I’ve written here and here about bow puddings, and some of those have since seen the shears. Little Bear is a delightful small tug (1952 launched and under 50′ loa) that you might expect to show some pudding, but
the new fur on the block (or in the boro) is Resolute, who wins as the new James Garfield or Rutherford B. Hayes of the sixth boro, from a hirsute perspective.
If Little Bear‘s namesake lived in the frozen north, then
leaving the small red tug bare and possibly sunburnt.
Is Resolute predicting a cold winter? Maybe we’ll be back on the ice soon?
Seriously, I love the Little Bear‘s lines and color as well as Resolute‘s puddening.

… er …short sea shipping (Shortsie Shipping) should save significant stress and other things. Read my two previous posts here. Shortsie is long-sighted: imagine the foto below as about 100 trucks you don’t have to follow on the roads this morning. And one tug–Catherine Turecamo–puts much less stuff into the air than 100 trucks.
The two engines here–Catherine Turecamo and Little Bear–move the goods of 100s of trucks, and fire red Little Bear is way cuter than any single truck. More Little Bear soon.
this one moved by Thomas D. Witte, dozens fewer trucks in your traffic lanes. Thanks, Shortsie. Anyone know of good websites on sixth boro and Hudson River efforts to promote Shortsie? Bowsprite has been exerting many tons of bollard pull there herself: check it out.
Notice the Empire State Building blimp mooring in the background?
