Maria J (ex-Jesus Saves) . .  .63′ loa (length overall),  you’ve seen her here at least once before;  since that link mentions vhf chatter, you must see bowsprite’s latest creations and transcriptions.   Maria J was quickly overtaken by the three Brants.  Remember, for most fotos, doubleclick enlarges.

Crystal Cutler . .  . 67′ loa, all new and shiny . . .  has been in the harbor now at most . . . three months.

Recently I saw OSG Independence . . . 131′ loa pushing barge OSG 243 .. 557′ loa, in the sixth boro for the first time.

Swarming here from left to right:  McCormack Boys … 73′ loa,  Austin Reinauer … 110′ loa, and Bohemia … 95′ loa with barge GCS 235 … 285′ loa.

The venerable Crow, a Brooklyn-built Bushey tug …. 86′ loa.   I believe Crow first appeared on the blog here, almost three years ago, back when she was “crow red.”  To hear Crow‘s horn and see its ability to raise/lower the wheelhouse, click here and see the embedded youtube at the end of that post.

Freddie K. Miller passes by in its latest colors.  Remember when she was orange and also when she was white with black/orange trim and operating for the same fleet as …

Erie Service … 98′ loa, and Eagle Service … 115′ loa here?  Beyond Eagle Service, might that be Scott Turecamo … 116′ loa?

Here’s a light Norwegian Sea .. 131′ loa and here she is

deep in the notch of DBL 103 … at least 381′ loa.  Any guesses on the build date of DBL 103?

2005 was launch date for that, from Bollinger Marine Fab.    Click here for the main Bollinger site.

Finally, here’s a mystery tug moving a deck barge through KVK last weekend.  Snow covered up the name, and it’s a tug I

can’t recall seeing before.  Help?

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who’s happy we’re in the short winter month now.

Unrelated:  If you didn’t read Megan Fraser’s comment in Non-Random Tugs 5, she embedded a link to all the photos in the exhibit at the Independence Seaport Museum in Philly.  Here’s a shortcut to the link to these fabulous images.   Thanks, Megan.
