Thanks to Jed 10

Many thanks to John Jedrlinic for sending along these photos, and thereby piquing my interest in the Kiel Canal.  At just over 60 miles with draft of 31′ and airdraft of 131′, it strikes me as a model of what could have been with the almost equally-long Delaware and Raritan (D&R) Canal.  The Kiel Canal […]

Another tug Jed photographed in Rotterdam is Jaro II. The 1990 Damen STAN 2909 appears to have a stop in the Netherlands after having worked in the Dutch Antilles and before going to Portugal.   Unlike a lot of Damen STAN products, Jaro II was built in the Netherlands.   Thanks much, Jed.     […]

Jed–John Jedrlinic–has been busy, but recently he sent some photos from Rotterdam. ALP Winger is a huge anchor-handling tug:  213′ 59′ x 25′ He got these photos in Rotterdam, but the boat is currently in the Azores. With her five mains, she generates over 18000 horsepower.   This is definitely a boat for a niche. […]

It’s been a while since I posted any of Jed’s shots, but I hold them to concentrate them rather than posting them one or two  at a time. Anyhow, of the photo below, Jed writes:  “[Atlas 1974] is my first Estonian tug . . . .” although this photo shows her in Dutch waters. Esvagt […]

I’m off gallivanting around NYC and getting more Fleet Week photos, so I’m happy to put up some more of John Jedrlinic’s photos. Let’s start with an unusual angle . . . it’s Smit Indusbank, built 1968 in the Netherlands. Pelican II seems to have started life on the Vistula River, upstream from Gdansk, in […]

Over the past few years, John Jedrlinic aka “Jed” has shared a lot of photos he’s taken near Norfolk, which is great since otherwise I’d never have seen some of these.  Take Huntington, below, apparently the in-house tug of the shipyard in Newport News. Or McAllister Boys, I’ve no idea which foreign port she works out […]

Here was the first post in this series. Jed took these in the Chesapeake a few years back.   I believe that’s TSH dredge Liberty Island on the far side of freight barge Columbia Elizabeth.   Prime mover here is Katie G. McAllister, which appeared here almost two years ago. Donal G. McAllister is another […]

Thanks to Jed

… John Jedrlinic, that is.  Jed has sent along quite a few photos, some of which you can see here. I believe all these photos were taken in Baltimore in September 2011.  I’ve been to Baltimore, but I’ve never seen a Krause tug.  More of my photos from Baltimore here, and maybe I should head […]
