When Ellen intruded onto my shot of Jonathan C assisting Amstel Stork around Bergen Bend, I first thought she had blown my shots of the assist, but yesterday’s post gave me an idea . . . .  And now that I mention yesterday’s post, here’s another large ATB to throw into the comparison, one that carries 214,000 gallons of fuel.

Compare them.  So here goes:  Ellen entered service in 1967, came to NYC in 2001 and measures 102′ x 29 with fuel capacity of 20,000 gallons.  Currently she brings 4000 hp to her assists.

Jonathan C came off the ways and to the sixth boro in 2016 and the tape calls her at 89′ x 38.”  Her engines generate 6000 hp, drawing from 40,000 gal tanks.

I have earlier photos of Jonathan C, but here’s one from over two years ago.

And since Ellen pre-dates my time in the sixth boro, here’s one I took over 10 years ago.
