I hope you’re enjoying this time warp as much as I am.
Foto #1. Princess Bay northbound through the Old Bay Draw.
Foto #2. When I first met this vessel, she was known as Kristin Poling. Click here and here for fotos including some of her last month before scrapping.
Fotos #3 and 4. Reliable II northbound and . . .
showing the sculptural beauty of her house.
Foto #5. Here’s another YO turned tanker turned reef, A. H. Dumont. I’d love to hear about the condition of these reefed vessels from anyone who’s dived the Jersey offshore.
Foto #6. John J. Tabeling doing what tug/barge units do today . . . . bunkering. Tabeling was scrapped in 2005; Statendam was scrapped in 2004.
Foto #7. Another shot of Tabeling, here exiting the east end of the KVK. Foto is taken looking toward Richmond Terrace, current location of the salt pile.
Foto #8. Question . . . is this Mary A. Whalen? Here and here are fotos of the ambassador vessel of PortSide NewYork. Many more can be found by adding the vessel name in the search window upper left.
All fotos taken by Seth Tane around 30 years ago.
