I’m enjoying this time travel back to the late 70s–early to mid 80s, and I hope you are too.
Foto #1: Between Yonkers and Hastings, lightship is No. 84, Camden-built 1907, the one that later did bottom duty in Erie Basin, until the Ikea development made it disappear. Can anyone identify the white vessel north of the lightship?
Foto #2. Today Mathilda rests on the north bank of the Rondout in Kingston, as I photographed her almost exactly five years ago. I never knew she also crawled out awhile on Pier 94.
Foto #4. James Turecamo looked like this when she carried Turecamo colors.
Foto #6. Listing perhaps? On a sandbank near LaGuardia perhaps? Frances Turecamo holds station to staboard. I can’t identify the tug to port.
Foto #7. Anyone know anything about a sunken lounge/restaurant once known as Drifters I?
