Let’s start with the photo I did NOT get, but jag9889 did;  click here to see Resolve Commander and (in the photo stream) the barge it towed Thursday carrying the remaining TZ Bridge structure out to sea.   Bravo jag . . . . I’ve long enjoyed your work. The photo below raises some questions […]

Thanks to Joseph Chomicz, it’s Capt. Latham in Port Elizabeth .  .  . standing by the barge Atlanta Bridge . . .  So here’s my question . . . and answer will be located at the end of this post . . .  in quo vadis? I’ve not seen this boat in a while . […]

Memorial Day weekend 2019 . . .  and we should all remember the meaning, whether we’re working or vacating from work. You can read the names on the vessels or on the tags.           All photos by Will Van Dorp, who’d included no links in this post except the one that […]

Glenn Raymo caught this photo up the Hudson the other day, as Joker assisted a Weeks crane.  Hays tugs do come up here occasionally, but I’ve never seen them. Back almost exactly six years ago, the same boat headed upriver as a dead ship.  And eight […]

This Bob Hill OT/B creation juxtaposes well with the ever-changing skyline of lower Manhattan, as seen from the East River. Meredith C. is timing her eastbound trip with a fair tide through the Gate. Catching the same tide, it’s Evening Star. Farther SW, Gracie M. makes her way around Bergen Point. Evening Breeze is a […]

Just for ships and figgles . . . have a glance at 155 and at 55 in this series. While we’re reconnoitering the past, here’s 5. And here’s springtime 2019.  Might this be the last view I get of tug Viking?  Scuttlebutt’s bumped into me saying so. Her first (I believe) appearance on this blog was […]

Stephen B heads light westbound about to pass under the Bayonne Bridge, as Mary H, especially busy during the cold times of the year, pushes some petroleum product in the opposite direction.  Soon leaves will decorate Shooters out beyond her. There’s a pool hall in Queens by the name Shooters, so to clarify, here are […]
