Seabulk Towing is scheduled to christen the sister tugs Buccaneer and Gasparilla at its Tampa, Fla. facility
on Thursday, January 24. Sponsors are Lorraine Gontarski, to christen tug Buccaneer on behalf of her husband, Joe Gontarski, who is Senior Director and special assistant to the Executive Director for Port Manatee and has served both the Port of Tampa
and Port Manatee for over 30 years. The career of tug Gasparilla’s sponsor, Ms. Betty Provenzano, spans more than 35 years in support of those who steer the Port of Tampa. “We hope in some small way our recognition of these two Port employees will bring a lasting memory of the appreciation that the port community has for them,” said Victor Davis, Vice-President of Seabulk Towing, Tampa.
