I’ve mentioned before here that I used to freshwater fish, a lot.  Canoe fishing at daybreak was the best, although there were days when nothing seemed alive in places where other days the waters fizzed with life and I could have several meals of fish in the boat before most people were awake.  The same could be said about sitting in certain places along the sixth boro.  This happened the other morning.  First Pelham left the dock.  

Just east of the salt pile she passed Treasure Coast, which was just more than stemming at two or so knots.

 

After pirouetting for a while just off Atlas Yacht Club, she spun back eastward and I thought she was going to refuel.   Adjacent to Treasure Coast are ATBs Galveston and Ruth M. Reinauer. I was introduced  to US Shipping back in 2008 with their ITB Philadelphia here, here, and here.

And we’ll pick things up there tomorrow.

All photos, WVD.

Related:  File this under the “I heard that but didn’t process it at the time” heading:  US Shipping Corp was acquired by Seacor almost a year ago.  Seacor is quite the diverse shipping company.  I recall last late summer was busy, and I didn’t come to understand that fact until now.  US Shipping has maintained their white/red/green livery.

Tangentially related:  Want to see a tugboat “constructed” in a 10-minute video?  Check out this video from Ocean Groupe from Canada.

Clearly unrelated but FUN:  Check out this live-eel barge . . .  it transports live eels!  Thx, Phil.
