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 for sending photos along.  Capt. Jack Aubrey sent this along from Baltimore.  He says, “The ship name and the assembled team almost looks set up.   L to R: Eric, Timothy and Bridget McAllister.”  It really does.  I’ll bet Pretty Team could travel all the English-speaking ports of the world and highlight all the great […]

Credit for all here goes to Sea Bart aka Zee Bart, which means the same thing.  He writes:  “When we moored in the Lekhaven in Rotterdam in August 2021 I saw a seemingly abandoned tugboat moored called Dynami, had some list, no lights on,  etc. etc.    During the following weeks we noticed more and more […]

I suddenly have a full hopper of photos from readers like you.  Thanks.  Let’s start with a photo of these two boats from Tony A taken on October 29. Yesterday, November 3, I got this photo from Dan Horton showing how things are trending.  My wager is that by now the red on Evening Star […]

Since we’ve had some extreme weather, how about a different type of extreme . . .  with NYC DEP sludge tanker Red Hook approaching the unique Riverbank State Park, one of three state parks within Manhattan, the one with a wastewater treatment plant beneath it.  I’ve just read that it’s now renamed the Denny Farrell […]
