Here was 24.
It’s T’day, and one of many things I’m thankful for is readers who write back and send fotos like these.
First foto, it’s Tilly! Stephen Freer sent this from Key West, where he seeks investors to get this 1943 vessel built in the sixth boro operating as a tug co-operative using waste vegetable oil for off-grid island fishing and farming co-ops. He plans to equip a work-barge with cast-off engines, bikes, and equipment for solar/wind/organic. Tilly‘s crew are co-op shareholders. Stephen says there’s some urgency to get her out of her current location. You could use this blog to get in touch with Stephen.
The next three come from Frank Garvey, who wants folks to see “his” pretty docks in Port Jefferson.
It’s Resolute and Evening Star.
Next, thanks to Jim Browne, this foto from two months ago, 9/20/2013 at Point Lookout, NY, headed east in Reynolds Channel just west of Sea Dog Creek. Jim says the people he works with are still pulling tons of Sandy-debris per week, and will be doing so for some time to come. I’d love to know more about this “pastel-yellow” tug. Pastel yellow? Might I need my color-correcting lenses replaced?
Happy Thanksgiving to all, how ever you spend the day. I’m grateful for the naked bird in my kitchen somewhere in size between a plucked hummingbird and a yanked ostrich.
Many thanks to Stephen, Frank, Jim, and Nemo for these fotos.
And finally, Wendell sends along a business site.

What kind of fotos does one get on a dark and drizzly morning? Well, through a fence I snapped this one of the virginal Evening Star . . . in the boro less than 24 hours! And less than a year and a half after keel-laying down in Louisiana.
Alice Oldendorff came in this morning . . . the first moving vessel I spotted today AND the subject of my first ever post nearly six short and long years ago. Alice shuttles aggregates between Port of Bayside, NB and Brooklyn Navy Yard.
And even more virginal than Evening Star, here’s DDG-112, to be commissioned in the sixth boro next Saturday.
Here’s Alliance St. Louis, a US-flagged RORO with
a smudge on her bow that resembles smudges I’ve seen on other ROROs. Anyone explain the origin of what appears to be primer paint over damaged coating?
Here’s the Kirby barge Pacific, which
has this unusual feature midships.
Moving her eastbound was Amy C McAllister. The tanker in the distance off Amy‘s stern is Lia.

Soon-to-be commissioned USS Michael Murphy will be open for tours tomorrow.
