I could say a skinny man fell through the hole in the prop and tumbled in Alice-in-Wonderland adventures, leaving only his hard hat as clue to his whereabouts.  But that improbable tale has already been told and retold.

The truth is . . . obviously this is Pegasus prop.

And what a thing of beauty is her hull,

its curves.

The shape and flow seem organic, biological.

Has a model

ever been made of Pegasus?

If not, one should be.  And this just in from Harold Tartell, one has, a model by Bob Mattsson.  See it here.

Click here for Don Sutherland’s great fotos of Pegasus previous time out of the water for a haircut, shave, and lotioning.

In the sixth boro the wind tonight howls!

It’s no surprise that the last time I used this title happened also in the spring.  Morning sun . . . and Gramma Lee T gets paired with her own shadow.

Later, Laura K passes Gramma Lee T.  Laura K escorts in NYK Nebula whereas Gramma Lee T stands by Torm Venture, which

casts its orange haze onto wavelets, coloring in some of their planes beyond the buffleheads.

Nebula stays in port only enough time to shift some containers and then heads back to sea, and another port.   Savannah?  Click here for a global set of NYK ship fotos assembled by an aptly-named “hive mind.”

Weeks 533 –veteran of posts with locomotive and Airbus A320 liftings, heads out the easat end of KVK, powered by a a motley pair,  brace made

up of Robert IV and Weeks Kathleen.  Here are fotos of 533 righting Stellamare after its 2003 accident in Albany.  Compliments of  Tom Whittemore, here are more fotos of Weeks 533 “uncapsizing” Stellamare.

Before a skyline dominated by GS in Jersey and Empire State in Manhattan, here go Lucy (farther) and Curtis Reinauer.  (Previous names for the pair, respectively, include May McGuirl, Morania No. 7;  and Delaware. )

while in the very close, a pair of mallards floats past, the greener head of the two eying the lens.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, clearly taken this week before the late winter monsoon moved in.
