Seats of Power 4

My trickster truckster hopper is filling and will dump one of these days soon, but this photo fits better in the “seats” category. But to put this back on the water, here’s the power seat on ex-Catherine Turecamo now John Marshall.  I’d love to see this vessel in her current colors and working in her […]

Seats of Power 5

It seats one to power nothing, but makes a good puzzle here in the PowWow River some years ago.  In dry season, you walked through the gate and sat here to fish or just sit. Poseidon’s Sea-Bee Pusher power unit has has no seat, so you make your own with your own, complete with a […]

Seats of Power 1

Consider this a post in the genre of stacks and wheels. The fourth photo is the latter post shows 12 hands on these wheels, and no one seated.   Someone once said you stand (not sit) watch. This canoe livery motorboat used in Algonquin Provincial Park has a flat aluminum seat, no cushion. No seats here […]

Seats of Power 3

Just when I thought I had no more photos for another installment of “seats,” uh . .  more appear.  This arrangement of seating in this Erie Canal tug has to win a prize.  I can’t tell which lock it is, nor (I believe) can Bob Graham, who sent it in.  The captain on the Feeney […]

Seats of Power 2

Edda Fram runs back and forth, it seems, from shore (Scotland)  to various oil platforms in the North Sea.  Rough weather operation necessitates seats hard to fall out of. Solomon T, once operated by Elbert Felton (shown), is a 1938 restored inside the Outer Banks fishing vessel, with seat and wheel appropriate to 1938. MV […]

Truckster! 17

I caught up with this . .  the other day, Switching lanes . . . I noticed something I’ve seen before like here from a decade ago, and in many other posts like here. Of course, others become art objects for a while, maybe until they rust back into the earth.   Cars arrive from […]

People on the Boro 31

The recent period of extended summer in the boro means crew are out, enjoying fresh air, like these guys.  I always wonder who these seafarers are, where  they are from, how seafaring has shaped their lives and families, as well as how long they’ve been at sea, both on this voyage and over the course […]

Montezuma to Lyons

Here I get to prove once again that you can never step into the same river twice, or you can never see the same stretch of canal the same way twice.  Click here to see what I did with previous set of photos. The photo below was taken from the NE corner of the triangular […]

Something Different 65

I traveled RT by air last week, and as usual, tried to spot landmarks, entertainment for the map fan that I am.  Mount Vernon is how the smart phone labels it.  I’d call it a view of Mobile Bay at dusk, looking south. I concur with the phone that this is New Orleans, one of […]

Lyons to Palmyra

Happy 120 years old, Urger!  I urge you  to read the note at the bottom of this post. And . . . .Oops!  I read the timer wrong. Bidding for Grouper, in Lyons NY,  ends about six hours from now.  Lyons is a county seat, but it’s possible to take a photo of lock E-27, […]
