Here was 17.

All the photos in this post come from south of latitude 26 N.  You might recall the Foss tugs Lauren and Iver  delivering the crane to the sixth boro at the end of last month?  Then Lauren Foss traveled to Philly to pick up back haul?  Well about two days ago, Lauren delivered that payload–Forrestal–to the scrapyard in Brownsville, TX.  The ship in the distance to the left is SS Mount Washington, also a recent arrival here, and subject of a several recent pictures on tugster.   The photo below shows the stern of Lauren Foss with assist tug Signet Ranger on port bow of the old carrier.   The next three photos all come from Justin Earl, on paper . ..  chief mate of Lauren.

On starboard bow here is Signet Courageous.

The next photos, again south of latitude 26 come from my gallivanting sister.  Guess the port?  Butterfly has been spotted in the sixth boro here and here.

I’ve no identification of the two vessels in the foreground.

Anyone help?

Oh . ..  the port is Clifton Point in the Bahamas.

The blue and white tug to the left is Tiki, but again I have no further info.

Many thanks to Justin and Maraki for use of these photos.

Signet tugs previously appeared here and here.

I thought I’d used this title before, but I was thinking about this one, backgrounds.  The idea here is similar.

From this angle, can you identify this vessel?

It’s a shipshape Pegasus!

From the same perspective, Justine McAllister and Franklin Reinauer leaving the KVK for the AK.

Ditto equally shipshape Mary Turecamo, from a perspective such that the visor practically obscures the house windows.

What’s the tale of three wakes . . . one recent and the others less so?

This is a good view of how a model bow fits snugly in the notch.

Where’s this and what’s this?  Although it looks like a building being overrun by tropical flora and fauna,

this might generate a different set of associations.

This was taken from the same  vantage point but with the camera pointed a bit higher yet, and it makes all the difference.

It’s OSC Vision entering the Upper Bay last weekend, giving new meaning to the term “shipshape.”  And the fauna here could be called landscaping goats . . . . or “scapegoats,” for short.

Two ships . . .  well, at least until you examine the farther one more closely.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who did this earlier goat homage here.
