The Leonard M and Ironmaster

Next up is the tug Leonard M and her charge the barge Ironmaster.
 I'm pretty sure the Leonard M has appeared on this blog before.  What I'm not sure about is the barge Ironmaster.
 I'm not sure of the history of the barge, but based on the fact that I see "Merican Gulf VII", I assume she served somewhere else.
 You can see the letters a little clearer here.
 The tug's history is a little clearer.  She was built in 1986 by McTay Marine Ltd in Bromborough, England as the Point Halifax.  She was renamed the Leonard M in 2012.
She slowly makes her way down the river.
