Shannon - Lake St. Clair - June 28, 2000
Gaelic's Tug Shannon took part in the fund-raising cruise of the Liberty Ship John H. Brown. The tug was built and launched as Tug YTB 388 (USS Connewango) for the U.S. Navy so Gaelic applied her original name to her bow and stack to commemorate the event. The photo was taken from the John H. Brown during the cruise.
