Some recognize their “heroes of the harbor,” and that’s a great thing.  I’d like to offer my list of “paladins of the port waters,”  honoring all those who work on the sixth boro and adjoining waters, be they partially permanent or totally transient visitors of our great port.

Honorees change constantly.  A recent survey of those mariners include crew of Indonesian-flagged High Seas, a vessel previously here under the name Pacific Turquoise.

Add in Yorktown, currently in town employing shipyard workers after

a mishap on the Great Lakes.

Kudos to this unidentified Moran boat moving containers around the harbor as they should be moved  with much great frequency.

I think it’s Brendan, but the Lady on the other side of the barge is not talking.

Here’s to the hundreds of working mariners and shore crews represented by Carnival Miracle, Emma Miller, and the unidentified barges here.

Hats off to the crew of Natalia McDevitt, which I’ve never seen here before.

Let’s hear it for the crews of Laura K and the unidentified tanker off her starboard, now headed to points south and east.

And a salute to crews who might rescue you in case of mishaps on the waters.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who thanks you for checking his list.
