As I write this post, Lincoln Sea is southbound on the Hudson, just south of where Stena Primorsk ran out of the channel a month or so ago. Weddell Sea/Lincoln Sea foto was taken back in earlier September 2012.
This closeup of the Lincoln Sea-DBL 140 embrace seems small and intimate until you read the gradations on the the barge . . . those numbers mark feet.
Length and breath of the tug-barge unit
is 597′ x 79.’
Ocean Leader, here coming into the Narrows four days ago and currently in Port of Albany, is also 597′ loa but a little beamier: 105′ . . . panamax wide.
I don’t have the tug/barge dimensions of B. Franklin Reinauer/RTC 82, here paralleling Ocean Leader.
Behind tugboat John P. Brown (75′ x 26′) lies Stena Primorsk, in the “hole” undergoing repairs at Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair, and shown
here about a week pre-accident. Dimensions of Stena Primorsk: 597′ x 131′ . . . . 280,000 barrel capacity. Lincoln Sea‘s DBL 140 capacity is 140,000 barrels.
