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 […]

Newest Hull in the Sixth Boro 12

How about a new day, a new month, a new year, and a new hull in the sixth boro!  Can you recognize the profiles sans color? As it passes Norton Point inbound, you begin to make out the color. Once well inside Gravesend Bay–that’s the west end of Coney Island in the background–the colors increase […]

Newest Hull in the Sixth Boro 15

Here’s the newest, following directly from 12 for Sandy Ground and 10 for SSG Michael H. Ollis.  Or how about a redux for both.  Now unless ferry and tug travel on a maglev frictionless cushion of air when offshore and distant, this is just the fata morgana effect when the vessels are seen a ways […]

Random Tugs 383

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Barges 4

Jeremy Whitman took this photo of the big blue Konecranes #38 crane.  Tail boat is Candace Elise, prior to 2015 known as Stephen Dann, as here.  OXBO is managing the transport. They departed Manitowoc a week or so ago and are now in a very wide portion of the Saint Lawrence, downstream from Gaspé Peninsula.  […]

More Tubular

But first . . . polling is still OPEN for photos for the 2020 calendar pages, but in the interest of completing tasks in a timely fashion, I’ve decided that if I received zero votes by Sunday, December 15, I’ll declare it closed.  Additional nominations for the December page can also still be offered until […]
