Thanks to Jan Van Der Doe 3

Here are some previous posts with photos from Jan. So here’s the tugboat, just out of the shipyard near the Arctic Circle and at work, the last in a series of five identical anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels bringing more than 23000 hp to the job. This job starts in the Princess Arianehaven.  And what’s […]

Thanks to Paul Strubeck 7

and to someone else who took these photos back in 1974. From what I can see in these photos, taken in the shipyard over in Jersey City, the lines are simple and very pleasing. Of course, I can’t see the frames, and even if I could, I’m not a naval architect in any way shape […]

Thanks to Kyle Stubbs D

Recently I posted photos from my first time seeing Cape Henry relatively closeup. I knew it was one of an order of several, so imagine how happy I was to learn that Kyle Stubbs had gotten photos of possibly two others last summer down south. First, it’s Cape Lookout, near the shipyard and ready for […]

Thanks to Brian Wroblewski

Last winter I planned a trip along the southern shore of Lake Erie, hoping to catch photos of lakers in ice.  The results were here, a week after ice out, a schedule that depended on someone else’s time off.  It was a fun trip, but the photos I hoped for eluded me.  Well, Brian caught […]

GL tug Mississippi has appeared on this blog several times before.  She’s a tiller-steered boat that looks good and still works hard although built in 1916!! GL tug Ohio was built in 1903!! and originally served as a Chicago Milwaukee fireboat.  She’s recently changed roles again, as a result of her joining up with that green-hulled […]

Here are some previous posts with photos from Paul. If you want to see all my posts with photos of these wonderful towing machines, click here, the tag GLT. Illinois is typical of this fleet.  Look at the riveted hull.  She’s still working, launched in 1914, before the US entered WW1!!!    Behind her is […]

Thanks to George Schneider 2

George Schneider regularly sends me photos, comments on posts, and shares lots of info on all manner of vessels.   Here was the first installment.  I owe it to him to catch up a bit on his photos. Including ITB Groton in the post yesterday prompts me to start here, with ITB Moku Pahu. When […]

Thanks to Jed 7

It’s been a while since I posted any of Jed’s shots, but I hold them to concentrate them rather than posting them one or two  at a time. Anyhow, of the photo below, Jed writes:  “[Atlas 1974] is my first Estonian tug . . . .” although this photo shows her in Dutch waters. Esvagt […]

Thanks to Ashley Hutto

I’ll get back to my homeward bound series tomorrow, but this photo Ashley Hutto sent along Wednesday just astounds me.  It would be a perfect base for a horror movie poster. Thanks much, Ashley.  That’s a moody photo! You can find many previous posts featuring Ashley’s photos here.  

Thanks to David Silver

All All but one of the photos in this post come from David Silver, assigned as a cadet this summer on a Maersk vessel going halfway around the world and back.  He departed Port Elizabeth on May 21.  This post follows his voyage, focusing on what someone like me–mostly fixed–doesn’t see. May 24.  Charleston.  Mark Moran. […]
