Photos from Italy, Florida, and Trinidad, resp. The first photo comes thanks to Rod Clingman . . .tug Lourdes C towing Costa (not Concordia) Fasonosa. The second photo, thaks to Ashley Hutto, shows Florida Institute of Oceanography’s Weatherbird II–said to be first research vessel to reach Deepwater Horizon post-blowout. The photo and the rest from S/V Maraki and my sister in Port-of-Spain.
The 1823 culvert under the canal is a spectacle. Hope you enjoyed it from below and above here.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who didn’t need a drone camera for these.
Know this superstructure? Guess the date?
Know other boats on this photo? Actually I don’t although I see some Eklof colors.
Here’s Mary Turecamo as she appears today, i think. I took this photo in November 2009.
And frequent contributor Ashley Hutto send this along. Can you identify the location?
And finally, from Walter, a frequent commenter here, a novel view of Alice discharging aggregates.
These photos come thanks to bowsprite, Russell, Ashley, and Walter. Thanks very much.
Answers to the questions are: Mary Turecamo photos were taken during the 1986 centennial of the Statue of Liberty. And Ashley took the his photo over near the Goethals Bridge.
When I noticed someone standing on a bridge in this rural area, I suspected it might be Bob, a person I’d never met but . . . click here to see how many posts he’s already contributed to.
Anyhow, I was not surprised when later I received the following photos…
… all taken between Clyde and Lyons by Robert Stopper.
Thank, Bob, and great to meet you.
Here was 17. Click here or use the search window on the left to revisit all the posts in this series. All photos in this post come from my sister currently in the Gulf of Paria, off Trinidad, a place calling me . . I feel it!
I can’t identify the vessel over near shore.
The orange vessel in the distance is Ramform Atlas, a truly usual design, as wide as it’s long; you have to look at the images in that link earlier in this sentence. No matter how functional Ramform is, to someone too long at sea, seeing this approach, it would truly seem a hallucination.

Many thanks to my sister and brother-in-law for these pics and for planting the idea of gallivanting off to the Golfo de Paria . .. soon.
. . . with some digressions . . . . The photo below of the procession leading to the Roundup comes from Jeff Anzevino.
Digress to the left . . . on the Troy (Lansingburgh) side through the trees is Melville Park and this sign and
this house. If you’re looking for a good read about Melville’s later life on the waters off Lower Manhattan, check out this Frederick Busch historical novel.
Here’s another shot by Jeff, taken from the 112th Street Bridge. You might recognize the crewman standing beside the wheelhouse port side. There are many other posts with photos from Jeff, such as this one.
From Jason LaDue . . a photo of tender (?) Oneida taken in 2001. Anyone know the disposition of Oneida? Click here for some previous photos from Jason.
And finally, from Fred tug44 . . . locking through E2 . . . right behind us. I feel grateful to have an occasional view of self to post here. Some of you have seen some of these on Facebook.
Thanks to Jeff, Jason, Bob, and Fred for photos here.
