Here was 17.
All the photos in this post come from south of latitude 26 N. You might recall the Foss tugs Lauren and Iver delivering the crane to the sixth boro at the end of last month? Then Lauren Foss traveled to Philly to pick up back haul? Well about two days ago, Lauren delivered that payload–Forrestal–to the scrapyard in Brownsville, TX. The ship in the distance to the left is SS Mount Washington, also a recent arrival here, and subject of a several recent pictures on tugster. The photo below shows the stern of Lauren Foss with assist tug Signet Ranger on port bow of the old carrier. The next three photos all come from Justin Earl, on paper . .. chief mate of Lauren.
Another shot of Signet Ranger and at stern, Signet Magic. For specs of Signet tugs, click here.
On starboard bow here is Signet Courageous.
I’ve no identification of the two vessels in the foreground.
Oh . .. the port is Clifton Point in the Bahamas.
The blue and white tug to the left is Tiki, but again I have no further info.
And finally . . . Sea Trader. Click here for a closer up photo.
Many thanks to Justin and Maraki for use of these photos.
