8 was here.    In the foto below, note the name in raised metal.

Doubleclick enlarges, and then notice the same raised letters here.

Originally called John E. Matton,  built in 1958 near the confluence of the Erie Canal and the Hudson, the foto below [of Mischief] was taken in June 2010, and

the foto below of Thornton Bros was taken today, under the Bayonne Bridge, where

this foto was taken today as well . . . of the 1961  Caitlin Ann, as

was this foto in summer 2009 . ..  as Caribbean Sea.

This “colander” bow of  tanker Dispatch (ex-Texaco 147, Richmond, Nepco Dispatch) was taken in August 2011.  Dispatch was one of three identical ( I suppose) tankers built by Texas Steamship in Bath, Maine, in 1919.  Texaco 147 sank off Cape Ann in February 1957, and has therefore weathered underwater and differently.  Click here to see  a recent foto of Texaco 145 aka Chelsea.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.  Thanks to Jeff Schurr for info on Dispatch.

As the sixth boro holds its tugboat race this weekend, Cape Ann has its schooner race.  Wish I could be in two places at once!  And speaking of the tugboat races, see who has really caught the illustration bug and might be another “sketchy” spectator!  Bravo!
