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, […]

Fruits of Preservation 3

Here were the first two installments of this series.  And what prompts this post is the news yesterday about a $200 million structure in the assembly stages just four years ago.  Click on the image below to see the post I did just four years ago. It will be scrapped as announced yesterday here.  The […]

I recall my first time seeing the KVK, astonished by the density of commercial traffic.  Of course, I’d just come from northern New England’s freshwater meandering rivers, surfable sandy coastlines, and marsh creeks.  Patrice steamed westbound, light, Kimberly eastbound, Josephine, Daisy Mae, moving a half acre of scows… Helen Laraway, Daisy Mae again a few […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Random Tugs 342

A new assist boat in town bringing 3800 hp to the job? Right . . .  I was kidding.  It’s Jones Act non-compliant anyhow.  Genesis Eagle is a 6140 hp pin boat.    JRT Moran and Capt. Brian McAllister do an assist of an ULCV. Pegasus gives Mount St. Elias an assist as it moves […]

Random Tugs 355

Happy 31st, aka Halloween, World Savings Day, Day of Seven Billion, National Candy Apple Day, Annual visit a cemetery or graveyard day . . . and more.  If you need suggestions for a graveyard, consider this one.  And just yesterday, I learned of this one and this one.  Who knew?!!?  Want to revisit a tugster […]
