I’ve seen this odd upper wheelhouse and failed to identify the tug–obscured behind a barge– so many times I put the question it raises out of mind. The question: how come I never see tugs with such a “stalk” light?
But yesterday in Raritan Bay I had my chance to make an identification: Bruce A. McAllister, house raised high.
But I also had this winter shot of Bruce A. , house retracted.
And Bruce A. yesterday, close-up of the stalk.
Now the same about Marjorie B? Here she lies alongside gantry-craned bulker Sun Suma
and a close-up.
Which brings us back to this foto. Is this Marjorie B?
So .. . which other McAllister boats have the periscope house: Justine? Sisters? Rowan? Girls?
