Eastbound and from left, it’s Sunny Williams, Sarah Ann, and Ellen McAllister.

Around the same time, it’s a light Patrice McAllister eastbound.  Compare the April 2014 shot below with these April 2012 ones of her first arriving in the sixth boro after the tragic fire on Lake Ontario.

After all the ice work Kimberly Poling has done the past few months, Sunday was a welcome sunny day, I’ll assume.

It wasn’t until this tow turned away from head-one that I understood what I was looking at . . ..

but closer in  . . . it was clearly Stephen Dann (I think this is her first appearance on this blog) towing

Off Owl’s Head, it’s Pacific Reliance and Discovery Coast (I think) off to the west.

Pacific Reliance appeared here about six weeks ago.

Dawn yesterday Rowan approaches the McAllister dock after a + 1500-mile tow of Patrice from Lake Ontario.   I suspect that even if you didn’t know Patrice‘ story,  you’d feel the pain.  In many places and times, white is/has been the color of mourning and

rebirth.  The colors and light here evoked thoughts of resurrection . . . as I stood in a little cove yesterday;  structures in the background are in Port Elizabeth.

I offer these fotos of Patrice  out of respect for the loss.

Meanwhile, the foto from yesterday shows unnamed vessels lying in the port of Ushuaia (end of the world, beginning of everything), over 6500 miles south of the sixth boro.   Latitude number for Ushuaia is 54 degrees south;  Copenhagen is 55 degrees north.

Distance from Ushuaia to Cape Horn is less than 100 miles.   Again, thanks to Ben Orlove who took this foto from Le Boreal.

The newly named Patrice McAllister, sixth boro bound, experienced a fire near Kingston, Ontario.  For the story, see boatnerd here.   The Shipwatcher has the story here.  Bowditch, ex-Hot Dog and here the rescue tug, was featured on tugster here back in 2010;  see second foto from the end.

Several thousand miles south, Harding is an older tug still in use in the Panama Canal named for Chester Harding, not Warren G.

Foto taken almost 25 years ago from aboard sugar bulker Sugar Island, northbound in the Panama Canal.   Being a sugar-dedicated bulk carrier would make this one sweet vessel.

Top foto from USCG via boatnerd;  next two thanks to Allen Baker.

I’ve now also added Ship Watcher to my blogroll.
