Over on the port side of the upbound  Jag Leela, name that tug.  Answer follows at the end of the post.  Doubleclick enlarges.

Jack Holland (ex-Phyllis and Papoose, 1984). I think.

Left to right:  Purple Hays (Bludworth-built, 1966)  and Timothy McAllister (ex-Osprey and Barbara McAllister, 1966)

stern of Grape Ape (1951), Big Daddy (1954 RTC-built), High Roller (1969 Jakobson-built) , and (again) Purple Hays.

Madeline (Gladding-Hearn, 2008), one of the Wilmington Tug vessels.

Lucky D (1970).

Neill McAllister (ex-Puerto Nuevo, 1964) over on the Gloucester City, NJ, side with the Walt Whitman Bridge behind.

Teresa McAllister (1961) and floating office.

B M Thomas (1926).

Bart J Turecamo (1968).

Helen D. Coppedge (?)  There’s a Coppedge in Portsmouth, NH,  also.  What is the Coppedge history?  Here’s an older but interesting Portsmouth article.

Texan (scroll thru) matched with specialty barge Ponciana, here out of the notch.

Grace Moran (left of foto and Jakobson, 1967) and Valentine Moran (the mystery tug of the first foto in this post and ex-Coastal Jacksonville, 1977) spin Jag Leela.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.  Special thanks to Jeff Schurr and John Curdy.

Here’s a ponderable:  which companies, very common to this part of the Delaware River, have been omitted?  Answer tomorrow.
