All Saturn rockets were so large they were delivered by barge to the launch site at Cape Kennedy.  The Tug Margaret and her crew of Merchant Marines started the voyage to the moon. She delivered the Saturn rocket used by the Apollo 11 crew, stage by stage, that brought the first men to the moon.  And now you know it was a tugboat Captain and crew who launched the first voyage to the moon.
