It’s October 1, and travel on we do, in this case, back in time exactly a decade.  Waterford was still recovering from Hurricane Irene, and farther upriver, that recovery would go on for at least half a decade.

Reinauer Twins was recently completed, and WTC1 had a long ways to go.

This 1929 trawler was patrolling the waters over by the Statue.  This has to be one of the best government boat-to-yacht conversions I’ve seen.  Fred tug44 profiled it here.

Beware the arm monster that lurks below.  Who knows . . . it could have been a very hungry mermaid or her sister Sedna approaching the unsuspecting kayaker . . .

This beautiful bar, which did need some cleaning up, disappeared

when Binghamton met its crusher fate. The process also was hastened by Irene.

Pride of Baltimore II passed the Statue, as did

this unnamed yawl keeping some water

on its starboard rail.  I never did figure out what yawl this was.

There’ll be a part B.  Guess which vessel had this helm.

Unrelated, have you seen this footage taken by a sailing drone inside Hurricane Sam?
