And thanks to Mike Abegg, Alice Oldendorff, currently in the sixth boro, the vessel that started this blog over 2000 posts ago.

Also, still in port, Asopus.

And just out of the repair dock, it’s Stena Primorsk, having spent weeks in or around the harbor.

And finally . . . NYK Joanna leaves town yesterday.  Watch between tug and ship, starboard side,

here, for what has to be one

of the more dangerous jobs on the water.

It’s the docking pilot leaving the vessel as it heads for sea.

Perusal of the NYK fleet shows names like Mark Twain and William Shakespeare.  I’d love to see them come to town.

Unless otherwise attributed, all  fotos by will Van Dorp.  Thanks here to Birk Thomas and Mike Abegg.

0r . . . from Creativity to a Barefoot Princess in the time some folks sleep in on Saturday mornings.

0826 . . . from my office near Snug Harbor, I see this parcel tanker pass inbound.

0828, from near to far . . . Morton S. Bouchard Jr. , Creativity, and UACC Falcon on intial prep for a local shift east ward.

0914 . . .  Atlantic Salvor drags a scow of bottom carving while Brian Nicholas (?)  hauls paper for recycling.  That’s Marion Moran lower left taking Falcon‘s stern.

0928 . . . Brasil-bound Orange Star meets inbound OSG 350 pushed by OSG Vision . . .

0932 . . . Orange Star meets Zim Texas . . .  with a cluster of tugs off her starboard side.

0938 . . . HOS Energy 11104 tails Orange Star.  Siberian Sea appears to be Orange Star’s escort, although really she’s not.

0953 . .  . Geese flee approaching Falcon and Gramma Lee T Moran.

1036 . . . looking along the flared bow of sea-bound NYK Joanna.

1037 Ellen McAllister trails Joanna outbound.

1055 . . . bulbous bow of Porto begs for paint, maybe the image of a ferocious eye would fend off all inattentive traffic.

1056 . . . Porto meets MSC Federica.

left to right . . . 1058 MSC Federica, Zim San Francisco, Porto.

1107 . . . under the flare of Zim San Francisco, last appeared on this blog here.  And that’s Vane’s Wicomico out between Robbins Reef Light and Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower (1929) in the distance.

1113 . . . San Fran, Bruce A., and Elizabeth.  San Fran last appeared in the blog inbound as seen from the Bayonne Bridge four months ago here.

1121 . . .  Atlantic Concert heads inbound escorted by Ellen.

1144 . . . what’s this crabby thing?

It’s my princess . . .

called either Barefoot Princess or Welcome to Patchogue.  Note . . . that “patchogue” is a two syllable word.  Twelve years ago, while going to that town to see a man about a boat, I made the error of asking if I was in “pa CHO gee” rhymes with “patchouli,”  sort of.

All fotos taken from my KVK offices this morning.

Afterthought:  Do you suppose Patchogue is unilaterally annexing NYC’s sixth boro?
