Thanks to Allen Baker, here are two “golden hour” photos of likely the newest ship-assist tug in the sixth boro, Capt. Brian A. McAllister.

 

Here’s my limited first view of the new McAllister, taken back in mid-August, right after she arrived.

She’s mostly hidden by Eric, although this allows a profile comparison of the two.  Here’s a point by point comparison of the superstructure of Capt. Brian and Eric.

My own chance to see the new boat closer up came earlier this week, and

I share those photos here.

 

 

In contrast, I took these photos of the previous Brian A. McAllister–now scrapped–in 2008.
