Timo Pajunen took this photo back in 2010.  Here are my questions for you:  whose livery?  what mission?  what was McArthur‘s original mission?  I’ll answer at the end of the post. Charles Ritchie took this.  Hawk YTL-153 has fine pedigree:   in 1941, she was built and launched in Pearl Harbor and was present during the […]

Strait of Canso Traffic

Guess the usage? Avalon Sea is an AHTS vessel of the sort I’ve not seen call in the sixth boro.  Any guesses on usage, age, and dimensions of the unit?   If it reminds you of the various semi-submersible vessels that’ve called here, great, because that’s what Boabarge 37 is.  It measures 499′ x 125′  […]

To Bayway, from Point Tupper

You saw a different version of this photo last week, NS Leader being assisted into Bayway.  This begs the question . . .  from where did NS Leader come?  Where did it take on the cargo discharged at Bayway? The answer for NS Leader and lots more crude tankers is Point Tupper NS, where there’s […]

Jack Ronalds took this photo of Ontario (Jeffrey K. McAllister) and Erie (Missy McAllister) in Canso back in August 2016. John Jedrlinic took this in the sixth boro in December 2008. I took the photo below a few months earlier in 2008, as the transfer from Normandy to Ross Sea was happening. Grouper has been featured here […]

Millville and 1964 at the Canso Lock

Canso Canal separates the Nova Scotia mainland from Cape Breton Island, lying between Northumberland Strait to the north and Chedabucto Bay to the south.  And it’s a great place to watch traffic between eastern USA and the Great Lakes.  Jack Ronalds pays attention to that traffic, and is always eager to accept paying photo commissions, he […]

Atlantic Enterprise

Finally . . . Atlantic Enterprise and I get close-up, and it’s appropriate that it should happen over by Bergen Point, where I had an encounter with Atlantic Salvor so many years ago. When I heard VTS mention her on the VHF, I was hoping she was light or towing on the wire.  No matter, […]

San Jose

Under wraps last summer, this new build in Cleveland was ready for the intended client, but  . . . “we have a problem” finalizing the deal, so there had to be another deal. So finally a month ago, San Jose got under way from Cleveland getting through the Saint Lawrence and around Nova Scotia bound for […]
