For info on where the canal is, see this post from last year.  The distant red tug you see in that link is the 1907 Pegasus recently in drydock but now getting springtime service.  I visited this area of Jersey City and posted fotos a year ago here.

So yesterday seemed ripe for a revisit–as well as an ideal time to help with the springtime chores on Pegasus.  Here, from near to far are Little G, Sandy G, Katherine G (featured here), Pegasus, and a bit of Patriotic.

In the same order, this shows a closer view of Little G, and

as seen from Pegasus,  this view of Patriotic as

well as this one.

Shooting back toward the east, a classic 43-footer,  Linda G, and

Annie G II  (whom I’d imagine as Littlest G) .  That’s the lower Manhattan skyline in the background, exactly the location from which I shot the first foto in the first link of this post.

Here’s Cape Race, featured here, still on the south side of the Canal.

Some details on these:

Sandy G (1962), Katherine G (1981), Patriotic (1937, a Bushey formerly known as Rainbow), Linda G (1943), and Annie G II (2000).  Cape Race is Quebec-built, 1963.

All fotos, Will Van Dorp.
