Underestimate C & J Marine’s Jayne Davis at your own peril: twin Cats delivering a total of 630 hp can push a respectable load.



Also eastbound the same morning on the East River near the Brooklyn side was Annie G II, shorter by two feet and less beamy than Jayne Davis.



At work on the Hackensack, Christy Anne was recently attached to a barge carrying this blue machine with a pithy name. Here’s some shots from Tug44, currently lost somewhere in upstate waters.



I can’t pass on this:  that yellow machine on the spud barge moved by the tug… I guess that’s a tuggable truck.

Of course, truckable pushboats aren’t the same as mini-tugs, which are truckable too, pickup truckable even.
