Other Peoples Photos 97

Thanks to Tony A and a new contributor, Ray M, here is more on the dispersal of the Bouchard fleet.  One boat has been renamed William F. Fallon Jr.  Know the boat?  Know the reference?  I’d say William F. Fallon Jr. is the newest name in the sixth boro. Tony A sent the photo above […]

June Thirtyfirst

Happy Canada Day to our neighbors to the north, where half my relatives come from. I barely saw the sixth boro this June, so I had to catch up a bit, adding another day to the month to do so.  Over by the Bayonne Centerline yard, I saw three previously Bouchard boats all wearing or […]

Canal Tug Project L

In the background on the river, with exhaust emanating from each of the corners, what is that!!!?   Above you’re looking at the stern of a truly unique towboat launched in the summer of 1940, Cargill’s successor to Protector and Carbany.  Below, that’s the stern of Carbany and the bow of that unique vessel,  a […]

Dana Alexa is another seldom seen tugboat in the sixth boro of NYC; although painted DonJon blue, she’s now a Breakwater Marine boat, I believe. It was good to see the 1958 54′ boat with a barge of what appears to be sheet piling. William F. Fallon Jr. has appeared here several times recently. Robert […]

Really Random Tugs 49

Call this the seldom-seen version of RRT.  I love that blue and the name on this 1954 tugboat. Kenny G …. I caught her tied up on the south side of Hudson River Pier 25, but by the time I got back there, Kenny G had moved tow elsewhere.  And here are a few maybe […]

Canal Tug Project L 2

Cargill’s Carneida and her sisters were unique enough, forgotten enough designs that when I stumbled onto this image yesterday AFTER posting, I decided to dedicate a whole post to Cargill’s vessels on the Barge Canal. The resemblance to the cargo portion of the 1000-footers currently on the Lakes is unmistakable although she’s less than a […]

Denise Rubia Adeline

The other day I was on the OBX near Hatteras, and when I checked who was passing by at sea,  I noticed an Adeline Marie.  I had to look at the image because it was an unfamiliar name. When I saw this boat along the KVK on Saturday, I wondered who it was, since the […]

Retro Sixth Boro 45 B

Let’s have another look at photos in the sixth boro during the first month of 2012.  It was a snowy day that I caught Cheyenne and Franklin Reinauer. Cheyenne is now in Wisconsin, for sale, and Franklin is still in this boro. Thomas Dann had a crane barge over alongside New Century.  Thomas Dann had […]

J. George Betz and Morton Bouchard Jr. raft up on the floating dock. Helen Laraway pushes toward the east. JRT passes Weddell Sea on the way home after completion of another job. Daisy Mae moves a deeply loaded scow westbound.  I’m not certain but believe the product is road salt. Discovery Coast heads over toward […]

Truckster! 21

I just love driving the backroads, keeping two eyes on the roads, and my third eye or two scanning for the unusual and interesting. It seems that I’m not the only one, Lewis Cobb Jr. spotted this starved figurehead on a late model Freightliner Cascadia? Early 1950s Studebaker towtruck? 1953 Chevrolet Suburban?   This one […]
