Vantage point here is the Buttermilk Channel, looking roughly west toward the Bayonne and Jersey City side of the sixth boro;  that’s the Bayonne Bridge in the distance.    Any guesses about these vessels?

Schooner turns out to be Spirit of Massachusetts  (1984), doing programming in New York.  I usually keep opinions on such matters to myself, but it boggles my mind that an out-of-town replica vessel comes to New York for such programming when less than a seamile away, two authentic schooners stay “chained” to the dock at South Street Seaport, eager local crews grounded and frustrated by a museum administration that says nought , an unseemly and surreal turn of harbor affairs.

Captain Dann (1974) pushes a scow eastbound.

Meanwhile over in Gowanus Bay  (aka the mouth of the canal),  the cement ship with the interesting stack . . .

aka Abu Loujiane (1966) has been moved to a new location beside the (abandoned) Port Authority Grain Terminal (1922).    Both appeared in this post from 14 months ago.

At the north end of the Buttermilk, Sea Bear (1990, Bay Star) enters the East River from the Jersey side.

Happy Mother’s Day weekend . . .   all fotos here taken yesterday by Will Van Dorp.
