Thomas J. Brown passes a Penguin on the way to the yard, westbound on the KVK.

Thomas J. (Gladding-Hearn 1962) is a classic.  At this link is an account of a day in the life of Thomas J crew, as told by John Soltes.  Penguin is less than three years old, made in China.

Morro Bay in springtime contrasts sharply with her image three months back, icebreaking on the upper Hudson.

Anyone know the year 140′ Morro Bay was launched?

Odin may not be a classic, but she is certainly unique, a bit of  exotic

technology in the harbor.  The 1982 tug is one of my favorites.

Zodiac PLUS Irish Sea (ex-Clipper, 1969).

The zodiac seemed to be doing drills off Morro Bay.

Scott C dates from 2007.

Here Scott C crosses Cape Cod, a staple of shortseashipping in the sixth boro.  In the link on shortsea… previous sentence, you are treated to bowsprite’s delightful eutopic visions for humanizing the sixth boro, unlike the dytopic view Alexis Rockman projects as a cautionary tale.

Closing shot:  a mystery tug, place and fotografer to be disclosed soon.

All fotos (almost) here by Will Van Dorp, in the past week.
