The tugboat Lina has returned and has been tied to the far side of the barge,
where it is being used as an  access  platform  for a  welder  working on one of
the  strut  legs.  This photograph  shows  a shower  of incandescent  sparks  from
his oxygen-acetylene  cutting  torch.  The barge has been held in this fixed position
for several hours, against the strong upstream tidal current, by the three extended
strut  legs.   The  strut  legs  are  now  near  their  full  extension  downward,
with  barely  one  metre  (three  feet)  of  available  travel  remaining.
The rising water has another hour before it reaches high tide.
