A year and a half ago, I saw a small craft that I’d first misidentified.   No, of course it was not Atlantic Enterprise or 

Witte 4004, shown here

returning from the dump on a rainy morning.

But right outside the Staten Island side of the VZ Bridge, this small craft, the RIB, showed up, and again I wondered if it was the NY Media Boat Defender, which led me to wonder why

they moved in so close to the wire trailing from 

Atlantic Enterprise.

By now, even with naked eye,  I’d spotted the blue logo on the sliding door of the RIB.  It was a crew 

addition on the fly.

It’s a maneuver that used to make me queasy, just because I never got that good at it.

Well done.  Transfer complete, Enterprise throttles up.

They spin around, take the stern of 4004, and head back to the base.
