Delaware lightship volunteers recall their nervous tow to shipyard

(LEWES, Del) — The volunteer crew aboard the lightship Overfalls said they were nervous as a Wilmington Tug Co. crew towed the vessel to a Virginia shipyard for repairs, the Cape Gazette newspaper of Lewes reported. The lightship listed 15 degrees, and it was hard to stay in bed. An apparent leak turned out to be only spray from the tugboat.
