Yes, you saw this foto in yesterday’s Truman post.  The orange tug is Vera K, stemming until the container ship passed, and then


it rotated to port with


barges of salt for the Atlantic Salt Company ,


salt that on the next icy day could end up on local highways.


If you think the crane looks like the one you saw in past weeks lifting an airplane and some locomotives, it’s not THE crane although it is a Weeks machine,


Weeks 529.  See it at work here.


And as soon as Vera K.’s barges were light, another set came in.    The salt came from a bulk carrier anchored over near Bay Ridge, but I couldn’t get over there for a foto.  Anyone know the origin of the salt?
