I’m not positive, but this might be St. Andrews splayed against the electrical fields of Linden as dusk approaches.  No doubt she’s waiting for that swimming gull, just off the port bow, to clear.

It’s been over two years since I’ve seen Thomas Dann, 1975.

Doris Moran 1982 seems always coupled with Alexandra.  Click here for a foto of and detailed info about Alexandra pushed by another tug.  Thanks, Harold.

I’ve been seen Hubert Bays 2001 in two other color schemes.   Click here for one of them.

Elizabeth McAllister 1967 leverages British Hazel 2004 into the dock.

Davis Sea 1982 might be just a month from ice work, although today’s mid-50’s temperatures belie that.

From my vantage point, Evening Mist Tide 1970 was the first tug to catch morning sun today . . . ironically enough.  Glad you caught that error, Harold.

McKinley Sea 1981 seems scarce in the sixth boro all summer, but maybe I’m looking in the wrong direction when she’s around.

Oyster Creek 2011 looks identical to the other five boats of its class.  I wouldn’t notice if they switched name boards periodically.

Meredith C. Reinauer 2003 with RTC 150.

From left to right . . . Eagle Boston Baltimore 1996, barge New Hampshire 2004 , Scott Turecamo 1998 and Mark Miller 1991.

Hope you enjoyed this late summer’s day.  All fotos in the past few days by Will Van Dorp, who clearly is better taking fotos than identifying them even with the names front and center!
