Mystery

This one looks to be ready for the scrap yard but it left the harbour it had a good turn of speed on it.

What I find a mystery is how those aft bullwalk 'bollards/gob-eye' move from amidships to the quarter ? They appear welded in place in both pictures. ? ? ?

looks like an american made tug, maybe from the 50's or 60's
i have noticed with many american tugs that if you look at the wheelhouse, well where the windows are, at the top where the roof is you can see that they have metal as in the shape of a sun visor that protrudes out. even if you look at the other tug in the background, well the exhaust stacks and wheel-house have a odd shape, which is common with older american tugs.
