The closeup of Nanticoke pushing Doubleskin 57 toward the Goethals Bridge below comes compliments of Allen Baker.
I took this foto of Robert E. McAllister.
Marie J. Turecamo here assists Barney Turecamo, pushing
the 118,000 barrel barge Georgia.
Four of the Dann Marine tugs: l to r, Emerald, Chesapeake in the distance, First, and Calusa . . . all Coast.
First Coast, the former
Morania No. 18 . . . See the traces of “R–A–N” in the painted metal?
Over in the East River, it’s Bruce A. and
Charles D. McAllister. See the McAllister striped Rosenwach wooden water tank on the building upper skyline left?
From l’amiga . . it’s another shot of Patricia, a 1963 tug built in Port Deposit, MD.
And last but not least . . . just cellphone-snapped by chance by Birk Thomas yesterday, it’s Miss Lis, which at this writing is about to steam past Sandy Hook on her way out of the sixth boro. What’s remarkable about this foto is that Birk caught this Tradewinds tug in the last two miles of a journey that started in LA! I feel like there should be a brass band playing or some other celebration of completion. Click here to my previous “seeing” of another Tradewinds tug.
