Very interesting.  I was able to watch it on a smart tv, no problem.  Pity though that there is no footage of the tow rounding the Cape - that could have been interesting.

Wonderful video. Thank you for the link. It was interesting to watch and to see that the actual connections and techniques have not changed in 50 years. Bigger tugs, more power and sophistication, but a tow is a tow.
