Here was Exotics, the first of this series.   Exotics are the out-of-the-ordinary vessels, ones not common to these waters.

The first four photos here come thanks to Kenny Montz, who had his reasons for watching DSV Joseph Bisso arrive in the sixth boro of NYC.   The church in the background is St. Patricks, not St. Louis.

I was locked in at work but watching periodically on AIS, wondering whether such a vessel might be here for Tappan Zee Bridge work?

Click here for info on the addition of Joseph to this Bisso fleet in 2008.  Previous Bisso boats on tugster can be seen here and here.   Maria J is in the background along the wall.

Kenny, thanks much for sending these along.  Former names for the boat are Thresher, Rapid River, and originally, Kathy Candies.

This morning through the sprinkles I caught another exotic, Rikki S, a P & L boat.    In the background, it’s Barney Turecamo.

Again, I’m not sure how long these boats will be in local waters,

or what jobs brought them here.

Thanks to Kenny for the first four photos taken yesterday;  the last four by Will Van Dorp this morning.
