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 […]

Thanks to Tony A and a new contributor, Ray M, here is more on the dispersal of the Bouchard fleet.  One boat has been renamed William F. Fallon Jr.  Know the boat?  Know the reference?  I’d say William F. Fallon Jr. is the newest name in the sixth boro. Tony A sent the photo above […]

We’ll go back to Albert Gayer‘s 1950s Barge Canal photos soon, but today it’s back to some 2022 sixth boro shots from Tony A. Any guesses on what Osprey is moving on that deck barge?  I’ll share my thoughts at the end of the post.  Here’s a new boat for the sixth boro . . […]

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 […]

“Call me Capt. Anon or Krunch or Nemo or Underpants (which in French might be slip [pronounced “sleep”*] capitaine or . .  . ) no matter.” I am grateful for the perspective provided by these photos.  So, thank you cap.  These were taken from the same  boat over the past month or so, which speaks […]
