Ava M McAllister has assisted at least three ships already, and she’d been in the sixth boro less than  36 hours when i took these photos.

No doubt her largest so far was YM Wind, which she’s assisting here with her twin Capt. Brian A. Barely less than a year ago I missed the dual christening of Capt. Brian A. and Rosemary . . .

For scale, notice the orange-clad ship’s crew both above and below.

 

Capt. Brian A., Rosemary, and Ava M. are all 100′ x 40′ and powered by two 16-cylinder Tier IV Cat 3616E engines.

How new is she?  Check out the white hand-lettered numbers on the fendering just below the word McAllister.

Long and safe may she sail.
