Photographer Dave Roels was in glory at Allied Shipbuilders earlier last month. With so many projects on the go, he was like a kid in a candy store with all of the opportunities to highlight work on tugs and barges in the North Vancouver yard. The following photos provide a great overview of work underway. All photos are copyrighted to Dave Roels (www.daveroels.com) and require permission for reprint.
