Sometimes the fotos just matter as fotos, making this a variation on what I did this once last summer with ships. The first foto below is thanks to Mike Lesser taken in “tugboat alley” aka KVK. I like it when kindred spirits send in fotos.
It looks like Franklin and Nicole Leigh, but I can’t make out the Moran.
Here, sporting a nice brace of ladders, Miriam Moran heads for Newark Bay on the Arthur Kill.
Rounding out this post, a classic but unidentified tug (registered in Verplanck, NY) northbound approaching the GW Bridge. Can anyone identify?
