This photo by John Curdy shows Dace Reinauer as she looked some time before 2008.
I took the rest of these photos, including the one below showing the same boat in October 2009. The next one was
early November in Narragansett Bay post-modification and during sea trails and
taken by Rod Smith, and
here was later November 2015 in the sixth boro. The changes are more subtle, but if you compare the stacks, you’ll see the pairs has grown.
Go Dace!! Thanks, John and Rod.
Again, this post and the next dozen and a half or so have been “scheduled.” I’m out of touch for a while.
Before I left, I’d modified the “About the photos” section. If you feel so inclined, have a look at the first paragraph and comment.
Given that “154” number, I had to check when I started this series. Although there’s a search window on this wordpress blog, it’s not always the most efficient. It took a while, but I started the series in October 2007 with this prototype, this post. A couple of things I notice right away include that photos don’t “enlarge” themselves when you click on them, I tended to use fewer photos back then, and IMHO the photo and text standards were just lower than now.
One of the goals of this series is to spotlight any new boats in town, from a very subjective PoV, but here’s one. It’s Pops, which I saw from a distance in the 8th photo in this post from two months ago. It seems Pops was built in 1961 and is registered south of Savannah GA.
Charles A used to be Lucinda Smith, but I can’t tell if she used to be THIS Lucinda Smith. I think so, but they’ve modified her a bit.
Here’s an example of a photo which would have sent me down the road to the west if I’d seen the background. Capt. Willie Landers . . . have seen her before, prominent mast, but in the background beyond HMS Liberty is the sixth boro’s latest triple screw . .. . Andrea. I only noticed that third tug in the background when I was home looking at it on the computer screen.
Can you identify this Reinauer ATB from this angle?
I guessed wrong . . . it’s Haggerty Girls with RTC 107.
Eastern Dawn . . . heads east with a fuel barge, and I forgot the barge she was pushing.
Larry J. Hebert works up here with various dredge projects.
And finally . . it’s another shot of Pops.

No, I haven’t left the sixth boro. Just yesterday I crossed paths with Allie B here at Atlantic Salt, purveyor of a safety product and patron of the arts.
It took a gray day for me to notice that the house colors along the KVK are reminiscent of those in coastal Canadian maritimes towns. Allie B has been one of my favorite tugboats since I saw her depart on her epic tow here and here back in 2009.
Then I passed Evelyn Cutler, here with Noelle Cutler at Caddell Drydock. Those are basic Wavertree masts in the background. I first saw Evelyn
Here’s a first good photo of Dylan Cooper, the Reinauer tug that arrived in the sixth boro later last year.
I hope to get another of her here in a few years when that bridge is completed.
I believe Eric is the newest of McAllister tugs in the sixth boro. And yes, here Eric is using her 5000+ hp to assist Atlantic Star, ACL‘s brand spanking new CONRO vessel into port yesterday on her maiden voyage. I hope to have a post dedicated to Atlantic Star completed for tomorrow.
Eric is a product of the same Rhode Island shipyard that produced Dylan Cooper. In the distance that’s one of ACL’s previous generation of CONRO vessels, Atlantic Concert. Here’s an entire post dedicated to Atlantic Concert from 2009.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, with thanks to NY Media boat.
And yes, I still have more of Barrel’s vintage USACE photos to share.
So, below . .. it’s a light Stephen-Scott, which way be the oldest vessel (1967) in the Reinauer Transportation Company fleet today.
Morgan Renauer (1981), here pushing RTC 101, was originally built for Poling Transportation.
Jason Reinauer (1968), up in Albany since last winter’s ice, dates from 1968.
Laurie Ann Reinauer (2009), dating from the first generation of facet tug construction, moves RTC 85.
B. Franklin Reinauer (2012) is the first of the second generation of facet tugs. Click here for a Professional Mariner article on what a “facet tug” is.
Reinauer Twins (2011)–referenced in that PM article above–if compared with the photo above, shows design differences between the two facet tug generations.
Dean Reinauer (2013) is similar to Reinauer Twins and
Haggerty Girls (also 2013) resembles B. Franklin Reinauer.
Kristy Ann Reinauer (1962) either has been of will be scrapped.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who accepts blame for any errors in information and who would love to see a launch at the Senesco yard, where many of these have had their first splash.
Kristy Ann 2000 hp
Jason 2000 hp
Stephen Scott 3400 hp
Morgan 3900 hp
B. Franklin 4000 hp
Laurie Ann 4720 hp
Twins 4720 hp
Dean 4720 hp
See that tug over there? This photo comes from Asher Peltz, and I’m very grateful . . .
because I was seeing the tow from this angle, quite backlit, but
fascinated nonetheless, given the load
on Marmac 300 . . . parts of the turbine bases for units 3, 4, and 5 of 5. See the base for unit 1 here. At the pace the tow is moving, it’s barely to Montauk as of this posting. By the way, for scale, the tug is 97.7 ‘ loa.
Here’s Stephen B in a logical though unlikely location.
nestled between Manhattan Elite and Celestial.
Dean Reinauer sidled over to my part of the Kills, and I got a good look. Thanks.
This Dean has been at work for just over two years. Click here to see–along with some other departed vessels– the previous Dean Reinauer, currently in Nigeria under different ownership.
Bluefin appears to have just been painted, as the lettered Kirby logo has not been applied.
The last time–I think–Bluefin was on this blog she was still gray.
Here’s Robert Burton in yesterday’s strange pre-rain light and here
at dawn yesterday interestingly backlit though not quite. A couple of years ago, I caught her down in Morehead City.
All photos taken yesterday. Thanks to Asher for the lead photo here.
Laura K Moran first appeared on this blog back in 2008 here, as the sixth boro’s newbie.
I’m not sure the story here, but Laura K holds station off the stern of MSC Sariska, who still has the hook down.
Brian Nicholas and Evening Mist head out on assignment.
Here’s an entire post I devoted to Brian Nicholas over four years ago.
For a frontal view of Evening Mist, click here and scroll.
Here Miriam Moran escorts Hoegh Inchon. ROROs’ cargo is quantified not in teus, but ceus, and Inchon is a 21-year-old floating parking lot with 4300-car equivalent capacity.
Maryland and Franklin Reinauer meet, with missions taking them in opposite directions.
And with Red Hook we end.
Happy springtime, like it was in the photo below, showing Huron Service about seven LONG years ago.

Unrelated: The post about the documentary Graves of Arthur Kill seems to be getting a lot of attention the past few days. Gary Kane and I can always figure out a time when one or both of us could do a screening for a group you put together.
