It’s back, and with reconstruction complete, training can begin.  To see how the new pilot boat got to this point, see updates here from May and August 2020.  For a glimpse of the 1972 vessel this one replaces, click here.   The 1972 pilot boat measures 155′ x 28′;  this rebuilt 1993 OSRV measures 210′ x 46,’ so this is a massively larger boat.

For today’s post, enjoy these spectacular shots Bjoern of New York Media Boat got as she transited a rainy sixth boro yesterday evening.

Many thanks to Bjoern for permission to share these photos.

Meanwhile, keep your eyes turned toward the harbor and you may catch the new No. 1 with the old.
