Guess this tug? This and alternate fotos here are taken by Seth Tane. Answer follows.
Joan Turecamo (1980 and one of the last tugs built at Matton in Cohoes)in the foreground. Guess the one in the distance?
Natoma . . 1976.
Vessel in the distance earlier was Susan Miller, 1981. I’m guessing the barge is loaded with riprap for shoreline protection somewhere in Raritan Bay. I wonder about the origin of those rockaceous chunks.
Peering over crane barge Delaware Bay, it’s Caitlin Ann, 1961.
And finally . . a tug with a tent passing a clock with no hands, it’s Miriam Moran (1979).

There are many blues in the sixth boro . . . besides my own. Saturday I caught an unexpected glimpse of King’s Point Liberator.
DonJon has their unmistakeable blue.
But then there’s this one, which mesmerized me for the first time almost six years ago and when the vessel was just off the ways.
Palva is a midsized vessel of the NesteOil fleet.
And these blues are just part of their corporate colors scheme.
No matter . . . I’m still captured by these colors,
arrested and drawn in.
Five years ago I wrote: “It’s the color of sky, water, twilight ice, and distant land.” When Palva left for sea yesterday, it’s destination was Murmansk, possibly 11 days away.
Murmansk . . . exotic though not balmy. Fair winds and frazil ice . . . if any.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who’s frustrated by wordpress interface changes which prevent the fotos from enlarging when you click on them . . . the way they used to. If anyone has a solution, let me know, svp.
