Capt. Brian A. McAllister

Thanks to Allen Baker, here are two “golden hour” photos of likely the newest ship-assist tug in the sixth boro, Capt. Brian A. McAllister.   Here’s my limited first view of the new McAllister, taken back in mid-August, right after she arrived. She’s mostly hidden by Eric, although this allows a profile comparison of the […]

Patapsco Watershed 3

It’s been a long time since I first used this title and here was 2 in the series.  I’ve been to Baltimore since but not to Fells Point, although I plan to remedy that before summer. And there is a change:  See the old City Pier building . .  it has very recently reopened as […]

Other People’s Fotos 56

Here was 55. Glenn Raymo took this photo in Germantown yesterday, the all-new Sarah D; previously I used these photos by Glenn.  Check out an example of one of many of his zazzle products here. Sarah D until very recently was Helen D. Coppedge.  Almost all these photos were taken by other people, but I add the […]

Government Boats 40

. ..  make that boats and ships.  Thanks to Allen Baker for sending along this set of T-AKR 294 Antares moving out of GMD back in January 2010.  Yup, some drafts get caught in an eddy and they spin round and round never getting posted.  But I’m a believer that late is better than never. Antares […]

From George Conk . . . it’s Ahoskie, taken in Rockland, Maine. from Jonathan Steinman, it’s Franklin Reinauer at sunrise on the East River, passing under–I guess-the Manhattan Bridge. From Allen Baker, earlier this week, it’s Eagle, once again in the sixth boro. From Bjoern Kils . . . it’s Kalmar Nyckle . . . taken […]

Post Post-Panamax Plus 2

Yesterday’s post showed a larger than average container vessel in the sixth boro, CMA CGM Pacific Link.  That post prompted Allen Baker to send along photos he took last month in San Francisco. Pacific Link‘s teu capacity was just over 8000;  CMA CGM Margrit‘s teu capacity is 13,102. CMA CGM Margrit used to be MSC Margrit. […]

Random Tugs 136

Curtis Bay Fells Point built 1956.  Taken 1987.  Click here for Fells Point with more of the fleet.   Scuttled in 2008 at Redbird Reef near the mouth of Delaware Bay. James Turecamo built 1969 . . . in my first 2015 photo of her.  In the dry dock directly between James and the WTC, it’s […]

Ice Work on the Hudson 2

Here was the first in the series five years ago.   Allen Baker took this photo of Thunder Bay last Friday near Newburgh.  Four thousand horsepower can get you nowhere sometimes in conditions like these.  It’s hard for me to believe I may never have posted a photo of WTGB 108 on this blog. Foreground . . . […]

Ice 5

Taken Feb 4 by Bjoern Kils . . . the spearhead. Taken this morning by bowsprite, the onslaught of frazil ice.  Is that Amy C. McAllister pushing the Bouchard barge? Anyone guess the light tug in front of Ellis Island? And taken yesterday by Allen Baker looking over the stern of Mediterranean Sea northward toward Albany, the […]

189 Ghost Ships 2

From over four years ago, here was the first post about this reserve fleet.  I’m excited about the discussion that has gone on in the comments.  I’m also hoping that this post generates more of you to search through your old family photos and post card collections . . . and share more photos of […]
