Uh … transplant to the Delaware?
Gulf Service heads in the same direction from over near the big guns of battleship New Jersey.
That transplant … It launched from Philadephia in 1902 to work out of New York, which it did until 1939. See the fourth profile below.
Jupiter (ex-Socony #14) currently is operated and maintained by a volunteer group called Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild. The tip of boom and yellow-green-white vessel belong to Gazela, the Guild’s other vessel, previously written about here and here (See fotos 7, 8 and 9).

Part 1 of this series looked like this. Now more.
Of course Brandywine ranges far and wide, and these days, maybe so does Inland Sea heading south here from the Ben Franklin Bridge.
All fotos last week by Will Van Dorp.
Over on the port side of the upbound Jag Leela, name that tug. Answer follows at the end of the post. Doubleclick enlarges.
Jack Holland (ex-Phyllis and Papoose, 1984). I think.
Left to right: Purple Hays (Bludworth-built, 1966) and Timothy McAllister (ex-Osprey and Barbara McAllister, 1966)
stern of Grape Ape (1951), Big Daddy (1954 RTC-built), High Roller (1969 Jakobson-built) , and (again) Purple Hays.
Lucky D (1970).
Neill McAllister (ex-Puerto Nuevo, 1964) over on the Gloucester City, NJ, side with the Walt Whitman Bridge behind.
Teresa McAllister (1961) and floating office.
B M Thomas (1926).
Bart J Turecamo (1968).
Texan (scroll thru) matched with specialty barge Ponciana, here out of the notch.
Grace Moran (left of foto and Jakobson, 1967) and Valentine Moran (the mystery tug of the first foto in this post and ex-Coastal Jacksonville, 1977) spin Jag Leela.
Here’s a ponderable: which companies, very common to this part of the Delaware River, have been omitted? Answer tomorrow.
