Basic foto blog today:  Miss Gill against the salt dock with Jose Stream …er … across the stream.  As of this morning, Stream is headed for  . . . Gulf of Mexico.

Patapsco in notch with Elk River having just given an assist.

Robert IV pushes a Hughes barge with a Vergona crane.

Check out the yellow truckable tug on the barge?  I don’t know that one.

A last shot of the small yellow tug with Curtis Reinauer (house up) in the background.

American Legion films us (my screen test?) as we pass;  Timothy L. Reinauer in the background.

OSG Vision is still in the boro;  compare freeboard at stern with three people in the small orange boat.  Also, that Thomas J. Brown pushing past with stone.

Another shot of OSG Vision, and

yet another, this one showing Volunteer (air draft 114′) again.  I’m positioned here closer to Volunteer.

Crushed stone in the foreground and the scrap piles of Clermont in the background (Jersey City), where Marillion (ex-World Trader I).

loads.  I wonder if there are any cut-up tugs on those scrap piles.  Has Privateer been located?

And all this is just two hours or so of my meanderings around the tiny bits of the sixth boro.

This is my version of Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a ...”.  Call this “Checking out Docks on a Hazy Morning,” the joy of which is finding the unexpected.  Like OSG Vision, here among the  giants.  The tug just astern Vision’s blue stacks is K-Sea Volunteer, air draft 114′ if my info is correct, making

Vision, docked here in Bayonne, NJ, the highest tug seat I’ve seen in the sixth boro!

Vision looks like a starship, and is as huge as one:  12000 hp!! and 153′ x 51′ x 26.’  Anyone know the air draft?

Find closer-up and clearer fotos of Vision from the fabulous Narragansett Bay Shipping site here, taken about a month ago.

James Turecamo and Zachery Reinauer passed by to

meet and greet (well, that’s interpretation, I know) also.  Ships in the distance are:  Horizon Discovery (ex-American Liberty, Sea-Land Liberty, Sea-Land Discovery, CSX Discovery… built by Sun Shipbuilding in Chester, PA in 1968) and Wallenius Wilhelmsen Fedora.
