At first light, Navigator passes a docked Saint Emilion.  This 1981 build has called the sixth boro her home since 2015.  Saint Emilion (2007) has been here in two previous liveries and names. Barney Turecamo was launched in 1995.  Note her cutaway forefoot. Barney, married to Georgia, gets an assist from Doris Moran, 1982, as […]

Enjoy more late afternoon photos here . . .  like Alexandra, passing in front of a number of cranes, both on the water, near the water, and atop buildings. Ava transits the Con Hook Range, with three East River bridges in the background. Miriam heads in the direction of the Bayonne Bridge, with two Arthur […]

I’m fortunate to live within easy distance of all this activity:  Nathan G, Treasure Coast, B. Franklin Reinauer, an ULCV, Doris Moran, and who knows how much is obscured behind these . . .  And then there’s the crane atop the building to the left and the gull lower right. Or here . . . […]

With the end of the year coming, it’s strangely difficult to put these posts together.  I’ve chased down several ideas the past few days, and abandoned them.   All these photos were taken in recent days, except one about a month ago.  They strike me as showing the different skies and waters of the unacknowledged boro.  […]

A new tug in town . . .  Osprey?  Built in 1961, she’s a sibling of Kodi.  Photo thanks to Tony A. B & B . . .  it’s Brendan Turecamo in the distance and Bruce A McAllister.  It turns out they are not clones:  Brendan is a year newer, and Bruce A. is few […]

It still says Eastern Star Dawn, but now it’s Toula! She’s going to look great all buff and green. Barry Silverton finally has a lion on its stack!  All those birds?  It’s water teeming with the bunker, the bunker that recently drew a humpback into the Upper Bay. Pelham, launched in 1960, is always a pleasant […]

Name that tug?  She’s 91.5′ x 26.8′ and used to be called Traveller.  Answer follows. Part of a defacto ghost fleet around the sixth boro, it’s J. George Betz, and mostly invisible beyond, Rhea I. Bouchard. J. George is longer, stronger, and newer. Also in the dry dock a week or so back, it’s Emily […]

If you follow this blog, you know I look for novelty:  new vessels, new roles, new perspectives I don’t always even initially or ever understand.  Here’s for me a new boat, Cape Fear, 2018, another Sassafras class tug.   Brendan Turecamo, 1975,  has appeared here many times, but in the past week, I’ve seen her […]

Bobbie Ann departs the sixth boro with some GLDD equipment.  Little did I know at the time that Bobbie Ann had left the sixth boro a decade ago, then as Vera K. Ernest Campbell wrestles along a double hull bunker barge. I wonder why the Centerline Logistics lion has not yet been added to her […]

Here are previous iterations, just to change things up.  Non-random here means I took these over a few weeks, which should be obvious as you look through the photos. Atlantic Enterprise . .  . she’s big at 136′ x 40′.  Over the past few years, she has appeared here.  Before that, she was in the […]
