It’s late and the sixth boro has claimed me for a whole glorious day.  Some quick fotos, mostly from today.  Check this one out:  Sarah Ann (ex-June K) has experienced an identity crisis . .  .  her genuine orange self has begun bleeding through?

The theme here might be the seldom seen . . . like Coastline Girls, based on the south side of Raritan Bay.

Is this the same Miss Yvette as the one here three and a half years ago?

This is my first sighting for this Vane boat, Oyster Creek.

Long time no see .  . .  Yemitzis and Dorothy Elizabeth, here over south of the Outerbridge Crossing.

Buchanan 1 looked extraordinarily regal the other morning over by Owls Head.

The rare and exotic Shelby Rose passes near the salt pile.

Lois Ann L. Moran . . .  had her brights on this morning as 8:30 a.m., as some thick clouds closed in overhead.

And unrelated to the sixth boro but exciting nonetheless, Elisabeth (launched 1925) was named “tugboat of the year” (“sleepboot van het jaar”) at the National Tugboat Day 2011 in the Netherlands!  Congratulations, Maarten.   “Felicitaties!”

The last foto here by Fred Trooster;  all the others by Will Van Dorp.

Unrelated:  For a series of the fotos on the tug (En Avant 5) that got flipped /tripped yesterday in the Netherlands, click here.  Thank, John.
