Here’s a first-timer for me in the sixth boro . . . Miss Emily, a saltwater member of the huge Marquette Transportation fleet. Look carefully and you’ll see she sports equipment not commonly seen here.
Zachery Reinauer was built upstate at Matton 42 years ago.
Kristy Ann Reinauer, 51 years old, offers some style hints of 1960s trucks like this one.
I’ve no idea how long Harry McNeal has worked the boro, but she was launched in Louisiana in 1965.
Ditto my question on history of Robert IV . . who launched in Louisiana in 1975.
Ruth M. Reinauer is the mother of facet tugs launched in Rhode Island around a half decade ago.
JoAnne III Reinauer, a 1970 vessel with a 2008 aluminum tower is one of the more unusual tugs in the sixth boro. For a before-after look on tugster, click here.
Finally, a 1980 Oyster Bay, NY built vessel . . . now called Siberian Sea.
And that equipment unique to Miss Emily . . . it’s this knotted rope escape system. To see this in use, look at fotos 7 and 8 in this tugster post from three years ago.

Over six years ago, here was the last time I used this title. At 09:23 this morning, E. R. Denver was at Howland Hook as an outbound tanker eased by. E. R. seems to have been created by erasure from MaERsk.

This is serious, precision navigating,
with even less tolerance of errors because of the channel work, and
surrounding traffic, like Kristy Ann Reinauer and Paul Andrew and dredge units.
This short stretch of Arthur Kill, where serious dredging is enlarging the channel, were featured here and here (a blast!!) back last October. I’m not given to playing video games or using simulators, but if such a thing were available, I can imagine spending time playing “games” imitating professionals piloting different types of vessels through ports of the world in every sort of conditions. Hats off to the professionals.
