Iron Mike . . . 1977 and 53′ loa . . . has lots of character
although I don’t know what engine/horsepower moves her. Anyone?
If we were talking birds, Pacific Reliance (red stacks) would be called an exotic, not common to this habitat. Pacific Reliance . . . built in 2006 and 121′ loa uses 9280 hp to move her payload. Alongside is Quantico Creek, 90′ loa launched in 2010 and rated at 3000 hp.
Brooklyn, 76′ loa, launched in 2000 with 2000 hp has had lots of identities in her 14 years of service.
And finally . . . dwarfed by the Lower Manhattan skyline in February, it’s Pegasus.
Built in 2001, 75′ loa and rated at 1900 hp.
