Le vie navigabili . . . is what you could call “sesto borgo” or “the sixth boro.” And it’s navigated by creatures small as these canadagoslings,
Say hello to 3/4 of the painting crew on Pegasus last Saturday. Vote daily for Pegasus here–so that she might benefit from a huge grant of $250,000–and
starting from THIS weekend, come and visit Pegasus on board at Pier 25 in the boro called Manhattan. The schedule now calls for Pegasus to leave this “canale” within the sixth boro tomorrow . . . Thursday, pick up Lehigh Valley 79, and move back over to Pier 25. In reference to the canales di venezia, Pegasus would look good exploring there . . . By the way, here’s a log of Pegasus’ last visit to the drydock for work.

By the way, the tugboat shown most completely in the 4th foto is the 1943 46.5′ Linda G. I don’t know where she was built. Pegasus is 96′ and 1907-built in Baltimore. The goslings, hatch of 2012, were about 4″ long.
For info on where the canal is, see this post from last year. The distant red tug you see in that link is the 1907 Pegasus recently in drydock but now getting springtime service. I visited this area of Jersey City and posted fotos a year ago here.
So yesterday seemed ripe for a revisit–as well as an ideal time to help with the springtime chores on Pegasus. Here, from near to far are Little G, Sandy G, Katherine G (featured here), Pegasus, and a bit of Patriotic.
In the same order, this shows a closer view of Little G, and
as seen from Pegasus, this view of Patriotic as
well as this one.
Shooting back toward the east, a classic 43-footer, Linda G, and
Annie G II (whom I’d imagine as Littlest G) . That’s the lower Manhattan skyline in the background, exactly the location from which I shot the first foto in the first link of this post.
Here’s Cape Race, featured here, still on the south side of the Canal.
Some details on these:
Sandy G (1962), Katherine G (1981), Patriotic (1937, a Bushey formerly known as Rainbow), Linda G (1943), and Annie G II (2000). Cape Race is Quebec-built, 1963.
