My timing on the KVK–I imagined –would coincide with B. Franklin Reinauer, the tug I’d seen in  . . . December 2010 as just a few interlocked steel members,  heading that way westbound;  I was thrilled to be in the right location with respect to the channel and the setting sun.  But I was wrong. She anchored off Gowanus Bay and came out of the notch, headed for Erie Basin.

So I have to content myself for now with these . . .   B. Franklin at the 30.

And although she didn’t use the KVK as a runway to pose for my lens, the sun did cooperate and

turn her and

her barge to gold.

Fair winds.
