Here was the first in this series.  The good news is that this past Saturday Sea Lion was raised.  The first two images are credited to Tug Life at Henry Marine and Orlando Martinez.

Jon Harrison caught the next two over on the west side of Bergen Point . . . .  It’s the crane barge Columbia and the raised tug gets moved over to Port Newark.

She’s up and now there’s a lot of rebuild work to do, but I suspect before summer, she’ll be working again.

Thanks much Tug Life Henry Marine, Orlando, and Jon.

Here are my fotos of Sea Lion . . . certainly not 38′ loa, as has been reported.  Here she passes Coney Island a few years back and

here she exits the KVK pushing a barge.

I’m very sad to hear of the accident but happy all were rescued.

Check out the light exactly two years ago . . .  here.   And my first greetings this morning came from the Easter ducks, who’d heard about an egg hunt, I believe.   Mergansers passed too, but dove each time to hide bright colored bills.

Norwegian Gem, her bow painted like a post-modern Easter ovoid,  sailed into a harbor entirely tinted with the rosy fingers of dawn, ending a passage from Cape Canaveral.

Bavaria made an attempt to get out to sea.

Nor Gem shrinks the closer she gets to Manhattan’s passenger terminal.

Sea Lion (1980) heads Jamaica Bay bound to deliver a crane.

Buchanan 12, (1972) herself made over and painted anew for an Easter parade, enters the east end of the KVK.

Pathfinder charges forward between MOL Express and Overseas Atalmar.  Express left the Panama Canal 12 days ago, and will spend next Sunday in Europe.

A mariner stands watch.  What I’d give to be able to tell you his name, history, and his thoughts as he heads for sea on a Sunday morning . . .

And two last beasts  . . . unicorn and Oliphant . . .  round out our marvelous menagerie

I hope you enjoy this day . . . All fotos by Will Van Dorp.
