Let’s start with LT-5 at the H. Lee White Maritime Museum.
Here’s The Chancellor at the NYS Canals dry dock as it was being flooded. Here’s a recent tugster post focused on this vessel.
Now the marketing name for this “tug” is a “barge pusher.”
Here’s a closer up of the engine unit and hydraulic-driven thruster, operating near Rotterdam Junction.
From Maraki in St. Eustatius . . . it’s Triumph. notice the submerged tug off to her port side.
Here . . . tending the piledriver in Amsterdam is Sarah L_Anne . . . I can’t quite make out the name.
Also from Maraki, it’s Statia Reliant off the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.
Back to the waters just east of Lock 11, it’s Wm. Donnelly tending a scow.
Thsnks to Ashley Hutto, this photo of Buccaneer, taken Tampa.
And to end where we started . . . it’s Oswego’s LT-5, accented by crepuscular rays.
