Thanks to Stewart Gibson

Stewart calls this “museum tugs of the Great Lakes.” “We start in Lake Superior, specifically Two Harbors, with  Edna G., built in 1896 and assisted freighters for 80 years.  [You can find previous appearances of this tug on this blog here. ] Next we go to Sturgeon Bay with  John Purves. She was built in […]

Thanks to Tony Acabono 31

To follow up on my “inconsistent post-entitling” comment from yesterday, this could be Tony A 31, at least, given all his previous contributions here under a variety of noms de keyboard. For starters, here’s another closeup of Highland Eagle. Last summer the boat was contracted to survey an area near the Straits of Mackinac for […]

Thanks to Mike Abegg 12

If my post-entitling were consistent, this would be the twelfth post with pics from Mike.  Of course, if it were differently consistent, this would be Lois M 4.   Yes, 4 because of this post which would be Thanks to Jake . . . and a number. OK, I’ll stop with all the meta-commentary. Nevertheless, Lois […]

Thanks to Jed 9

Another tug Jed photographed in Rotterdam is Jaro II. The 1990 Damen STAN 2909 appears to have a stop in the Netherlands after having worked in the Dutch Antilles and before going to Portugal.   Unlike a lot of Damen STAN products, Jaro II was built in the Netherlands.   Thanks much, Jed.     […]

Jed–John Jedrlinic–has been busy, but recently he sent some photos from Rotterdam. ALP Winger is a huge anchor-handling tug:  213′ 59′ x 25′ He got these photos in Rotterdam, but the boat is currently in the Azores. With her five mains, she generates over 18000 horsepower.   This is definitely a boat for a niche. […]

Thanks to Kevin Oldenburg

. . . or I could call this another unusual tow or unusual cargo, but Kevin took these photos, as he did some of those here. Megan Beyel has towed cargo down the Hudson before, as these two posts, but she’s hardly a regular.  I’ll bet that unit weighs upwards of 150 tons. The other […]

I’ll start with a photo I took in Toronto in September.  I could read that it was called Coastal Titan, but I thought it was a floating dry dock confined to Toronto.  Then in October I saw a photo Marc had taken in July downstream of Montreal, showing … the same Coastal Titan, pushed by […]

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 […]
