Note:  This morning early while having coffee, I was planning a post for today and tomorrow.  Mistakenly, since coffee had not yet kicked in, I hit “post” instead of “schedule.”  Oops!  Well, enjoy these two posts, this and the Weddell Sea one.

These are interesting graphics.

I know of three boats called Tugnacious, but only one currently in NY waters just outside the sixth boro.  The other two are in Maine and the Chesapeake.

 

This is the only one with unique graphics, even on the jack.

The Nordhavn 7626 is a beauty.

Registry on the stern shows Oyster Bay NY.  Welcome home.

All photos, WVD, who is inspired to start a poem like “Whose yacht this is I think I know, His boats bear new names though, ” . . . like Caitlin Ann and Siberian and Greenland . . ..    Previous Nordhavns on this blog can be found here, although this is the first 7626.

For more photos of Tugnacious, not mine, click here.

 

 

You’ve seen this boat right in this location two years ago here.

And yet to see her pirouette around, waiting for “sail time,” was a treat.  She’s fairly new boat, 2007, 105′ x 38′ and twin CAT 3516Bs generating 4800hp.

Someone may have been learning the drift, the current.

Finally, show time came and she was on her way, Penn No. 2, quite light.  Since the barge is designed for black oil/asphalt, I’m guessing the boilers are shut off.  Maybe not, since that would allow a film of residue to cake on.  Maybe someone can help me out here.

She heads out alongside, but

the wire is already rigged for a quick evolution.

Once clear of the Kills, she went on the wire and out to sea.

All photos, WVD.
