Random Sixth Boro 12

It’s hard to beat morning light for drama, as is the case here with QM2 getting assisted by James D. and Doris Moran into her berth in Red Hook, as I shoot into that light. Taken only a few minutes later, this photo of FV Eastern Welder dragging the bottom in front of the Weeks […]

Random Sixth Boro 11

I’m on the road again, so today I’ll share some recent photos on the boro.  Of course, winter is still fishing time in the harbor, as Viking is doing here. Others are feeding in the boro, like this guy below . . . closeup of the photo above. I’m always looking for intriguing things, like […]

Random Sixth Boro 10

The sixth boro, i.e., the watery part that holds the other boros together, is the one that never sleeps, with current, tides, mechanical denizens and their operators, their flora and fauna,  . . .  I’ll leave the list there for now. You can read the season changing in the fact that Eastern Welder has reappeared […]

Random Sixth Boro 9

You can find the first eight installments here. Little C is a relatively seldom seen harbor tug dedicated to Warren George projects. Coal? Navigator these days has been pushing coal around the harbor, coal as I understand it thanks to ws–a frequent commenter here–that was previously intended as fuel to the now-retired Hudson Generation Station. […]

Random Sixth Boro 8

You’d have thought I use this title more often, but it’s been almost three years since it last appeared. I’m starting with this photo of the lightship WLV-612, because this is where I’ll be this evening for a FREE and open-to-the-public 6 pm showing of our documentary Graves of Arthur Kill.  Seats for those who arrive […]

Random Tugs 375

Random and quick for now .  . . the 2015 Janet D makes her way across the Bay.   The 1974 Marjorie B. McAllister  moves its car float float from NJ to NY.   The 1996 Martin Explorer and her barge has been in town at least once before here a little over a half […]

Random Tugs 352

Enjoy this set of photos, taken on a random path across the harbor with the NY Media Boat.  More Gene Chaser soon.  Ruby M above is the oldster of the set, launched in 1967.  She’s 95′ loa and turns out just under 2000 hp.  Below, Colonel dates from 1978, turns out 3000 hp and is […]

Three Tankers

This Odfjell tanker has 47 tanks! I took this recently along the KVK.   Today the 1998 tanker is in the Mississippi River heading for New Orleans. Guess the age here? She’s just two years old, launched in January 2019.  Elandra Willow has departed for the next job, but this morning Elandra Oak arrived in the […]

Random Tankers 10

Random means all within the past month and all ages and sizes, like Giancarlo D  2016   508′ x 85′. Kmarin Resolution is also a 2016  build, but 820′ x 144′.  Lightering is  Linda Moran with barge Houston.  Linda was the tug spared in the W & D fire back in 2008. Maybe someone can identify […]

Road Fotos 2021 F 2

We’re a week out from Christmas Eve and fewer days than that from the solstice, it’s time to complete road photos from two weeks ago already;  here was part 1.  The French Quarter of New Orleans has a lot of colored neon all year round, but here, juxtaposed with tropical colors of house paint, are […]
