I’ve written here and here about bow puddings, and some of those have since seen the shears. Little Bear is a delightful small tug (1952 launched and under 50′ loa) that you might expect to show some pudding, but

the new fur on the block (or in the boro) is Resolute, who wins as the new James Garfield or Rutherford B. Hayes of the sixth boro, from a hirsute perspective.

If Little Bear‘s namesake lived in the frozen north, then

Resolute has taken over her protection,

leaving the small red tug bare and possibly sunburnt.

Is Resolute predicting a cold winter?  Maybe we’ll be back on the ice soon?

Seriously, I love the Little Bear‘s lines and color as well as Resolute‘s puddening.
