These fotos compliments of Allen Baker, whose fotos ran previously here and here … and other places.   Elsbeth II (featured in a New Yorker story by Burkhard Bilger in April 19, 2010) tows dead ship Horizon Crusader to be scrapped At Southern Recycling.  Elsbeth II is a triple-screw boat built by Smith Maritime‘s owner, Latham Smith.

Of the two Crescent vessels,   Point Clear minds the stern and another tug escorts on port.  Tug alongside on starboard . . . identified with Harold Tartell’s help … is Angus R. Cooper (1965, ex-Paragon, Anthony St. Philip).

Crusader‘s older sib–Challenger–seems to languish in Bayonne.  Anyone know what’s happening with Challenger?  It did make at least one trip south recently, but now it seems idled again.   [[Thanks to Jeff Schurr:  Said Bayonne vessel is NOT Challenger but rather Discovery, which explains why I thought she (Challenger) had quickly deteriorated into her former condition. ]]  Jeff, thanks for the correction.

Also, down along the big river recently was Paul T. Moran, 1975, ex-Ocean Venture, S/R Golden State, Exxon Golden State, and Eliska.  Paul T. appeared here light back more than two years ago.

Also along the big river, from left to right:  Bluefin (2009), Susan W (1982, ex-General Lee), Gladys B (1937), and Capt. Albert 1931, ex-Miss Sarah) .

Many thanks to Allen and Harold.
