Sea Lion 3

Here were 1 and 2.  And leading up to the sinking in 2014, here are some old photos. And then January 16, 2014.  The next few photos by Bjoern Kils, of NYMedia Boat. Here was her sonar signature, as her exact location of sinking was marked.  Photo from Bjoern. A nameless salt sent in this […]

Sea Lion 2

Here was the first in this series.  The good news is that this past Saturday Sea Lion was raised.  The first two images are credited to Tug Life at Henry Marine and Orlando Martinez. Jon Harrison caught the next two over on the west side of Bergen Point . . . .  It’s the crane […]

Sea Lion

Here are my fotos of Sea Lion . . . certainly not 38′ loa, as has been reported.  Here she passes Coney Island a few years back and here she exits the KVK pushing a barge. I’m very sad to hear of the accident but happy all were rescued. All fotos by Will Van Dorp. […]

Yachts a Million 3

Here are previous installments. I caught Invictus earlier this week as it came into the boro.  I had no idea then that by midweek, it would become newsworthy, although it would be on Page Six.  Anyone know what I’m talking about?  Answer follows. I don’t know if this is the Invictus owner driving the tender […]

Yachts a Million

A Nordhavn 62 . . .  ??  exiting the Erie Canal last weekend.  Professional delivery crew? It was interesting that something they saw on the bulkhead in Waterford prompted them to do a 180 and try to squeeze onto the bulkhead.  Was it thoughts of dining on sausage and onions washed down with a Keegan Ale?  Port of registry here–Port […]

Sea Wolf Moves Yankee

No, this isn’t the January River.  I leave for there today, but this . . .   !!  These next four fotos come from the perspicacious bowsprite, taken yesterday afternoon.   The tug in the foreground is Sea Wolf is 1982.  In the background is –of course–Ellis Island, 1900.  In between with the yellow stack […]

Salish Sea 5: The Canal Mostly

July is officially “gallivant month” this year, but as an update on yesterday’s “Bridge” post . . . the tow got somewhere out of foto range before daybreak;  when I got up to check progress on AIS at 5 am local time, it was already south of the Holland Tunnel vents.  I guess we’ll have […]

In Like A Lion

In less than half day from this writing, March will arrive.  Since I hope for t-shirt mildness by end of March, I’m counting on the month to arrive  . . . like a large feline:  lion plus whatever synergy comes from compounding with year of the Tiger.  (For the record, the tiger portion of that […]

Random Tugs 234

Seeing a tugboat on a mooring in the sixth boro is unusual, in my experience, and I took many shots.  This is my favorite. Neptune the other morning headed for sea along the sylvan banks of Staten Island. James E. Brown moves a scow, likely to be filled with scrap metals. Brian Nicholas travels to […]

Sixth Boro Spring Signs 2018

Call it a sea change.  The air warms up although the water is still very cold. Sea Lion does what it has all winter, but what’s different is the reappearance of non-workboats.  Sea Lion has some history on this blog. Evening Light moves north in anticipation of summer. Pleasure boats move into an environment that […]
