Indulge me a little misdirection first..  So you suppose the Hughes 130 is loaded with ferry fuel?

I thought the tug here is Little C, but this one is too small.  Anyone identify?

Eastern Dawn is a regular in the sixth boro, and

[oh, go back to the top photo and you’ll see Eastern Dawn with a fuel barge] and the other morning I discovered an answer to a long-standing question I had.  Do those fuel barges with names like “No. 5” and “No. 6”  ever move?

The answer is . . . I caught Eastern Dawn move in with a barge and then transfer fuel from it to

to the stationery barges next to the ferry terminal on the Staten Island side.

Hook it up and pump the fuel into the barge until it gets pumped again . . . into the the ferry tank.

All photos and speculation, WVD.  Below is another recent photo of Eastern Dawn with its barge–Port Chester–light.
