They say we never had a winter in 2011 into 2012, but on this first full day of summer, a hot season has begun. What better day to look at Cook Inlet. I’m using these fotos with expressed permission from Seth Tane, who took them four years and a month ago; see his painting here.
Seth’s platform here is Polar Adventure. Click here and scroll to see her shuttle route between Alaska and the West Coast during the past 30 days alone.
And the “tailgating” tug is Tan’erliq, a Crowley ship assist and tanker escort, training.
Click here for a commendation Tan’erliq shared with an even more powerful Crowley tug for rapid response to a tanker power loss.
Line is made and pullback begins. This process makes me think of calf roping or kayak hunting.
Unrelated: Bravo to community Board 1 for passing a resolution supporting wood carver Sal Polisi’s right to stay put. Shame on EDC for their broad-broom sweeping all that impedes their planning.
Well, maybe not that different, since I’m not reinventing myself. But enjoy these fotos, and while looking at them, fugure out where you’ve seen this tug before on this blog. Look carefully. It took me about 30 seconds to recognize the red tug below as a more pristine version of a tug that appears here periodically. Fotos were taken in the 1980s by Seth Tane, who generously shares them here.
In its current state, this tug, using the same name, has considerably more equipment on board. What hasn’t changed is the profile of the Palisades in the background of some of these fotos, taken in or near Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.
A major change in the tug relates to visibility; the portholes would make me claustrophobic. However, since the mystery tug was built on the Great Lakes, maybe portholes conserve heat better in winter. Tug Daniel A. White, below left, has more conventional glass. Anyone know what has become of Daniel A. White?
If you guessed Patty Nolan, you were correct. Here’s her current work page, showing her original form. Click on the following links for a sampling of Patty Nolan fotos from the past few years, like modelling 2011 summer beach fashion, at work in the East River, moving snail-like with house, and finally . . . for now . . . Patty Nolan outlaw fashionista.
Thanks much to Seth for these fotos from the early 1980s.
Below is a foto (poor quality) that I took in December 2000. I clearly had forgotten how barren the Jersey City shore just north of the Morris Canal looked a mere 11 years ago, almost reminiscent of a desert town. This foto was among a batch my sister handed me at Thanksgiving, but those foto gave me
an idea. Maybe you have fotos in a drawer, a shoebox, and album, etc. that show some part of the sixth boro and/or vessels there. And if I may so brazen, tugster would LOVE to see any fotos you might come across and are willing to share.
Here was Something Different 4.
