Here was 1. And for reasons I’ll explain at the end of this post, this title might not be the best one. Maybe by that time, you’ll figure out a better one as well. The idea came from here–Nord Snow Queen I took in March 2012 in Panama, and then a friend’s photo from Cappadocia, which I’ll add at the end of this post.
So a better name might be ovens and freezers, or heat & ice, given that photos 2, 4, and 6 . . . as well as 1 were taken in temperatures close to 100 F (Bonneville Desert) whereas photos 3, 5, and 7 were Hudson River in this winter I now wish would subside into history. Here’s the photo from Tuz Golu (Salt Lake) in Turkey.
The Turkish photo by Lauren Tivey; all others by Will Van Dorp. And one place I’d like to get to is here.
Newburgh-Beacon Bridge, late October 2013.
Same bridge February 4 2014.
WYTL 65611 Line and Doris Moran passing under that same bridge February 4 2014.
Looking south toward Bannerman’s Castle late October 2013.
From not as close . . . but that’s Bannerman’s slightly off to the left.
Northside of Bear Mountain Bridge in October 2013 and
yesterday with Stephen Reinauer with RTC 80 north bound and
and Stephen-Scott with light barge RTC 20.
Doris meets the train.
Here’s looking south from Newburgh dock mid November a few years ago, and
here’s the same view from earlier this week.
All fotos of two of the faces of the Hudson River by Will Van Dorp.
First . . . this foto by Bob Dahringer of Katherine (1979 in Louisiana). As of this writing, Bob is back upriver playing with Hudson River ice cubes.
Next . . . this foto from Key West, thanks to my sister, who’s gotten a camera upgrade. Yay! A few years ago, I was snorkeling–sans camera–off a Key West beach and came up to notice two tugboats that looked a lot like these. My first thought then was–wow! K-Sea tugs in the Conch Republic. My second thought was . . . I have no camera and therefore no one will ever believe me. I’m now pretty sure I saw Titan (1974 in Long Beach, CA) and Ocean Atlas (1964 in San Diego, California).
Brian DeForest took this foto of Marjorie B. McAllister (1974 in Louisiana) last week of a very icy sixth boro.
And recently . . . in a springy waterboro of NYC, Brendan Turecamo (1975 in Louisiana) assisted a tanker on its way out to sea,
Doris Moran (1982 in Louisiana) assisted a chemical tanker into port, and
Miss Niz (2003 from Alabama) moved some dredging equipment around. Note the survey boat–Michele Jeanne–reading the bottom contours over on the Bayonne side.
Thanks much to Bob, Maraki, and Brian for use of their fotos.
Count’em . . . three! Becky Ann and two of Ken’s boats.
Click here to see a post I did a few months back on crewboats exclusively. Miami River shuttles in here past Charleston in drydock.
Becky, Doris, and Maria T.
Wolf River has returned to the sixth boro after some time away. Brazil maybe?
A few weeks ago, here’s Julia assisting as Freddy K Miller prepares to move a construction barge away from Governors Island.
Miss Ayva in the straits of Gowanus down under the BQE is one of the workhorses . . . work ponies of the harbor, not unlike
this unidentified vessel off Happy Dynamic‘s stern and
Gabby . . . here staying ahead of Sarah Ann and her clutch of barges and
Julia fearlessly speeding out the flat Narrows to run someone out to Gravesend Bay.

The next three fotos come compliments of Rod Smith, whose Narragansett Bay Shipping site does a thorough job of documenting many things including all newbuilds worked on at Senesco Marine, where the new Caddell’s drydock was constructed. Here’s the launch day, performed by rolling airbags. See the upper wheelhouse of newbuild Dean Reinauer to the left behind the shed. Small tug afloat is Hawk, ex-YTL 153.
Although not quite wide enough to contain a football field, it is more than long enough. It would certainly redefine the game.
Here’s a foto of the drydock taken from the upperwheelhouse of Dean. Can anyone identify the tug-in-progress directly in the foreground?
Finally, another of my fotos showing the tow just about home entering the Buttermilk Channel. The octagonal structure to the left is the vent tower for the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel.
Again, many thanks to Rod for use of these fotos. If you do Facebook, Rod has just posted fotos of arrival of United Yacht Transport’s Super Servant 4 in Newport, RI. Now if I were free, I’d head up and watch the float-off process.
Here was my first post on this drydock.
A month ago I caught this small drydock floating in. Today at noon Doris Moran with James Turecamo assisting dragged
this huge newbuild under the Brooklyn Bridge, the very same
Those are South Street Seaport Museum’s vessels over beyond the drydock.
Someone can refresh my memory of the dimensions this drydock will accommodate, but I can see the Staten Island ferry eyeing it already.
