I’ve done “new hulls, new names” and “old hulls and old and new names” and “new hulls, lines, and liveries.”  Sorry I could not have come up with more streamlined nomenclature.

But I hope, as always, you enjoy these photos all taken on an ideal last day of summer.  If summer has to end, this is the way to see it . . . no wind, low humidity, and clear skies.  Polar Circle came in two days ago here, and I was too far away and detail was lost in the early afternoon haze, but yesterday I caught her before she returned to the Long Beach anchorage.

I’m guessing she took on supplies here after an almost seven-week voyage from Busan.

She’s big but Cape Wraith tempers that size.

Miss Madeline came in on Prometheus just over a month ago, although she had a different name then.

As I said, yesterday was the perfect time and place to see her close up.

 

Welcome, Miss Madeline and crew.

 

All photos, last day of summer 2022, WVD.

 

Here’s a March 2017 photo of Evening Mist, one of many I took over the years, 

her big tugboat lines lessened by this the second upper wheelhouse she had carried.  A previous one she had as Captain Dann. 

She was recently transformed again, and a few days ago I finally caught Evening Mist in her new livery . . . 

H is for the Haughland Group. 

And she looks great for a 1976 tugboat.   I look forward to seeing more of the Haughland Group.

All photos, WVD. 

Let me interrupt my “out of the bayou” aka “regular programming” posts to a) announce my return to the sixth boro and b) update you on some exciting cargo that arrived in the sixth boro earlier this week.  For the first 4 photos, I’m grateful to Benjamin Moll, since I had not yet returned here when he took those.

But first, do you remember 20 Barges, the post about a delivery of that many barges on a barge in June 2016?  This is similar. Tradewinds’ Caitlin came into the sixth boro with barge Prometheus, seen below.   Prometheus is a large 300′ x 100′ barge that came to the sixth boro at least once before and reported on here, back in spring 2019.

Two tugs also tagged along as cargo.

 

Eastern Dawn provided the assist.

I took the rest of these photos.  By the way, as of today’s posting, Caitlin and Prometheus are still in town, over by the Weeks yard.

The new vessels will operate for the Haughland Group. More on Haughland tomorrow before I return to my Gulf of Mexico reporting.

Sarah D was assisting over at Weeks yesterday.

 

Many thanks to Ben for sharing his photos. Some previous posts with Ben’s photos can be seen here.

Any errors can be pinned on WVD, who provided the last four photos.
