With momentum gaining for more offshore wind farms, a raft of seldom-seen type vessels make port calls in the sixth boro.  This photo from Tony Acabono is an excellent example:  Geosea is not new, but she’s surely exotic. Another from Tony, Berto L. Miller is new in town, joining two other Miller OSVs sometimes here, […]

75 was in Paris, so let’s stay there.  Many thanks to Lew for these photos from Paris. Moving cargo on European rivers brings with it a very different lifestyle.  For starters, check out the Opel automobile nestled rear starboard abaft the house of Belcanto.  I posted many cars on barges before, as here, second photo. […]

This post was inadvertently launched last week but I re-boxed it.  I received these photos more than a year ago from Jonathan Steinman, who has shared many other photos here.  Can you guess where these photos were taken?   There’s a significant clue in clear view.   Titanic might not be an auspicious name for […]

Some time ago, I posted photos of small craft including one not-so-small Florida Bay Coaster (FBC).  Since then, I learned that the FBC is called SAILS and operated for many sea miles by a gentleman named Jay Wigginton, whose blog you can read here. Many thanks to Jay for sharing a set of photos from his […]

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 […]

Here are the previous 70. I’m very happy to share these photos from Ray Sup, the digital Marketing Specialist/Webmaster at Beyel Brothers.  Megan Beyel came through the sixth boro almost two weeks ago bound for sea.  This is outbound at least her second trip;  the first time she was caught by Tim Hetrick here. The Indiana-built […]

I’m still working to catch up and photos some of you have sent. First, from Scotland and Robin Denny, it’s Seal Carr (1983) and Oxcar, 1978 and looking almost like the USACE colors.  They’re working MV Saga Pearl 11 out of Firth of Forth, port of Edinburgh. From Port Newark and Phil Porteus, it’s scrap . […]

In my effort to catch up on shared photos, let me start with one I’ve heard about for a few years but never seen yet. Al Circeo shared these next two over a month ago.  Is this tug still over at Mariners Harbor?  Does anyone know what her owners plan for her? At one point […]

All these photos come from Christine Douglas, who frequents areas along the Calumet River. Pere Marquette 41 and Undaunted . . . I’ve seen in the distance several times each of the past two years.  This is why I was excited when I saw Christine’s photos of the unit close up in the Calumet river. […]
