Apologies for sitting on these photos fo so long, but today’s the day to put them up.  The previous 72 can be found here. From Mage, long-time reader and commenter . . ..  the sailing vessel below is proclaimed as the “world’s oldest active sailing ship.”  I’d go along with that, since I can’t name […]

This large gray vessel–SS Cape Avinoff (AK-5013)–arrived under tow from, I believe, National Defense Reserve Fleet on the James River, where it has been used for training. As SS Cape Avinoff is moved stern first closer […]

From Port Newark and Phil Porteus, it’s scrap . […]

Here are previous installments. Let’s start with a shot from Oswego.  To me, it captures the magic of the Canal in that city and the stately buildings that surround it.  The photo is by Jennifer Mays, who calls it “Old man Winter is on his way #headedsouth #oswegocanal.  It shows research vessel DelMor (ex-Kaho) upbound in […]

Let’s start with a Jupiter (1990) in Galveston, thanks to Allen Baker.  The photo was taken about a year ago, after Hurricane Harvey. Next, thanks to Lisa Kolibabek, another Jupiter, a much older one, which recently went into dry dock in Philadelphia.   Know the date of launch? Compare her frontal view with that of […]

Thanks to Jeff, who caught Lucy H moving an oversize cargo through a sylvan stretch of Canal.  Recently Lucy H brought Ward’s Island across more than half the Erie Canal. Thanks to Maureen, who caught these shots of two tugboats moving a Celebrity ship through the busy harbor of Venezia.  Here, here, and here are […]

I appreciate it when folks send in photos they’ve taken.  Sharing photos is one of the joys of the Internet. Here from Ashley Hutto, Mister Jim pushing five barges, upbound through the Highlands.  If you could swivel the camera to the right, you’d be looking at West Point.  I love the reality-defying lens. The next […]
