This post is devoted entirely to requests for info.  Like . . . what is the metal cage on this disintegrating wooden barge on the portion of Shooter’s Island shore right opposite Mariner’s Harbor?

Calaboose?  hoosegow?  tool crib?  bird cage?  rat pen?

Industrial to be sure, but what is

this structure right across the southeasternmost point of Port Elizabeth and near a green corner of Bayonne?

Lygra has an unusual design for these parts.  I caught her in Red Hook about two months back.  Anyone seen her before?  Know what she transported?

Someone asked me about this boat last winter, no doubt attracted by the design and the port of registry:  Portsmouth NH.  Until I watched it a bit this summer and noticed divers aboard, I was convinced that Dolphin III was a sport fishing vessel:  billfish or tuna.

But it seemed to be operating as a dive support boat, complete with

a fairly large tender.

So it didn’t surprise me to hear that the vessel might be working with a marine contractor.  Anyone know what project might be?
