Meagan Ann

Click here for some of the many posts I’ve done on this boat since 2008, including one where she’s still Scorpius. Sunday morning Meagan Ann was headed to points North towing crane barge Columbia with a massive component that needs lifting at the Mystic Power Station in Massachusetts.     Here from September 2009 are […]

Newest Hull in the Sixth Boro 6

. . . or at least among the newest. Above,  the new Governors Island ferry–I am a bit late with this but had not seen it until a few days ago–and the previous one–Coursen–meet.  For a vintage photo of Coursen with a USCG bowstripe, click here. I believe it carries vehicles as well as passengers, […]

CB 2019 B

CB is obviously “Chicago bound.” Neither Thomas D. Witte nor Clearwater here off Mount Beacon is that, but we were. Meagan Ann headed south with used and abused cars on SMM 157 for the start of their last trip. James William pushed several loads of building materials southbound. Rebecca Ann turned around for her next trip. […]

Other Peoples Photos 61

You saw Lauren Foss in yesterday’s post here.  Here’s a followup, from sixth boro interiors I don’t get to much.  Richie Ryden writes:  “Look who showed up on the Hackensack River in Kearny NJ:   Lauren Foss with the barge American Trader in tow with the new deck for the Wittpenn Bridge. The bridge deck […]

Fog 17

Carl Sandburg said:  “The fog comes  . ..  on little cat feet. It sits looking  . . . over harbor and city . . . on silent haunches And then moves on.”   My unrehearsed version is :  “The old cat once . .  . patrolled the wharf Now it sits over the sunlight . . . and sheds […]

Thanks to JG 3

Click here and here for the first two sets of photos taken by JG.  JG’s photos–of the past–give context for the present and future. In today’s post, all of the vessels at one point belonged to the same fleet, except one.  All have continued in service, except one. Volans, photographed here in 2009, is now being […]

Random Tugs 159

If you have a lot of free time, you can trace this back to the first installment. These photos are all from the past week, starting out with Bouchard Boys, 1975. Pelham, 1960.  Behind her is USNS Red Cloud. Barney Turecamo (1995) and   Scott Turecamo (1998). Eric R. Thornton (1960) Jill Reinauer (1967) and Dace […]

Ice Season 2015 . . .

I hope it ends soon.  Of course, ice is just a part of the sixth boro cycle.  See the ice photos here from 2009.  Enjoy these shots from the last day of February 2015.  But for the hot days sure to come later this year, how about this tall tale of Meagan Ann traveling through […]

Pairs 5

Here was 4.  Pairings suggest to me springtime, and I certainly am ready for that to happen. Here a blindingly cold blue Meagan Ann departs the Kills with a team of scows Cape Sally and Cape Heane.  Are there really capes by these names? From back in January . . . it’s Chesapeake 1000 towed into […]
