Call this a continuation of yesterday’s post, but this is a model bow set . . . . Given all the features that could be discussed, focus on these for oldest/newest, smallest/largest, and least/most horsepower.  Also, one of these does not fit with the others, although all are tugboats.  Douglas J Doris Moran Philadelphia Again, […]

Call this the push knee set.  And let’s do it this way . . . given all the features that could be discussed, focus of these for oldest/newest, smallest/largest, and least/most horsepower. CMT Pike.  An aside about CMT Pike is that she was not built with a retractable wheelhouse.  When launched, she had a fixed […]

Even on overcast days, the sixth boro aka NY harbor offers sights.  It’s long been so;  here’s much abridged paragraphs 3-5 Chapter 1 of Moby Dick: [People] stand … fixed in ocean reveries.

or maybe I could call these “roaring 20s” tugs in the sixth boro . . . let’s start with likely the newest of these, maybe the newest in the boro, Charles Hughes, 3000 hp and 90′ x 34′ . She’s a Salisbury-class, the fourth of that class from Chesapeake Shipbuilding.   Another product of the […]

Happy please-go-vote day.  If you know anyone at all who is eligible to vote but won’t, have a chat with that person.  As a New Yorker, I voted over a week ago . . . early voting on a Saturday afternoon. Some photos . . .  and your part is to 1) rank these boats […]

Anyone know the story of this lobster tug over at Pier 81 Hudson River?  Its current name?   Discovery Coast was standing by a tank barge at Pier 8 Red Hook.   Next pier south, Pier 9, Evening Tide hibernates. I guess it’s not true that all parts of “time and tide wait for no […]

Paula Atwell travels light for a change.  CMT Pike does her harbor rounds.  Mister Jim here looks brighter than usual in the morning sun; in cloudy weather, that gray livery obscures details.  Robert IV assists at the stone anchorage.
