Tugboat Roundup 2007-2010

I first went to the Roundup in 2007.  Here are some photos. National as for sale that year.  W. O. Decker is an almost-regular attendee.  Cheyenne, also a regular, was red then.  Since it’s currently working out of Wisconsin, I doubt she’ll ever be back. Here are some photos from 2007:  fleetmates Margot and Benjamin […]

Retro 2010 Waterford Tugboat Roundup

Back in 2010, I did four posts about the weekend, which you can see here.  What I did for today’s post was look through the archives and just pick the photos that for a variety of reasons jumped out at me.  A perk is each of the four posts has some video I made.  One […]

Government Tugs Barge Canal 1

I’ve seen this image printed and framed somewhere . . . in a lower Mohawk town, but I don’t remember where.  The lines are quite similar to those of Urger. As to Schenectady she was ex-Buffalo, George W. Aldridge, and City of Schenectady. Around 1910 the name was shortened to just Schenectady.   Per her […]

Chancellor 2

Here was a Chancellor post I did in 2013, and here’s a photo I took of her on September 15, 2017, and alas, here are some photos taken September 24, 2017–yesterday morning– by a responder to whom I’m grateful and used here with permission.  And yes, that’s Urger in the upper righthand corner. Boats float, […]

Waterford Tugboat Roundup 2010 a

Just back from the Roundup, but before I can relax, I want to download my fotos and put a few up.  Below is a lineup as seen from the 2nd Avenue Bridge to Peebles Island. Another lineup, as seen from the fotog boat–Tug 44–loitering just north of the 112th Street bridge.  Many thanks to Fred […]

Waterford Tugboat Roundup 2010 d

My last post on the Roundup is a catch-all with some video at the end.  It include vessels that just happen to be in the area.  Like Kathleen Turecamo (1968), docked at Port of Albany. Cynthia of C. D. Perry.  Notice the exposed engines, and follow the vertical shaft of the drives.  I’d love to […]

Waterford Tugboat Roundup 2010 b

(Silent version) The Roundup begins with a parade between the Port of Albany and the wall below Lock 2 at Waterford.  Waterford is the easternmost point on the Erie Canal. From wherever they find themselves, crews and vessels begin to gather around mid-day Friday.  Benjamin Elliott headed south from Waterford, Cornell saved fuel, waited at […]
