A connection between the vessels below other than that I took all the fotos in the past two weeks . . . eludes me for now, but you might know of a link, several even, beyond the obvious.    Brian Nicholas pushes scrap over to Claremont moving past the gray Penn No 6.

Since pairs has emerged as a unifier here, I’ll point out that Liberty Service anchors off the Palisades with its mated barge, but from this angle, all I know is that barge carries New Orleans registry, but then again, that’s true of all Hornbeck equipment, I think.

The outatowner Irish Sea hangs for now with DBL134 over at Constable Hook aka Con Hook.

Donjon, Penn Maritime, Miller, Hornbeck, Moran, K-Sea . . . a connection that presents itself is that they all operate in sixth boro waters, accessible to Atlantic Basin, where PortSide New York is poised to create a maritime hub.  This will increase access to the retired oil tanker Mary Whalen and create programs about the waterfront on the waterfront.  This space will host workboats like the ones above  as well as historic, government, excursion, and charter vessels.

Buy tickets here and now for PortSide NewYork’s fundraiser from 6pm til 9 pm this Saturday night  at the Brooklyn Lyceum. . .  or bid on line for the fabulous auction items (like a catered dinner at a private waterfront location with Bowsprite and me)  on eBay.
