Name that tug? Answer follows.
Kodiak . . . this is a new one for me and a one-off trip for the vessel?
The tug here is
Liberty Service. And yes, that’s Chesapeake Coast in the distance.
This is an impressive lineup in the late fall afternoon light: the McAllisters Kate, Bruce, Helen, Brothers, Brian . . and more.
This vessel I truly don’t know. It’s new in the harbor, and I have a hunch . . . but will keep that to myself.
All photos very recently by Will Van dorp.
Chesapeake Coast and others were out pushing fuel,
Seastreak New Jersey and others were moving passengers . . . (maybe here), and
crews on ship and shore were moving bulk materials like salt here from Key Hunter.
And if you wonder what it looks like at the base of that tower, whose antenna arrived in the harbor 723 days ago, here’s a photo from Fulton Street I took two weeks ago when the news trucks and lots of others were hoping that two workers would soon be rescued.

For a sense of how the Lower Manhattan skyline looked from New Brighton area of Staten Island about four years ago, click here.
Eastbound and from left, it’s Sunny Williams, Sarah Ann, and Ellen McAllister.
Around the same time, it’s a light Patrice McAllister eastbound. Compare the April 2014 shot below with these April 2012 ones of her first arriving in the sixth boro after the tragic fire on Lake Ontario.
After all the ice work Kimberly Poling has done the past few months, Sunday was a welcome sunny day, I’ll assume.
It wasn’t until this tow turned away from head-one that I understood what I was looking at . . ..
but closer in . . . it was clearly Stephen Dann (I think this is her first appearance on this blog) towing
crane barge Strong Island.
Off Owl’s Head, it’s Pacific Reliance and Discovery Coast (I think) off to the west.
Pacific Reliance appeared here about six weeks ago.
Catherine Turecamo stands by near Gulf Pearl.
Parting shot . . . following up on the opening shot of this post.
All photos the past few days by Will Van Dorp.
Huron Service (1981) sailed into the springy morning it was.
Chesapeake Coast (2012) lit up the dawn this morning.
McAllister Responder (1967) and Gage Paul Thornton (1944) met in the KVK last Saturday. Click here for Gage Paul‘s long history, during one part of which she carried the name Elizabeth McAllister.
Joyce D. Brown (2002) passes Stolt Jade.
Houma (1970) like many of the vessels in this post, has operated under a long list of companies.
Gulf Coast (1982) enters the KVK from the east this morning before 9 a.m.
A parting shot of the vessel that started today’s post . . . Huron Service, headed to refuel.
All photos taken the last few days by Will Van Dorp.
It’s Margot, last included on this blog here. Guess the location?
Here’s a closer-up of Gage Paul with Robbins Light in the background.
Here’s Robert leaving the sixth boro this morning with a tow that
East Coast meets west coast this morning alongside Corossol.
The newer Dean headed eastbound on the KVK and
and finally . . another configuration of Marjorie B. McAllister.
All photos taken this week by Will Van Dorp.
Oh . . . Margot‘s location in the first photo is Tottenville NY, with Outerbridge Crossing in the background.
Guess the locations here and . . .
here? Answers follow.
This one should be obvious. What’s the Philly-bound tug?
It’s Lucky D.
Here’s Chesapeake Coast, probably North River and then Hudson River bound.
B. Franklin Reinauer is Sound-bound.
And some light tugs . . . Elizabeth,
. . . Margaret Moran and Pegasus.
The top two were . . . locations were Chao Phraya River in Bangkok and the Staten Island side of the Narrows, with tug Gulf Dawn outbound. Click here for some Thai tugs from almost seven years ago. Thanks much to Ashley Hutto for the first photo.
This first foto is by a secret salt . . . showing Dory (1978) and Captain Zeke (1980) tandem towing beach-lounging 125′ deck barge back onto the water.
And . . . attributed by the watermark . . . fotos from last week before Janus chilled the town, Atlantic Conveyor gets an assist from Charles D. McAllister (1967).
Shelby (1978) also worked in the January fog. Thanks, Brian.
And the rest of the fotos are mine: the seldom-seen Specialist (1956?), here close and
Two Coasts . . . Chesapeake (2011) and Emerald (1973).
Resolute (1975) about to pass Düsseldorf Express (1998),
Many thanks to the secret salt and Brian DeForest for their fotos. All others by Will Van Dorp.
Here was 30 minutes from another vantage point. Yesterday I left for work early and had a half hour or so to kill from Fort Wadsworth. Seeing Ital Laguna and CMA CGM Matisse leaving together convinced me to stop there. Meanwhile a larger and
smaller fishing boat arrive. I recognize this boat, although I don’t know its name. See it the last foot here.
First Coast moves in from somewhere beyond Norton’s Point.
Rays now rake across the top of the manifold on Freja Nordica as it enters the Narrows and
passes an outbound Franklin Reinauer.
Recognize the profile?
It’s Ellen. I’ve no horse that shakes harness bells to suggest I move along, but I know I have –if no promises to keep–then . . work to do, appointments to meet.

Darell T. Gilbert took this foto . . . a hot air balloon over the water in Red Hook around the 5th of January. WTF?!@#@!! Anyone know the story?
Thanks to Sam Zapadinsky . . . can you identify this creature walking on the icy upper Hudson? Coyote? Here’s a post from a few years ago of eagles on the mostly frozen river.
Sam also took this foto from the tug Frances, which
is the forwardmost tug in this foto by Bob Dahringer. Frances and Kathleen Turecamo move crude oil tanker Afrodite into the dock in Albany, one of many water tasks that happens whether the temperatures are 0 or 100.
And finally, Mike Abegg took this foto of Alice Oldendorff in the Brooklyn Navy yard, taking on
fuel. Quantico Creek and a Dann Marine boat (either Chesapeake or Discovery Coast) assist with this operation in the ice-choked area around the docks.
Thanks much to Darell, Sam, Bob, and Mike for these fotos.

Now here from Harbin, China is a completely other reaction to cold weather.
