Taken over in Newark Bay . .  a shrink-wrapped airplane on a barge . .  foto compliments of the team over at Henry Marine.  I did this post in April 2013, but you should befriend them on Facebook at Tug Life at Henry Marine for a different take on working in the sixth boro.  Anyone know where this airplane has gone/is going?  Two of several previous posts with airplanes on barges are here and here.


Over in Tottenville, it’s Bertha and the Outerbridge beyond that.  Thanks to Ashley for this foto.  Previously, Ashley sent along this foto.


Up near the Thousand Islands and the Canadian border, it’s Bowditch, foto compliments of Bob Stopper.  Bowditch dates from 1954 and used to be called Hot Dog.  More of Bob’s fotos from upstate NY and other places soon.


Taken on Penobscot Bay, it’s Cangarda, thanks to Allan Seymour.  He and Sally do the Sally W blog.


The next two–showing fish tugs–were taken by my sister on Lake Huron in August.  Previously I did posts about fish tugs here, here, and here.   Here‘s another series on Nancy K.   See more L & R here.



And last but not least, taken off New London during its schooner fest, it’s Malabar II, a 91-year-old vessel of John Alden design.  Fotos of this timeless vessel come compliments of Rod Clingman.



Mant thanks to Rod, Allan, Bob, Maraki, and –last but not least–the crew at Henry Marine for permission to use these fotos.
