Here are previous posts in this series. All photos below come compliments of Mike Weiss and were taken on September 24, i.e., about a month after Wavertree rose out of the water on Caddell Dry Dock No. 6.
Rather than a very satisfying sifting through the index above, you can read a short history of Wavertree here.
Many thanks, Mike.
Time to renew your South Street Seaport Museum membership?
Here was “springtime.” All the following photos taken by Jake Van Reenen this past summer show the variety of cargoes moved.
Many thanks to Jake for use of these photos.
You can call this “Capt. Log gone; Chandra B arrived.” Log out or log off . . . might work also. Anyone know if Capt. Log, launched 1979 and retired at 0000 hrs on 1/1/15, has sold and if so to whom? Click here for a Professional Mariner article on the vessel.
But the real story here is that a new appropriate-sized double-hulled tanker has taken her place in the sixth boro. Welcome Chandra B.
Here she fuels up
Positive Carry, a Feadship, on the Upper Bay.
Many thanks to Bjoern of New York Media Boat for these photos.
Here’s the series . . . .
And the intention of this post is to prompt a discussion, not just be vain. Let me explain: thanks to HL for taking this photo the other day during a 33-hour delivery of a Nautor Swan 42 from NY to Baltimore. Off NJ, conditions were described as a confused sea.
The reason for the photo and this post is to ask about seasickness, which I’ve never experienced but this time I did. I lost breakfast as soon as we departed the Ambrose Channel and set sail. I’d taken dramamine, but it only made me drowsy. Ironically, between gags, I felt very happy; stomach sick but spirits good. It hurt to talk much but smiles soothed. And when I was told to steer a course, all was better.
Here’s a set of 50 suggestions for dealing with seasickness I found on gCaptain. A dear friend wrote that there are two kinds of people: those who get seasick and those who haven’t YET. My brother traveled to Vietnam by ship, said he was seasick for weeks, and has scorned water travel every since. I used to pack a ginger root when I went fishing and keep a slice between my teeth and inner cheek.
Thanks to HL for sharing the photo.

Sail Amsterdam ended a month ago, but these photos come from a relative who works for Dutch law enforcement and could mingle freely with his vessel. Thanks cousin.
New Yorkers should easily recognize this vessel, in spite of some slightly different trappings.
Guayas, the Ecuadorian tall ship, called in the sixth boro three years ago.
Guayas was assisted by Aaron on the bow. Can anyone identify the tug hanging on the stern? Aaron appeared here once a year ago.
Sirius is an Iskes tug that outpowers Aaron by about four-fold.
Steam tug Scheelenkuhlen (70′ x 21′ x 6′ draft and 65 tons) dates from 1927.
A876 Hunze, launched 1987, is one of five large tugs operated by the Royal Dutch Navy.
Shipdock VI measures 52′ x 13.’
I can’t tell you much about Jan.
Voorzan III dates from 1932. Stadt Amsterdam has called in the sixth boro several times.
Triton 2008 is another Iskes tug.
They’re all beauties . . . from Zeetijger to
And this has to be a tanker that delights when she calls into port at the end of the day.
Let’s call it quits for today with a tug operated by the Port of Amsterdam . . . PA5 aka Pollux.

The point of this post is to profile the mobility of the world afloat . . . people, cargoes, movers . . . Here was Frances in Waterford early morning Saturday, September 12. Note Lehigh Valley 79 down the way.
The next two photos come thanks to Glenn Raymo, who lives and takes some great photos up by Poughkeepsie. Late Monday afternoon–September 14– he caught not only Frances but also the hitchhiking barge Lehigh Valley 79 southbound, along with several scows of crushed stone. I guess all barges hike hitches, technically.
The following morning I caught this photo of Frances over in front of Bayonne. By now, Lehigh Valley 79 had been returned to its place over in Red Hook Brooklyn.
From the Erie Canal, where some of the Frances crew may have taken part in the line toss, to New York City’s sixth boro in a couple days . . this is a water world. And what makes it even more remarkable,
a versatile tug like Frances could–if there was a compelling reason to do so, traverse the Erie Canal and head into the huge north coast area we call the Great Lakes Basin.
Thanks to Glenn Raymo for the two photos above; all others by Will Van Dorp.
Back in September 2007, I was paying attention to the green Gladding-Hearn 1966 Dragon, when a schooner with tanbark sails entered my field of view, and what
a schooner she was. I never got any nearer than to take the photo below. Twice, however, I got requests for copies of that photo. Fulfilling the more recent request led to an invitation to see the boat, which had undergone a long restoration process, and sans masts was back in the water.
So here she is, two weeks ago in Friendship Maine. Drool . . . .
I’m eager to see her masts stepped and sails bellied.
Many thanks to Don Zappone for the tour of this sweet schooner.
The sailing vessel below–credit to Stefan Edick– is the venerable schooner Adventure. Built in 1926 in Essex MA, she doryfished for three decades before times forced several re-invention. Recently, she got back into moving food, transporting $70,000 of Maine farm and sea bounty from Commercial Wharf in Portland to Boston’s Long Wharf.
Here she passes Spring Point Ledge Light, with Fort Gorges in the distance. All the photos that follow are used with credit to Mark Hartman via Jessica Suda.
She’s prepared for the cargo and
Here’s Adventure arrived in Boston, where
Metro Pedal Power takes over to move the goods to market.
