Cheyenne 3

Previous posts of Cheyenne can be found here.  But I think she never looked better than she did northbound between Fulton and Minetto the other day. The Oswego Canal/River might be the narrowest wilds she’ll be in for a bit. The waterfowl wheeled around to catch glimpses. I look forward to seeing on the inland […]

Cheyenne 2

Here was the first post with this title, from almost 9 years ago!  But for the first image of Cheyenne, I can go back to February 2007 here. Anyhow, less than a half hour after leaving the dock in Port Newark, she rounds the bend near Shooters Island, departs the modified Bayonne Bridge, exits the […]

Cheyenne

Search either Cheyenne or her sister Crow in the box upper left and you’ll see how often they’ve appeared in this blog.  I took both fotos here last week, Tuesday and Sunday, and over 150 miles apart.  The first one shows a Cheyenne shrunk beneath the cliffs of lower Manhattan, light and moving with purpose, […]

CB9

Call this Ambassador Bridge Detroit to Lake St. Clair, the sixth Great Lake.  For starters at sunrise, it’s Argentia Desgagnes.   Offloading coal at USSteel, it’s Clyde S. Van Enkvort, formerly a DonJon tug. Here’s a waterside view of Cheyenne. Upclose to the Detroit Jazz Fest, it’s Lake Guardian and Escanaba, WMEC-907. Farther north, it’s Bristol […]

CB8

This is Toledo to Detroit . . .and we start with Bessie B  making her way out toward the mouth of the Maumee River. Laid up . . . it’s Manistee. This post is geographically arranged . . . otherwise, I’d put this first.  Tug Wisconsin used to be America, launched 1897!! This ferry is […]

Algoway Goes Away

She was still self-propelled and earning cargo credit in September 5, 2017, when I saw her near Mackinac Island . . .   Ditto two days later in windsor and a bit later she was running down bound past Wyandotte, allowing me a close-up of her oxidation. But today, thanks to Fred Miller II for […]

Random Tugs 187

Thanks to Jonathan Steinman, who once a week has a moment to look out his window at work, here’s an angle on Kimberly Poling showing a weight bench just behind the wheelhouse.   In pleasant weather, that must make a great gym. Chandra B meets Morton Bouchard Jr with the Goethals Bridge–old and new–as backdrop. […]

Other People’s Photos 58

Here’s a short but motley set of photos.  Can you identify the tug below sporting the Canadian flag?  Answer follows. Below it’s Barry Silverton, pushing Fight ALS eastbound on the East River.   Big Allis identifies the location, where Don Jon folks/equipment have recently placed the platforms to the lower right side of the photo. […]

Really Random Tugs 31

Yesterday’s post led with Jared S aka Cheyenne II, and so I’m grateful to Jason LaDue for sending along a photo he took before she sank into the Genesee River, where she still lies. This next photo was taken by Renee Lutz Stanley, recently, as Pelham assisted the dead but lively Frying Pan to Caddell for some […]

Really Random Tugs 30

Really random means just that . . . and here are previous posts in the series. So–thanks to Harry Thompson– let’s start with this assemblage . . . barge Amy B, Evelyn assist on the far side, but prominent is the 1941 Bushey built Jared S–ex-Cheyenne II, Sally Carroll, and Martin J. Kehoe. The closest I […]
