I’ll start here for a reason. This 1941 vessel built in Stamford, CT, was originally YTL 169, 61′ loa. In November 1997 she was called Spuyten Duyvil and used to transport the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree from Stony Point to the East river. I’ve mentioned this before, but although I’ve searched high and low, by letter, word-of-mouth, and electronically . . . I’ve located NO fotos of that event. None!! Can this event have completed eluded the photography crowd? If you know of a foto, please get in touch. Click here for a foto of this tug–I believe–I took almost 8 years ago now.
Ever Decent . . . foto taken 10 days ago, here being passed by Evening Star, is already well into the Pacific Ocean.
Turecamo Girls, here in the KVK, was waiting on the outside of the Amtrack Prtal Bridge last week, but of course I didn’t have a camera.

So, does anyone know of a foto showing Spuyten Duyvil with the 1997 Rockefeller Christmas tree heading south from Stony Point?
