I think he means the Jersey that New Jersey is named after. As in Jersey, Channel Isles, sort of UK/ (it isn't actually part of the UK, it is owned by the Queen and has a different status).

But in any case, have a great time, Tractorman. Jersey is a fine place for a holiday. I sometimes take the boat over there and we always have a good time.  :thumbs:

Well here we simply refer to NEW Jersey (where I live) as Jersey...so in my mind he was not clear ::)

Some shipping images from my trip

Some shipping images from my trip, fairly restricted of what I could do due to I couldn't go to the harbour its self and on the ferry its kinda hard..






























History of the sailing going to Guernsey, the squiggly line.



Hope you enjoy, I have more of some things if you want them and ask questions if you like!

The fifth picture clearly isn't a tug.

Where do you think the towing cable goes when the ship turns?
Nowhere, biceaus it will get stuck at those mooring points on the stern.

So it can't be a tug, unless if a retard designed it. ;)
