Note:  This morning I noticed that wordpress has automatically added a captioning space below each photo, so I’ve decided to use it.  What unifies this set of photos is the fact that it shows three of the most powerful NYC-based tugs that primarily assist powered vessels into and out of the port.

I think the last time I used a photo of Amy C McAllister was here, actually not that long ago.  Here’s a comparison of the three boats featured here by horsepower.

Eric McAllister–5150, Laura K–5100, and Robert E–4000.  I suspect the sixth boro will be seeing a new Moran vessel with 6000 horsepower by mid-summer.

Let me know what you think of the use of captions.
