0826 . . . from my office near Snug Harbor, I see this parcel tanker pass inbound.
1107 . . . under the flare of Zim San Francisco, last appeared on this blog here. And that’s Vane’s Wicomico out between Robbins Reef Light and Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower (1929) in the distance.

10:21 a.m. Charles D. spins around, racing back to the west end of the KVK to assist the next vessel westbound under the Bayonne Bridge, while Brendan Turecamo heads over to the Arthur Kill for an assist there.
