Whitherward Pegasus 2021

Posting twice in a day means either good news . .  or not so good.  Many thanks to Luke Gayson for sending me this shot of the 1907 Pegasus taken in the KVK this morning. If you do FB, here’s a link to the project. From the tugster archives, here was a flag of concern from 2015. […]

Assists 12

Quick . .  name those two tugs and barge? Here’s that same barge, and the previously obscured third tug, Pegasus. Is it possible that this is the first time I post photos of the 2015 Leigh Ann Moran?  My blog index tells me it is. A double assist gets her gently into the IMTT dock, […]

Christmas Eve 2021

Deck the hulls . . . the bell sound signal device and railings too. And I’ll leave that song right there.    Kimberly Turecamo has a wreath around the bell also, but consistent with the Kimberly crew, there’s more. Merry Christmas all . . . All photos, WVD. Here was last year’s M is for […]

Fog 25 B

Yesterday’s post ended with Timothy L. Sarah Ann, and Treasure Coast at different amounts obscured by the fog.  Treasure Coast spun around before my location to set Cement Transporter 7700 into the Lafarge North America Bayonne dock with assist by Pegasus.  I wondered about the vintage of Cement Transporter 7700;  she was launched from Todd […]

Happy Independence Day Cargo

The photo below I took on January 19, 2017.  What does it possibly have to do with July 4, 2021? Do you recall the questions at the end of this post from not quite a month ago? I quote from the Moran FB page:  “Lady Liberty’s ‘Little Sister’ departed France on June 23rd, taking the […]

Retro Sixth Boro 51 B

Ten years and two days ago, I heard Urger had arrived in town and had rafted up to Pegasus,  so I had to come down in the late afternoon and shoot this, setting sun just post-Mahattanhenge notwithstanding.   While there, I was asked to take close-up photos two days later of Urger at the Statue.  “Sure,” […]

Finished with Engines 2021

The year is in its last hours, and these vessels saw their last hours in this year as well.  Of course, this is a subjective list, made up of mostly photos I’ve taken over the years of sixth boro and Great Lakes vessels. This list is not definitive.  If you know of others, you might […]

Retro Sixth Boro 53

Alaska has the Iditarod, Quebec City has the ice canoe races, Honobia OK has the Bigfoot 5K and there’s still time to make plans to get there.  And sometimes, the sixth boro (and lots of other waterway cities) has tugboat races.   Enjoy this smattering of photos from Sept 2, 2012. As often is the case, […]

Retro Sixth Boro 51

Happy independence day.  While taking your coffee break, give this document signed by fallible but brave men 246 years ago a read…. I took these photos a decade ago on a memorable night in the sixth boro. Later I posted my first “illuminations” post, reprising language from one of the 56 signers of that document, […]

Random Tugs 362

Two separate parties sent me this article from the LA Times.  With a title including the phrase “humble tugboat,”  I was interested but not prepared for the fantastic photos.  Thx John and George.  Enjoy.  Meanwhile, here are some more of my recent photos. James D. Moran assisting on a towline above and Robert Weeks leaving […]
