Four of the Dann Marine tugs:  l to r, Emerald, Chesapeake in the distance, First,  and Calusa . . . all Coast.

Pegasus . . . the former John E. McAllister and so much more . . . the only tug in the sixth boro that today still excurses (yup . .  that’s a word!) for the public.

First Coast, the former

Morania No. 18 . . .  See the traces of “R–A–N” in the painted metal?

From l’amiga .  .  it’s another shot of Patricia, a 1963 tug built in Port Deposit, MD.

And last but not least . . .  just cellphone-snapped by chance by Birk Thomas yesterday, it’s Miss Lis, which at this writing is about to steam past Sandy Hook on her way out of the sixth boro.  What’s remarkable about this foto is that Birk caught this Tradewinds tug in the last two miles of a journey that started in LA!   I feel like there should be a brass band playing or some other celebration of completion.   Click here to my previous “seeing” of another Tradewinds tug.

Here was a similar foggy day in the sixth boro a few months back.  AIS showed me this vessel with an auspicious name, and I figured it’d just magically turn clear if I went outside to watch.  Frogma found fog more glorious than I did.

Wrong!!   This is what fog looked like out there this morning.  That’s Charles D. McAllister headed out to meet a huge orange containership.  Somewhere off Charles D.‘s stern is the shiny new Curtis Reinauer . . . but obscured.  What fog sounds like, though, is not captured here . . .  low pitched blasts, penetrating yet not loud.

Up on the KVK  . . . this vessel that I’d seen in port a month ago  was at the dock, begging to be redubbed Foggy Venture.

Wolf River headed out as Chesapeake Coast pushed barge Chesapeake in.

R/V Seawolf passes by Sarasota on her way out as well.

Ellen McAllister joins Charles D. in assisting Rumanian-built Rio Madeira into a berth.   On a clear day, this would look quite different.

Cormorant throws wings up . . .when’s this going to clear?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Unrelated . . . but while I was studying AIS over coffee this morning, I saw that Ouro do Brasil was heading up Delaware Bay.  Now that’s a vessel with a paint scheme I’d love to see.  Anyone pass along fotos?
