Years ago [in 2008] I caught a mega-Bouchard tug in the KVK.  It was Danielle M., now Rebekah Rose.

But yesterday I saw the much newer sister of the boat from 2008.  Escorted into the Arthur Kill by Ellen McAllister and another tug,

and pushing RCM 270, a 250,000 bbl barge, it was

the massive 144′ x 44′ and 10,000 hp tugboat

wearing the livery and stack logo of Rose Cay Maritime.

 

Welcome

Lynne M. Rose.  Check the spelling.

According to AIS, she made a six-day eighteen-hour trip to the sixth boro from Corpus Christi, a port I’ve yet to visit, although I will only go there in winter months.

Any errors and all photos, WVD.

While doing this post, I came to realize I’d seen this very boat before, back on December 1, 2021 here

and here at the Bollinger yard in Algiers, LA.

Enjoy this contrasting parting shot.
