Five years ago I did this post about barge names.  Here are some bows I’ve looked at recently, including this one that speaks to winter in the sixth boro.  When I started looking up vintage, I was surprised.  RTC 61 launched from Rhode Island in Sept. 2010.

RTC 502, Texas, March 1976.    Notice the Vane barge with yellow trim between RTC 502 and the red ship?

Coincidentally, Magothy is pushing Doubleskin 502, July 2008 out of Jeffersonville, Indiana.

a respectable GRADALL with an articulated-neck jackhammer that caused much

consternation among these geese.
