Here’s a shot of a 1962 tug named Kristy Ann Reinauer I took in August 2008 near Howland Hook/Elizabethport

and another in Bayonne in December of that year.

By August 2015, she was waiting to be scrapped.

In late March the 2018 Kristy Ann anchored in the Upper Bay with her barge.

I can’t make out the barge name.

Here’s Kristy Ann light, just leaving the fuel dock.

The new tug is rated at 4560hp and the hull is 110′ x 33.’

Her twin, Josephine, I’ve yet to see close up.
