Photos from Italy, Florida, and Trinidad, resp. The first photo comes thanks to Rod Clingman . . .tug Lourdes C towing Costa (not Concordia)  Fasonosa.  The second photo, thaks to Ashley Hutto, shows Florida Institute of Oceanography’s Weatherbird II–said to be first research vessel to reach Deepwater Horizon post-blowout.  The photo and the rest from S/V Maraki and my sister in Port-of-Spain.

Thanks to Bob Stopper, these photos show NYS Marine Highway’s Benjamin Elliot moving French canal barge Sojourn into the Lyons drydock area. Sojourn has quite the history that I hope to be telling more about soon.

Many thanks to Jonathan Steinman for these remarkable photos.  McAllister Girls and Ellen (or Robert?) tow Empire State to the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Indeed, it is a sight to behold a tow like this on the East River!

With many thanks to Tony A for the top two photos . .  it’s possibly the latest arrival in the sixth boro.

And the bottom photo is about as far from the sixth boro as you can get and still be in the Empire State . . . Kurt R. Luedtke.

 

Know this superstructure?  Guess the date?

Know other boats on this photo?  Actually I don’t although I see some Eklof colors.

Here’s Mary Turecamo as she appears today, i think.  I took this photo in November 2009.

And frequent contributor Ashley Hutto send this along.  Can you identify the location?

And finally, from Walter, a frequent commenter here, a novel view of Alice discharging aggregates.

These photos come thanks to bowsprite, Russell, Ashley, and Walter.   Thanks very much.

Answers to the questions are:  Mary Turecamo photos were taken during the 1986 centennial of the Statue of Liberty.  And Ashley took the his photo over near the Goethals Bridge.

 

When I noticed someone standing on a bridge in this rural area, I suspected it might be Bob, a person I’d never met but  . . . click here to see how many posts he’s already contributed to.

Anyhow, I was not surprised when later I received the following photos…

… all taken between Clyde and Lyons by Robert Stopper.

Thank, Bob, and great to meet you.

Not New York . . . that’s for sure.  But do the colors look at all familiar?

0aaaabh1

That name should tell you why I posted these photos, taken in Skagway, Alaska, and sent along by Bob Heselberg.  Click here for more info on Lily Oldendorff, sister of Alice, who most recently appeared here on this blog.

And finally, the day before the race, I got this photo from MY former Pioneer crewmate Darell Terrance Gilbert.  Now crewing on a people mover on the sixth boro, he sees a lot of things not many folks see.  for example, back on a cold evening in January, he sent along this pic that we’ve never quite figured out.

Bob and Darell, thanks much for sending along these pics.

Here was 15.  The first relief crew post appeared here over seven years ago.  The idea is to feature someone else’s photos and/or writing, just because so many of you see, photograph, and write such interesting stuff AND –of course–because collaboration is such powerful leaven.

All these photos today come from Birk Thomas.  The event was the departure last week of CV-60 USS Saratoga–Brooklyn built–for the scrapyard.    For some intriguing photos of the other end of her life, click here for this navsource site.

Signet Warhorse III is the motive force.

Not until last night did I learn that a final aircraft takeoff and landing was happening at this very moment up on her flight deck.

Again, many thanks to Birk Thomas for use of these photos, which not all of you have seen on Facebook.

Parrish . . .as in Maxfield Parrish . . . always painted skies like these  . . .

The photos come from a mariner minus moniker.

 

Yeah . . . so what is it?

0aaaawz1

I don’t know, but I’ll wager it’s coming to a dock near here soon . . .

Many thanks for this photo to a secret salt.
