These fotos come from Phil Little, who took them from Weehawken.  They complement the ones taken by bowsprite and published here a week ago.  A strong ebb tide appears to be moving the big gray New York very quickly toward the Intrepid pier, but


the dance of three coordinated tugs makes the departure a study of efficiency, although–as Phil suggests, “there may have been some brow-mopping after they got LPD-21 straightened out” and proceeding southward bound for sea.



And here, thanks to my sister on Maraki, two landing craft exit a lock on the Erie Canal a few months back.  Does anyone know their story?


Thanks much to Phil Little–showing closer-ups of Robert E. and Ellen McAllister and Resolute, here’s a differently cropped version of foto #1–


and the Maraki crew for these fotos.
