Random Tugs 243

I missed Josephine Reinauer (actually I saw her but couldn’t get a clear shot)  when she visited town recently, but I did catch Jacksonville, the latest Vane machine in the harbor. For some reason I expected her to look different, but it’s an Elizabeth Anne class tug, which’ll look a lot like most of the […]

Random Tugs 236

Along the Jersey shore . . .  it’s Candace, a Damen Shoalbuster design . . . built at Eastern Shipbuilding in 2004. Hete’s a slightly sharper, closer shot. Working with Candace in dredge support, it’s Trevor. Trying to keep her ground tackle tackling the bay bed, it’s Linda Moran holding with Houston. OSG 350 is […]

Combi Dock III & Peking Saga 2

I stopped by around midday today.  Trevor had been alongside all morning.  I presume this was loading cargo support materials. Here’s the last post I did where Trevor appeared.   These first two photos are taken from Brooklyn looking across at Staten Island. Time is of the essence here, but I’ll bet working in the 90 degree […]

Weeks 3

I do not try to group tugboats in posts by company, but in the past week I’ve noticed an inordinate number of Weeks boats in the sixth boro.  Let’s start with this shot of Trevor, which I caught yesterday.   Here are some previous Trevor shots. Earlier I’d caught Trevor tailing a tow pull by […]

Replenished Rockaway

Aug 31.  A late summer day at the beach, where a new “towel drying rack” has been adopted and a bumper crop of sand awaits the erosion of winter, perhaps?  All photos here taken by Barbara Barnard. Sept 1.  A tug (Trevor?) moves a crane barge to where the “drying rack”/piping needs to be fished […]

Whole Lotta Dredgin’ 11

Here and here are previous posts on a Rockaway Beach replenishment dredging operation that has now ended.   Sea Wolf is still local, but the vessel on the horizon (“atop” the red buoy) has now moved to southern NJ.  Remember, for most fotos, doubleclick enlarges. Weeks’ Trevor was assisting in this project. Also assisting was […]

Specialized 19

So what travels through this piping? C. R. McCaskill was launched just over a year ago with a bottle of champagne across one of the 35-pound teeth of the cutterhead.  Click here for a foto and story. For more technical info on McCaskill‘s capabilities, read this article by my friend Brian Gauvin and published in the […]

Shear Legs

title sounds provocative?   Well,  I’ll subtitle this “whole lotta dredgin’ 6.”  It’s been almost three years since I’ve used this title, but .  .   . when Sabine‘s this close to the beach and there’s a tube in the water, there must be a shear leg  or two lurking nearby, although I wonder if […]
