Maria J. Turecamo (1968) and Hercules (1961), side by side, and my psychic tells me Hercules may be about to set out on a long cold journey, over water. Given the name, I’m inclined to wonder what Hercules 12 labors were/are and where on that list this journey fits.
Scott Turecamo (1998) and
Reinauer Twins (2011) wait with their respective barges. Twins holds the distinction of being the newest tug in the sixth boro.
Norwegian Sea (1976) waits, but
Meredith C. Reinauer (2003) is on the move, as
is McKinley Sea (1981).
And most of them could carry Augie on davits as a tender. Anyone know the age of Augie, here at a dock upriver?
Finally, another foto of Byrce Kirk operating Patty Nolan (1931) and still running.
