Here are more photos from May 1.  Betsy Ross is a product of  Yank Marine in Tuckahoe, New Jersey.  

Here, r to l, are three generations of sixth boro people movers . . . Betsy Ross, Garden State, and the new NYCFerry known as H202 for now.  Garden State was launched in 1994.

H202 crosses the bow of the mighty Helen Parker.

By an hour later, Betsy Ross is already roaring back from across Raritan Bay.

Closing shot is H202 wheelhouse as seen from the upper passenger deck . . . approaching the Marine Parkway Bridge.

 

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who is preparing to head back northward on the ICW, which I’ll call Gallatin’s Ditch.
