This follows up a post from not quite two weeks ago here. Of course, this unidentified recreational craft–here with HMS Justice and Fort McHenry–is out for a morning to commune with the fish migrating through the boro.  More on fish soon.

I have to admit first off that I missed SV Vaquita sailing through, but you can catch the highlights and follow along on YouTube, produced by the same wit as TimBatSea, both of which are YT channels worth checking out. Vaquita made its way south of Norfolk through the Dismal Swamp canal. 

Ketch Manana from Nova Scotia was eyeing the KVK before heading out the VZ.

Asteria is a 52-year-old yacht.  Registered in Bikini, she actually has the stuff to get there.  I love the lines.

In recent days, I’ve seen her both in North Cove and out by the

the statue, here sending her tender out on a mission.

As this sloop came between Roosevelt Island and the UES, she caught my attention because

of the lines and the polished aluminum hull. 

It turns out she’s Pleione, an Alubat Cigale 16 that’s been around although registry is Boston.

Finch seemed to be worked by a solo sailor from Portsmouth NH that was handling sail only just outside the ferry routes.

And if these lines don’t catch your attention, nothing will.  Of course, it’s a Lord Nelson Victory Tug (LNVT) 37′ version.  You’ve seen the model before here . . .  as in Sally W.

As it turns out, Sally W is hull #42, and the boat on the East River three days ago is hull #48, aka

Edward S. Marvin, another New Hampshire boat, here quite diminished by the cliffs and bridges along Manhattan’s east side.

All photos, any errors, WVD, a contrarian who’s migrating north a bit next week.
