Not many Bouchard boats are moving these days;  the 2016 Frederick, 125′ x 38 and 6140 hp, is an exception. I took this just after sunrise for the backlit effect. The 1961 Caitlin Ann stays busy;  her 2400 hp moves the 79′ x 24′ hull and whatever the load is. Note equipment of at least […]

Mary Turecamo, 4300 hp ad waiting for a ship at the Narrows, could not look better.  She’s an almost 40-year-old product of Matton Shipyard.  In fact, she was their last product. Christiana heads out as Virginia, 1440 hp and launched in 1979,  comes in from sea, out of the haze. Christiana was launched in Marinette WI […]

Recent days have seen a convergence of the Cape-class, […]
