New Hulls, Lines, and Liveries

Flux.  “Everything changes and nothing remains still; and you cannot step twice into the same stream.”  Heraclitus said that, or maybe he did not, but I’ve attributed it to him before. Click here for the 1966 Charles Burton and the 2010 Charles Burton.  Above and below, that is the one from 2010, but the missing […]

Back in the Sixth Boro 4b

Heraclitus has to be the classical philosopher most referred to on this blog.  I thought of this person again as I returned into the city after my longest ever so far time away;  this is a familiar place of six boros, and yet it does not seem familiar.  It is new, renewed by multiple sunrises […]

Tugster Post 4000

Here were previous milestones at post 1000, the four-year mark, and the one decade anniversary.  A few weeks ago when I noticed on my dashboard that I was approaching my 4000th post a week or so after the actual beginning of the 13th year mark, I knew this post was necessary. 4000!!  It can be […]

Something Different 30

From this blog and blogger to you and yours . . . Happy Thanksgiving, today and everyday. As if it’s possible to say anything new, I am thankful that so any of you read this blog and communicate back by some means.  I am also thankful that I have the health and opportunity to get […]

Change

Some days more than others I’m only a bit more acutely aware of change.  Certainly this is true in the sixth boro if you watch it over time.    Name boards migrate from one vessel to another.  Actually, I’m told the foto above is Mary Gellatly the third, with the second below.  It appears the […]

Seven Seas 4

Note that I had to retitle yesterday’s post, because I had posted a “seven seas 2” two years ago already.  A conversation this week prompts yesterday’s and today’s post:  the K-Sea fleet in the sixth boro has been changing since their acquisition by Kirby last year.  But as Isaac Asimov and Heraclitus each in his […]

River Day 5

I still find it strange to call this Day 5 of River Day:  I’d feel better calling it hours 97 through 120 of the Day.  Regardless, Day 5 ended in the former capital of the state of New York, a city today of 22,000.  Saying Kingston lies about 80 miles north of the Battery does […]
