A sign of changing seasons for me is . . . this weekend . . . staying in, getting in touch, catching up, following up.

Exhibit A:  Daniel DiNapoli, built in Stamford, CT  at Luders Marine.  I took this foto about six years ago, used it in the first full month of this blog but never named it here.   The vessel came up in a conversation this week with its former name Spuyten Duyvil and its legendary captain . . .  Before that, this vessel of timeless beauty was False Cape and YT-164, built 1941.  Has anyone seen her recently?  I’m guessing she frequents the north shore of Long Island, a place I know as little as Polynesia.

Exhibit B:  Foto thanks to Jeff Anzevino and taken last weekend in the Potomac off Alexandria, VA . . .  Bourne has some squatters who feel comfortable enough to build some sizeable nests on her.

I’m guessing she’s idled by litigation.  The Washington Post took notice already a year ago, as evidenced here.   I want to know why she’s wearing USACE colors, more clearly seen here.

Exhibit C:  Thanks to Jim Wark, the next three fotos show the “graveyard” on the Arthur Kill, fotos all taken in September 2000.   The foto below show the yard “north” from Hila.

Using Hila again as the axis, see the vessels here looking south.    For more of Jim’s vast archive, click here.

Finally, Exhibit D:  I dropped the line on the mighty The Bronx, as she looked a few years ago and

as she looked to my camera in early September.  The “twenty-five-footer” was built in 1952 at Island Dock company.  Thanks to Robert Apuzzo for the “before” foto showing Viking in her deshabille disarray.
