, but it could be the Marines. Is it a work boat or some sort of harbour tug? Or is a small ferry?

I can't find any other picture of it using all of the above ideas as search terms? Oh, I found the picture in an article about the US military in Korea, IIRC.

Thanks
John

Looks like a small barge or lighter.

It would work as a small ferry, except the small ferries that I've been on have ramps for driving on and off.

Oh, this one isn't all that big:

Most excellent, many thanks!

"The INLS is made up of pontoon sections a.k.a. platforms. Different mixes of pontoon sections are used to make up different assemblies. The Causeway Ferry is used as a lighter for vehicles and large cargo from ship to shore, and has a top speed of 12 knots compared to 4.5 knots for its predecessor. There are 12 modules for 4 ferries, in a 4×3 arrangement where each ferry assembly comes with a Power section (with engine and controls), an Intermediate section, and a Beach section (with ramp). It takes less than 2 hours to assemble the causeway ferry at sea."
