Many thanks to my friend Lew who sent along the next two photos of MNI (Mohawk Northeast Inc.) boats. Michael is a 2004 Bayou La Batre build, 71′ x 28′ and bringing 2100 hp to the job.  Previously, I’d seen MNI tug Swift, with its unique yellow livery, in the sixth boro. 

Lew also got this photo of Judy M (57′ x 22′ and 1200 hp) and Bridgeport (82′ x 28′ and 2400 hp).  Tug Bridgeport used to be a regular in the boro as a Gateway boat, but this is the only the second time I see her in MNI yellow. Before the Bridgeport moniker, she was known as Dragon Lady.

I saw Copper Mountain in Tampa Bay this summer, and got photos, but they must be among ones OBE (overcome by events) and I’ve not posted them yet;  Tony A caught her light.  Note she’s a triple engined boat and large:  116′ x 38′ and 6000 hp.

Tony also sends this next batch along.  Name the tug below?

Here’s context . . .  lots more boats:  Vulcan III (I think), Iron Salvor, HJ Reinauer, Caspian Dawn, and Shelby Rose to the right. 

Here, with Diane B in the background, is a better profile of Caspian Dawn, which with her 73′ x 26′ dimensions and 2380 hp spent most of her life on the west coast.  To me, her lines say west coast, not unlike Lynx.

Many thanks to Lew and Tony for sending along these photos.  Any errors, WVD.
