Gallery 1  TODD DANOS, BW PANTHER, DUBAI HORIZON
TODD DANOS working on his configuration after blowing by the mouth of the canal. He came up the river with barges on the hip on both sides of tug. I have to say the tide and wind was causing him grief.
After 3 hours of configuring inside the canal westbound.
Coming around the latest turn to the St Georges bridge the rig wanted to go straight. Had to "lockup the brakes", made a lot of smoke.
Getting back to speed  westbound.
