Seeing the Moran boats on the upper left side of this foto reminds me that I owe you an answer to Relief Crew 9‘s question, which herinafter, shall be dubbed the “tugsterteaser,” term coined by Jed. Tugster teases maybe but always delivers. Answer comes thanks to Harold Tartell:
“The year of that photo would be early 1962. The M. MORAN (brand new but doesn’t look it) has returned to New York from Pusan, Korea after towing a floating generating plant for the U.S. Navy. She left her builders (Gulfport Shipbuilding in Texas) in Oct. 1961 and made the tow from there directly to Pusan. The MARIE S. MORAN built in 1961 (now TERESA McALLISTER) and sister MARGARET MORAN (now BRIAN A. McALLISTER) were both built in 1961 by Dravo Corp., Wilmington Del. They were on charter to Moran with an option to buy. McAllister took them over with the same agreement later that year, and ended up buying them. They were the first two tugs in McAllister’s fleet single screw with Kort Nozzles.” Thanks Jed and Harold!
So back to more posteriors. After reading the bottom paragraph of this post, decide whether to some the expression should be “negatively posterior”?
L. W. Caddell is a 1990 built 16′ breadth tug working around the Caddell yard.
Christian Reinauer, 2001, 40′ breadth.
Pati R Moran, 2007, 36′
Zachery Reinauer and Thomas J. Brown, 1971 and 28′ and … I don’t know.
Rosemary McAllister, 2008, 36′.
And while we’re looking at sterns, here’s an unexpected detail on Peacemaker, a boathouse behind the fold-down stern. Bowsprite sends along this foto.

And some discoveries lead me to reiterate my creative commons licensing. Fair is fair. More on this later. But please comment on this: what should I do if unauthorized use of my work turns up? What would you do?
