Here was 8.

Dolphin III, part of whose story is told in a guest post here, is a vessel I haven’t seen in quite some time, although I’ve been looking in the wrong places perhaps.  A few summers back she was doing some dive assistance in the sixth boro.

Below is a photo of Dolphin III from almost three years ago, the summer she was an ubiquitous feature in the watery boro.

I saw In Deep last summer one time, but never got a photo and therefore never looked it up, or maybe I did look it up and found nothing.  I do forget these things.  Anyhow, this time I noticed the word “Halcrow” just below the forward cain window and found this article about a proposal to spend a mere six billion on the Outer Harbor Gateway.

Is this proposal still in discussion?

Here’s a small yacht I have lots of questions about and no answers.  Some of the lines are a bit reminiscent of Florida Coasters.

See the manufacturer name just forward of the piling?  It seems there’s a whole line of “metro–” designed goods.   Note the engine bracket at the stern?

Here’s a virtual twin but with an outboard and a solar panel.

I wonder what residents think of them as abodes.

And here’s the last entry here . . a dredge tender perhaps?  I don’t recall ever having seen it afloat.  It carried no name although the colors of somewhat like those of Sea Wolf.
