Thanks to Jed 8

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. […]

The first three come thanks to Steve Munoz . . .  HMS Bounty heading up the North River in May 1998. Taken November 2001, it’s Adventure of the Seas heading upriver with an diverse escort.  Given the date, this would have been her maiden voyage into the sixth boro of NYC.  John D. McKean and […]

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.     […]

Random Tugs 300 Extension

I found it hard to move on from the #300 mile marker, so let me offer up another set, with some of your generous contributions. Thanks to John “Jed” Jedrlinic, two tugboats from Tahiti, Aito Nui and Aito Nui II.   My machine translator tells me the name means “champions of the universe.” Aito Nui, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Really Random Tugs 36

Really random means photos from widely separated places by different people.  So here goes . . . the first two from Jed, who took them in the former Dutch Antilles about a year ago.  Triton is home-ported in Ijmuiden, another must-see place in the Netherlands if you’re interested in workboats.

This post follows on one I did seven and a half years ago, here. The first photo–Donna J. with B. No. 272— comes thanks to Jed, whose Caribbean tugs you may recently have seen here.   Donna J. is moved by two EMD R20-710G7C-T3 generating 10,000 hp.  Also notable is her fuel capacity of 301,504 gallons […]
