Other Peoples Photos 99

I could call this “from the Astorian cliffs high above the East River near Hell Gate” . . . photos by Pete Ludlow. Remember this post from January . . . ? Here are shots from the starboard side, and with all those tanks, I’d say this confirms that that is a hyperbaric chamber getting […]

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 […]

Three Tankers

This Odfjell tanker has 47 tanks! I took this recently along the KVK.   Today the 1998 tanker is in the Mississippi River heading for New Orleans. Guess the age here? She’s just two years old, launched in January 2019.  Elandra Willow has departed for the next job, but this morning Elandra Oak arrived in the […]

Happy Independence Day Cargo

The photo below I took on January 19, 2017.  What does it possibly have to do with July 4, 2021? Do you recall the questions at the end of this post from not quite a month ago? I quote from the Moran FB page:  “Lady Liberty’s ‘Little Sister’ departed France on June 23rd, taking the […]

Thanks to Steve Munoz 20

Steve’s uncle Bob was a captain and pilot on the Dalzelleagle/McAllister Bros from 1968 to 1985.  That makes for a special connection and lots of vintage photos.  Enjoy these thanks to Steve.  I’ll use his captions. Dalzelleagle assisting ship in East River in September 1968. Dalzelleagle heading down Buttermilk Channel-from pier 12 Brooklyn in September 1970. […]

Sixth Boro Sampler 3

Gene Chaser appears to be a sister of Ad-Vantage, which appeared here a year and a half ago.  Click on the link at the beginning of the first sentence and you’ll see some interior shots of this 55-meter yacht support vessel. At some point, yacht support vessel Ad-Vantage was available for charter for a mere […]

Retro Sixth Boro 45 A

Why does time pass so quickly?!  As if it were just a few years ago, I recall this Wilmington NC stop on the road trip return from family in Georgia.   I was surprised by the amount of traffic in this Cape Fear River port, like Margaret McAllister here passing Corpus Christi with Petrochem Supplier. Margaret […]

2020 Calendar July and August

Yes, I missed doing this in July, so today I play catch-up. Three vessels were on the July page.  First, it’s Louis C, a small tanker reborn as a small crane ship.  I was last aboard her on a very cold morning in January 2020.  The enclosed workshop forward of the wheelhouse features a wood […]

From the Line Locker 28

Recently reefed . . .   Jane.  I took this photo from the Arthur Kill in September 2016. Built in 1939 at Pusey and Jones, she went from Jane to Adam J to Jacklyn to Erica to Jane . . . and now to the bottom as a fish house off Jones Beach NY;  she lies […]

Retro Sixth Boro 34 a

It’s January 31 or -1 February.  since it’s a short month, it needs another day.   The temperatures where I’ve been have been colder than -1 centigrade.  So let’s do it . . . photos from a decade ago, February 2010.  See the crewman in the netting dangling over the side of tanker Blue Sapphire?  He […]
