I took all fotos in this post last week on Staten Island. Check out these 40-footers, and if I read the numbers right, these three all date from just over 60 years ago. Somewhere in the past seven years I posted a foto of two of these three in the Arthur Kill.
But this is an impressive adaption project, not restoration. And I’ve finally gotten a close-up look. Fred tug44 got these fotos some years back, but for a vessel that dates from 1929 . . . not that long ago. I wonder what her USCG-service name was.
I’m curious about the horizontal tab on the rudder. Enjoy the rest of these.
All fotos taken recently by Will Van Dorp, who’s still in the wilds of northwest Georgia, hoping though to get back to the sixth boro in time to see Miss Lis.

Here what a quarter day (sunrise until very early afternoon) can look like in November . . . the same weekend the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree came to town. To digress on this last point just a second, would it not be fantastic to have the 2011 (and all subsequent ones) Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrive in the city by tug and barge?!?? Let’s make it happen.
So, Homie commuted from Gloucester again yesterday to make the sun rise. Thanks Capt. Joey!
The early morning survey boat heads out as soon as Homie causes the sunrise.
Norwegian Gem shuttles in its passengers from the “chartless sea” as a tiny Andrew Barberi shuttles its passengers between Manhattan and Staten Island.
Atlantic Salvor muscles its way around the Upper Bay.
By late morning, the air is clear, as Freja Selandia emerges from remnants of wooden barges toward the Arthur Kill fuel terminals.
CG 40450 heads in the same direction. 40450 last appeared here.
Snow Goose stopped by the fuel dock to slake its huge thirst from the same source tugboats do.
And last but never least, Kristin Poling, dating from the same half decade as the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center, hurries along for just another day of work, its engine heat radiation turning the superstructure of Ajax into shimmer.
