Just for the record, here are the first two posts in this series, “1” and 2.

The foto below and the one of Dublin Sea come from Birk.   Greenland Sea is off Barents Sea port side.

 I last saw Barents move in early December here.   This foto is taken from near the old Singer plant in Elizabethport.

From the same vantage point, it’s Yankee, Greenland, and a third tug I should but can’t identify.

Here’s another shot from Birk, Dublin Sea over at the south end of Arthur Kill.  Dublin Sea was launched in Wisconsin in 2009.

First appearance of this vessel on tugster . . . taken a week ago passing Howland Hook . . . it’s Ireland (ex-Yorktown) built

in 1940!!  Some great Coastline Marine Towing jobs fotos can be found here.

Also moving a crane barge eastbound on the KVK, it’s Stephanie Dann (1978, ex-Mary Defelice); meanwhile

that same morning, it’s Taurus, launched under that name in Houma in 1979, heading

toward the North River, as

Turecamo Girls (launched in Savannah in 1965 as Capt. Jan Porel) headed under the Bayonne Bridge, eastbound and

Margaret Moran (launched in Morgan City in 1979) headed westbound.

Thanks Birk.

Not exactly related:  Some big doings on April 10 in Erie, PA as Ken Boothe Sr. and Lakes Contender get christened.  Have you been invited and want to get a few fotos for tugster?  Please get in touch.
