The first time I used this title, although with a pretentious spelling, was here, more than 12 years ago, a collaboration I immediately liked.  This year I’ve posted quite a few, especially in the first three months of 2022, all related to the Barge Canal.  Here’s one I’ve not posted.  I wish more text existed […]

Many thanks to my friend Lew who sent along the next two photos of MNI (Mohawk Northeast Inc.) boats. Michael is a 2004 Bayou La Batre build, 71′ x 28′ and bringing 2100 hp to the job.  Previously, I’d seen MNI tug Swift, with its unique yellow livery, in the sixth boro.  Lew also got […]

Some things you can only see from the water, like these exquisite sights recently sent along by Capt. Sunbeams.  An illustration for “smoke on the water, fire in the sky” i.e., sailing on the Delaware while pushing something along to earn a living. Meanwhile there’s lots to see like a cooling tower, Genesis Victory and […]

Divemasters MV Atlantic Surveyor came into Tony A’s lens the other day.  Click here for some of the diverse projects this boat has been involved with.  Kapitein Rob caught a few tugboats in the foggy west end of Long Island Sound last week:  Mister T and Navigator. Tony A caught this view of Pacific Reliance […]

Thanks to Tony A, behold Patriot Marine’s Mulberry, still in the USAV livery from when she was ST-914.  Photos are from New Haven, a port I’ve not visited, and with those raked masts . . . that appears to be Amistad along the shore in the distance. I’ve looked unsuccessfully online for a list of […]

I’m always so grateful when folks send me photos, especially like all of these.  Tony A catches all kinds of boats I miss, like Anne-Sofie earlier this month in Albany.  I’m not sure what the cargo in and/or out was, but these SAL vessels get around.   Does anyone know if that “float” center just under […]

Quick, name that boat. It’s appeared on this blog before.  She appeared here before as Charles Burton, but now . . .  meet Helen! Cape Hatteras (1967) and Eugenie Moran (1966) have recently appeared over by Prall’s Island, regular spot for tugboats being prepared for reefing.   I caught Eugenie in Portsmouth NH over a […]

Let’s start with a photo by John “Jed” Jedrlinic, one of Alp Forward, currently off the eastern Scottish coast. She’s a 213′ x 61′ anchor handling tug from 2007  with over 200 tons bollard pull. From there, let’s go to the Connecticut in US coast and some local boats with  some Seakite by PanGeo Subsea […]

I could call this “from the Astorian cliffs high above the East River near Hell Gate” . . . photos by Pete Ludlow. Remember this post from January . . . ? Here are shots from the starboard side, and with all those tanks, I’d say this confirms that that is a hyperbaric chamber getting […]

Thanks to Bjoern of New York Media Boat, it’s  . . .  LCU 1657.  This was last week, March 2022 At first glance I thought it was a landing craft with a large add-on wheelhouse.  Later I noticed the landing craft was being pushed by a small tugboat named Pierson.  I’m not familiar with this […]
