What’s wrong with me that after all these years and thousands of posts I’ve still to do one focused solely on this boat! 

She dates from 1970 and the long-lived Exxon fleet, and her lines are beautiful. So many of the dispersed Exxon fleet still toil on, especially in the sixth boro.

But Stephen . . . I’m not sure what she’s like to work on, but she always a pleasure to see for this bank sitter.

 

Excuse the blurry photo from September 3, 2006 . . . the tugboat race, I recall being astonished by the height from which the deckhand tossed the line, missing the cleat in this case. By the way, dimensions on the boat are 100′ x 31′ ….

Looking at the photos above and below has me wondering whether she’s had her pin arrangement modified in the 16 years between those two photos.

She came into IMTT the other morning to give Ruth M an assist.