The tow headed through the Buttermilk Channel before
John Watson picked up these shots as they headed across the Upper Bay, passed Robbins Reef Light, and the
KVK, where she will operate.
The last two fotos here come from John Watson; all others by Will Van Dorp, who got these fotos inside another Caddell drydock three years ago.
I’m always looking for “first-timers” like Sam.
Is this the one . . . Sterling Equipment, built 1972? And it appears to have a Randive unit on the foredeck.
Viking, North River bound completes Ellis Island.
Reliance heads for the KVK.
Tampa, nearly 30 years old, has seen some intrigue in its day.
Aha! the small brown vessel beyond Eagle Baltimore . . . it’s December 1 and Eastern Welder has returned fishing to the sixth boro.
And a bit later, an IVS bulker named Kite passes the same tanker.
Doris Moran plows through the KVK.
Indy pushes through the Buttermilk and into the East River.
A USCG RIB passed off the bow of Stena Primorsk.
Enjoy another shot of Annabelle Dorothy.
Now this fits in the Whatzit?!@!? category. A sloop named Jazz and a sportfisherman named T2 mooring off some sort of workboat I’ve never seen . . . . Anyone help?

Think of the sixth boro as a destination/origin as well as a crossroads. WMEC-905 Spencer anchored in that point of convergence as of midday.
In points not far from Spencer and the Statue, cargo destined for/originating in this port was moving only if it could transfer in the harbor, petroleum liquid, like here, congress happened between barges powered by Pati T Moran and Sassafras as Meagan Ann passes by with a scow. For debris?
Kimberly Turecamo stands by with Long Island itself . . . well, a fuel barge by that name. The spirit is greatly willing to move fuel to faltering consumers on the shore, but the distribution system is broken, for now.
Nicole Leigh Reinauer awaits the green light.
St Andrews with barge on this side and Kimberly Poling on the other . . . like thirsty twins on their mother, Glory Express.
Traversing the sixth boro . . . Marion Moran pushes LaFarge barge Adelaide to points south.
Supply boat ABC-1 passes tanker Favola.
Diane B waits with a barge. A problem is that debris like blowaway and sunken containers may lurk unseen at the transfer docks.
Doris Moran, with another LaFarge barge, makes a power turn from the North River into the East River.
A cluster of DonJon vessels–tugs Mary Alice, Thomas D. Witte, and Brian Nicholas–attend to crane barges Columbia NY and Raritan Bay on some “unwatering” project just west of the Battery Coast Guard station.
Transiting the sixth boro from south to North is Apollo Bulker. More fotos of her later. She may be headed to Albany.
Ken’s Booming & Boat Service tug Durham passes the “seeing boat” Circle Line Manhattan.
Over by the Brooklyn Navy Yard, schooner Lynx heads for the Sound, past an East River ferry.
And–this just in–as of 1900 hrs tonight, APL Sardonyx became the first container ship to enter Port Elizabeth,
escorted in by McAllister Sisters and Barbara McAllister. Interestingly, see the foto here of her as one of the first into the port post-Irene!! Here’s another shot almost exactly two years ago of APL Sardonyx.
And a bit later, APL Coral came in, escorted by Elizabeth and Ellen McAllister.
Outside the Narrows waits USS Wasp, recently here five months ago for Fleet Week. A pulse has been re-established.
I am mindful that many residents of the area are hurting. My prayers go out for relief for them soon. Folks who suffered through post-Katrina are also sending along their prayers and encouragement, their solidarity with Sandy-afflicted.
We went through a “reboot” here 14 months ago, but this one is going to be much tougher.
As I post this, Hurricane Isaac approaches New Orleans, and the work of every mariner on the river is to ride out the storm. Even if it appears that almost nothing is moving on the river, movement is there and intense. Click here (now) for live views on the street and on the river in the Crescent City. To see what Isaac looked like over in Florida from Jed’s perspective, click here.
In the sixth boro, a race is a few days away, but vessels like Susan Miller--pushing the barge with the “rolled on and about to be rolled off” trailer–are at work.
Ditto an unidentified DonJon tug, Pati E. Moran, inbound
CMM CMA CGM Eiffel, and schooner Pride of Baltimore II go about their business.
Having “rolled-off” said trailer truck, Susan distances herself from Mary Whalen (just the bow at the starboard stern of the cruise ship) and Queen Mary 2.
Viking moves a barge through the KVK,
as does Arabian Sea and
Gramma Lee T Moran, and
the list could go on. Here, Doris Moran and Dace Reinauer . . . that’s tug work too. This last foto below comes compliments of Marian & William Hyman. Thanks.
All other fotos taken by will Van Dorp, who will be at the race Sunday. Thanks for reading.
