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 […]

Port of Galveston

Another secret salt’s been photographing, this one in the waters near Galveston, a place I’ve not been. Here he passed San Roberto and Rana Miller, which I have not seen in the sixth boro since 2009. The orange boats are AET, and assist with lightering operations, as does Rana.   Josephine K Miller must be offshore. Mr. […]

Retro Sixth Boro 34 b

This secret lake had great ice for these old boats like Ariel, Ice Queen, Whirlwind, Genevieve, and others.   I was asked not to tell then, and by now I’ve forgotten exactly where this Shangri-la was, but the ice boating was ideal.  Has anyone heard of Hudson River Valley ice boating happening this year?  The […]

WPC-1113 Richard Dixon and Stealthy Sidekick

Over six years ago, I posted with a title this one mimics.  Richard Dixon is to the left, clearly USCG white, indicating its primary mission.  My question is what color is the larger vessel to the right? Maybe you can guess more about this vessel below.  The photo comes from a secret salt from a […]

Secret salts sometimes send along photos, and I appreciate that, since many waterways I’ll never see . . .  and that means boats I’d never encounter, like Reliance, 1979, 127′ x 40;’ Grand Canyon II, an offshore construction/ROV/IRM vessel, shown in this link getting towed from Romania to Norway for completion; and more. Here’s an unidentified […]

Really Random Tugs 33 and More

I’m trying to catch up with the photos you all have been good enough to share on tugster.  The first five here come from some salts up on the Caloosahatchee Canal in Florida.  John Parrish was westbound here, but a week later it showed up in the sixth boro, and by publication of this post, it’s […]

Here’s the index if you want to see the previous installments. A secret salt along the Saint Lawrence snapped this photo of Algoma Montrealais towed by Diavlos Pride and largely unseen) Ecosse on the stern.  To see photos of Algoma Montrealais’  last season, click here. For purposes of the transit to the scrapyard, she’s been renamed (by subtraction) as […]

From the Line Locker 19

Here’s an index of the previous “locker” posts. Let’s start with a photo from a secret salt seeking an identification.  All I know is that this photo of an “old army tug” was taken in 1982 and that the building in the background is the Brooklyn Army Terminal, a frequent background in sixth boro photos […]
