Buchanan 12 light, under the same wintry sky.  The last time I saw the 12 was back when tugster last took a swimming day.  I’d love to see the high and dry hulls of Barney and Mary.

Here’s a first-timer for me in the sixth boro . . . Miss Emily, a saltwater member of the huge Marquette Transportation fleet.  Look carefully and you’ll see she sports equipment not commonly seen here.

One of my favorite harbor vessels . . . now called Ellen McAllister, used to do gray-work in Holy Loch, Scotland.  Here’s more on Holy Loch and its role in the Cold War.

Zachery Reinauer was built upstate at Matton 42 years ago.

Kristy Ann Reinauer, 51 years old, offers some style hints of 1960s trucks like this one.

I’ve no idea how long Harry McNeal has worked the boro, but she was launched in Louisiana in 1965.

Ditto my question on history of Robert IV . .  who launched in Louisiana in 1975.

Discovery Coast might be the newest tug in this installment.  It’s the creation of Frank Basile, whose bio as written by Brian Gauvin can be found here.  For a portfolio of his work, click here.

JoAnne III Reinauer, a 1970 vessel with a 2008 aluminum tower is one of the more unusual tugs in the sixth boro.  For a before-after look on tugster, click here.

Finally, a 1980 Oyster Bay, NY built vessel . . . now called Siberian Sea.

And that equipment unique to Miss Emily . . . it’s this knotted rope escape system.  To see this in use, look at fotos 7 and 8 in this tugster post from three years ago.

All fotos taken–with icy fingers–by Will Van Dorp, in the past few days.

Call me a wimp . . .  but it’s icy out there.  And yet people work outside.  Bravo and hats on for the crews and shipyard workers out there where the spray sometimes freezes.  Some quick fotos I took yesterday.  Would you believe this is the same DBL 140 barge you see in the 5th and 6th fotos here?

Here’s DBL 140 and Lincoln Sea from across the Upper Bay.
