Sarah Dann and 38

Excuse the duplication here, but since this was a long voyage, I’ll repeat some of the early shots and add new ones farther down the page.  A Great Lakes mariner took this is Manitowoc on May 29.  Jeremy Whitman got these as the tow left Manitowoc on May 30.   Jake Van Reenen got this […]

Sarah Dann and her Tubular Load

Sarah Dann left the sixth boro the other day with this deckload on CBC Savannah. Some questions I had were  . . . what and where to? Inquiring ducks wanted to know, and yes, this is the opposite scenario of “little loquacious birdie.”   Modular structure for a refinery perhaps?  As of this posting, she’s […]

Sarah D 2

Here was the first post of this title. Yesterday was cold but also windy, and this allowed me to see Sarah D in a role I’ve not posted previously for this boat, although she’s no doubt specialized in the assist role earlier in her career. Above she approaches the dock on the port side.   […]

Sarah D

Sarah D passes the Con Hook range markers while leaving the Kills the other day. Subjective only, I find Sarah D, ex-Helen D. Coppedge–a very attractive boat. I was pleased to get these photos with Newark NJ and the occupants of Bayonne Dry dock in the background. All photos by Will Van Dorp. Unrelated to […]

Random Tugs 339

“Random Tugs 001” I posted in October 2007, 14 years ago.  The motivation for such a post then, as now, comes from the observation that what passes you by, either on the water, the roadway, or even the sidewalk or hallway, is often just random.  It’s foolish to look for meaning or significance where there […]

Random Tugs 338

To highlight the variety, this post will focus on size, horsepower, and age. Matthew Tibbetts, 1969, 92′ x 27′, 2000 hp.  All numbers rounded up if  .5 or more. Brendan Turecamo, 1975, 107′ x 32′, 3900. Crystal Cutler, 2010, 67′ x 26′, 1500. Bruce A. McAllister, 1974, 112′ x 30′, 4000. C.F. Campbell, 1975, 100′ […]

Other Peoples Photos 86

Click here for the previous 85 posts with this title.  Lead photos today come from former owner of this push boat in West Burlington, Iowa. The vessel, then known as Izona, has since traveled the Interstates and two-lanes to Highlands, NJ, towed by the much-loved Peterbilt of John Zook, of Lewisburg, PA. Maybe you saw […]

Assists 12

Quick . .  name those two tugs and barge? Here’s that same barge, and the previously obscured third tug, Pegasus. Is it possible that this is the first time I post photos of the 2015 Leigh Ann Moran?  My blog index tells me it is. A double assist gets her gently into the IMTT dock, […]

Random Tugs 303

Enjoy the photos.  Can you guess which of these tugboats is oldest? Greetings Rae and hello to the crewman at the railing. It’s been awhile since I’ve seen Rae.  The first time I saw her I was with Bonnie and the tug was then called Miss Bonnie. Several people have said Matthew Tibbetts is the […]

Random Tugs 301

We’re past the big 300 and on our way to the 400, maybe.   Nine tugboats appear in this post.  Can you arrange them greatest to least in horsepower?  Longest to shortest?  To make it easier, you can rank them in top group of three to bottom group. Ruby M eastbound one early morning,   […]
