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.
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?
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?
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.
