By now you’ve seen a trend in several posts . . . my showing you what my eyes want to misperceive.  Does this not look like a tug with a heaping deckload on a barge?   I took the shot Sunday in the rain, camera protected by an umbrella.   Precipitation diffuses the subject.

A minute later, what is approaching has become more apparent.

It’s Gargano, which I’ve watched for a spell now on AIS. Built in 2002, she’s been transformed from an OSV to a wind farm construction support vessel.   Read more here.

Her crew was catching some photos from the underside of the VZ Bridge here.

 

For relative size, that’s Capt. Brian A. McAllister, 

at the Narrows to meet what was not a barge at all.   The “barge” in the top photo was Maersk Kowloon.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who just learned that Gargano is the location of a wind farm off the east coast of Italy.

Alternate classification for this post could be under “specialized” or “whatzit“.
