scenes from the sixth boro and gallivants beyond
May 14, 2008 in New York harbor, photos
Another close-up of the mystery tug . . .
Thanks to Harold E. Turtell, who suggests it might be a transformed Miss Yvette (his foto) with “after house” removed and some adjustments of paint . . .
Here’s the entire tow . . .
and sure enough, as some of you suggested, the name of this construction company, Kiewit, appears at the tip of the crane . . .
Reflections of an American hostage in Iraq, 20 years later.
My imaginings and bowsprite's renderings of Henry Hudson's trip through the harbor 400 years ago.

Can’t be MISS YVETTE as she is now owned by MAT Marine in Bourne, MA. The new owner, Mike Hallam, has repainted her superstructure blue and white.

Nope……good thought tho. Isn’t there a directory of tugs somewhere that you can check?

My son and I saw Miss Yvette everyday this winter in Falmouth Harbor (MA). My little guy is 100% positive this is not her.

hello, my name is trevor. I am the deckhand on the so called “mystery tug”
originally the tug was the Jillean G from Michigan. It was bought by a joint venture of Kiewit and Weeks Marine, and is now known as the F. Dawson. We are located at the Harlem River and we are part of the Willis Ave. Bridge construction job. Peace and keep on tuggn’

from deckhand trevor on the F. Dawson, Willis Ave. The new willis ave bridge will be done approx. 2 or 3 years, then we will start to dismantle the old bridge and piers. Long time to go. Also because we are on a construction job, we only work monday to friday, 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. And FYI, our company Kiewit, will also be involved with the Tappan Zee bridge project. 10 year job and it will cost approx 16 billion dollars, so the mighty Dawson will be in that neck of the woods very soon.
