Although far from the sixth boro, my thoughts are there, and this is one —deep creatures... including bowsprite‘s–extravaganza I regret I’ll miss.  But you don’t have to.

Unrelated, click on the image below for Keyport Kid aka Jimmy Mack’s haunting set of fotos on the scrapping of Catawissa, a historic East Coast tugboat, scrapped in 2008 after launching 110 years earlier . . . 1898.

The Catawissa

Robert Apuzzo and Norman Brouwer made a video on board the historic tug soon before her scrapping.  Watch both part 1 and 2 and learn such detail as what suit of sail Catawissa originally carried.

Many thanks to Jimmy Mac, Robert Apuzzo, and Norman Brouwer for their work.
