Newest Hull in the Sixth Boro 9

Kudos to Allen Baker for catching this boat coming through, and as of Friday morning she’s still in the boro even though she’s headed for Norfolk, I believe. Have a look at her and see if you can tell any differences between this new boat and a long evolutionary string of Moran boats depicted here […]

Retro Sixth Boro 23

Coastline Girls and many other names including Gage Paul Thornton and  ST-497, the 1944-build now sleeps deep in Davy Jones locker,  and was not an intentional reefing. It’s been a while since I last saw Mcallister Sisters, shown here passing the Esopus Meadows light.  If I’m not mistaken, she’s currently based in Baltimore. Ten years […]

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 […]

Let’s start with a Jupiter (1990) in Galveston, thanks to Allen Baker.  The photo was taken about a year ago, after Hurricane Harvey. Next, thanks to Lisa Kolibabek, another Jupiter, a much older one, which recently went into dry dock in Philadelphia.   Know the date of launch? Compare her frontal view with that of […]

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 […]

. ..  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 […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 . . . […]

These photos come thanks to Allen Baker, whose most recent photos you saw here. I’ll just use his description:  “Heading east in the Long Island Sound on 27 December, just an incredible sky looking aft as we made our way east…. Tangier Island heading across the upper bay with the lower Manhattan skyline as a […]
