No . . . Joan Turecamo has not been re-cast as a government boat, but what about  that small craft off her port?

Yup . .  Coast Guard, maybe off a larger USCG vessel in port.   A  cold weather drill?

Here’s–in front of Ellis Island–a rare convergerce of  . . . a Newark fireboat, an enclosed USCG RIB, and a USACE survey vessel named Moritz.

But here’s the real treat , USCGC Gallatin aka WHEC-721.

The cutter is named for the founder of NYU!!   A brace of Jayhawks played/drilled in the skies over the sixth boro today.

Note the dusting of snow from Athena post-Sandy.

Gallatin measures 378′ loa x 43′ . . .  ie, 8.8:1 . . .  skinny and fast.

I’m not sure what’s being transferred here, but it’s a welcome return for me of Shelby Rose, the bright blue and yellow tug.

Since it’s been so long since I’ve seen Shelby Rose–certainly NOT a government boat- here’s another shot.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.

Unrelated question:  both yesterday and todayI saw folks wearing Smit apparel working in lower Manhattan.  Anyone know who brought Smit into the “unwatering” and cleanup?
