KVK Dawn 7

Here were previous iterations of this title, as well as here, an AK Sunrise.  If this effort were for a work published when complete, inconsistencies like dawn v. sunrise would be aligned, but this has always been a work in progress, a wandering that could end at any time. So yesterday morning I was at […]

KVK Concatenation 2

Where’s there’s a “1”, a “2” must follow, right?  Let’s start with Brendan Turecamo on the starboard side of APL Dublin. Enter a Maersk ship with Bruce tendering the port side. APL Dublin has Kirby on the stern. Gerda has Capt. Brian A. on her stern, and Patrice and Ava.  That makes a total of […]

KVK Concatenation 1

Excuse the obscure word; it’s not one I regularly use, but concatenation, i.e., a series of interconnected things or events, random and unlikely ever to recur, came to mind as I put together this set of photos.  Follow along.  Early one morning recently, Kristin Poling made up to a loaded Eva Leigh Cutler, and Normandy […]

KVK Dawn 6

Steve Munoz took the first three photos in October 1986 from Borenquin.  The tug identified as Kathryne E. McAllister appears to be the one from 1975, now known as Brendan Turecamo.  Borenquin lived many lives between launching in Vancouver WA in 1945 and scrapping in Beihei CH (near the northeastern border of Vietnam) in 1989. […]

KVK Dawn 5

All these photos were taken in this order yesterday between 0647 and 0704 EDT.  CMA CGM T. Roosevelt was bound for sea.  As of this moment, she’s off Norfolk waiting to enter the Chesapeake.  If you don’t know, Roosevelt is one of now quite a large number of ULCSs or ULCVs [I’ve read both terms […]

KVK Dawn 4

This light is available for only a few minutes twice a day but then only if the rising or setting sun is not cloud covered.  Humidity existed the other morning too, in advance of the impending rain.  I’m not sure why, but late winter/early spring light seems richer as well, although that may be related […]

Random Tugs 323

Enjoy more late afternoon photos here . . .  like Alexandra, passing in front of a number of cranes, both on the water, near the water, and atop buildings. Ava transits the Con Hook Range, with three East River bridges in the background. Miriam heads in the direction of the Bayonne Bridge, with two Arthur […]

Small Craft 27

I caught this small open boat eastbound on the KVK. She passed Ernest Campbell.  Clearly by her markings, she’s a survey vessel.  Between traffic, they seemed to focus their work near the transition between the KVK and the ConHook Range . . . returning to their area of interest, as I said, between traffic. Work […]

Poling and Cutler 3

Let’s start with a routine KVK scene:  l to r, an orange tanker with a neon green stack, a Poling unit, and escort tug Ava M. Compare Fort Schuyler‘s  green and Kimberly Poling‘s green.  But then the frame contains only Kimberly and Kristin. It’s possible that Kimberly was going to do an assist for her […]

Whitherward Pegasus 2021

Posting twice in a day means either good news . .  or not so good.  Many thanks to Luke Gayson for sending me this shot of the 1907 Pegasus taken in the KVK this morning. If you do FB, here’s a link to the project. From the tugster archives, here was a flag of concern from 2015. […]
