Anyone know the whences and whose . . . inquiring minds wish to know.
Thanks to Mike for sharing these photos.
Somewhat related . . . does anyone you know refer to the East River or any portion of it as the Sound River?
Here the magical dory is tied to Philip T. Feeney, which now languishes in a tug purgatory. The shore of lower Manhattan also looked quite different then. That low-slung but stately building on the other side of the river is the Custom House aka Museum of the American Indian.
Reef points and baggy wrinkle . . . this is a classy sailing dory not timid
when navigating past a tanker of yore.

Here was the first in the series. That one ended on a “back-to-work” note.
This one . . . probably will not have a happy ending, unless of course you’re a fish looking for structure or a diver wanting to explore. Here’s a view of the vessel pre-sixth boro days. And here’s the last time I saw her run. Call Barents Sea high . . . and potentially wetter and wetter.
Have a look while you can.
When she gets reefed, I’d love photos.
Thanks to Birk, here’s her history.

This post represents no more the definitive port of Tampa than a sampling of an hour’s worth of traffic on the KVK, at the Brooklyn Bridge, or past the Holland Tunnel vents would be a definitive capture of the sixth boro of NYC. I’m grateful to a nameless Nemo for these shots . . . like the coal-pushing Jason E. Duttinger and the barge Winna Wilson.
Here’s the 6000 hp Duttinger out of the notch.
As is OSG Endurance, 8000 hp.
From l to r, Sea Hawk . . . 8000 hp, Valiant . . .also 8000, and Linda Moran . . . 5100. I’m not sure what the small tug in the distance is. Also, click here and scroll to see the last time Sea Hawk has appeared in tugster, painted green.
And finally, what’s not visible in the photo below is Paul’s nose. Click here to see a light bow-forward photo of Paul T. Moran.
Again, many thanks to nN for these photos.
Belfast probably has fewer people than does my block in Queens, but it jam packed with character. In fact, I wanted to move there after spending a single weekend there two years ago. Here and here are some posts I did from there.
Many thanks to Tom Mann for these photos, taken in July 2015. Notable among vessels in port, the exquisite Cangarda. Here’s a post I did on it five years ago. Click here for the truly unique Cangarda, built in 1901 and almost lost several times.
This is their 400-ton crane.
From l. to r., it’s Fournier Tractor and Taurus. In case you didn’t click on all the links above, click here to see a photo I took of the Fournier Tractor a few years back, as well as a warning sign in case anyone thinks about usurping a parking spot in front of the Fournier Towing and Ship Service office.
I’m not sure who the current owner of Fort Point is. She’s the 1970 YTB-809.
Cape Race is a frequent fixture of Atlantic Basin in Brooklyn. Does anyone know what’s current with Wanderbird, which came into Long Island Sound about two weeks ago. Wanderbird is a similar repurposed North Sea trawler . . . as an expedition yacht.
I can’t sign off without another photo of the steam yacht Cangarda, built at Pusey & Jones in 1901, originally for a lumber magnate in Manistee, Michigan, named Charles J. Canfield.
Again, many thanks to Tom Mann for these photos.
I’ve never been to St. John, but Justin Zizes has recently on a voyage from the sixth boro, and he sent along these photos, ones that give a snapshot of one moment on a track into port. The pilot boat meeting the ship was Capt. A. G. Soppitt.
Atlantic Spruce is Canadian built.
Some other Atlantic Towing Limited (hardly limited!!) vessels at the base: From right to left: Atlantic Bear, Spitfire III, Atlantic Beaver, and Atlantic Hemlock.
Again, thanks to Justin for these photos. And let me reiterate that I’m really happy about the collaboration on tugster these days, especially these days that I’m busy like crazy with an endeavor I don’t want to talk about yet. It’s good. I’d be interested in a series of ports to which vessels sail from the sixth boro, as is the case with St. John.
RVs, as in research vessels, have appeared here before, but since a blog evolves, I’ve not started out with this as a series. Previous RVs featured here have included Sea Surveyor, Kaho, Marcus G. Langseth, and Bold once and twice. I’ve seen Time and Tide several times in the past month, although I’m not sure which of the e4sciences projects were involved.
Ashley Hutto recently sent along photos of a formidable RV–Atlantis (T-AGOR-25), which is host to
DSV Alvin, a submersible likely everyone has heard of–or at least of projects it has been associated with. And . . to repeat a phrase from the other day, I can’t confirm the identity of the person showing scale, but lucky him . . . to get an audience with Alvin!! DSV?
Thanks to Ashley Hutto for the bottom two photos.
RV Atlantis shares a name with the first research vessel Woods Hole (WHOI) used, a Danish-built schooner, which is still afloat and living yet another life as Dr. Bernardo Houssay of the Argentinian Navy.
I’ve been fortunate to see the Columbia and do posts like this and this. But equally fortunate is the fact Seth Tane lives there and periodically passes along photos like the ones below, Fennica, along with sister Nordica, in Portland about a month ago. Fennica appeared here once six years ago in photos from SeaBart, showing the Finnish icebreaker at work in the North Sea oil patch.
Fennica, as Seth noticed, was carrying a “capping stack,” the yellow object hanging from the red frame on Fennica‘s stern. Fr the difference between a capping stack and a blow-out preventer, click here.
Also, notice the shape of the hull in the photo below, especially the widening flair about midships. In the weeks since Seth took these photos, the icebreakers headed out to Dutch Harbor, AK, and toward the Chukchi Sea, where in the past few days a hull fracture has been found. To be followed.
Below is oceanographic research vessel Kilo Moana (T-AGOR-26), also in Portland.
Also this spring . . . Global Sentinel was on the Columbia, although she’s currently off the Oregon coast.
Many thanks to Seth Tane for these photos.
