Many thanks to Pierre Kfoury for sending along this very clever photo in shades of black, white, and gray of Bruce McAllister he took up by New Hamburg, NY. In Pierre’s photo, I like those gray shades and gray reflections too.
More shades of spray take us to Emerald Coast, passing Chesapeake Coast.
Sitting out on deck has to be evidence of a warm heart on a vessel
that will miss Mardi Gras in a warm place.
Frozen spray reinforces the fenders maybe?
The glaze coats the hull with a very light-gray layer.
Even on this vessel with a hot name . . . the icy shading is present. Is it true that this tanker was briefly in port to deliver the love drug —phenethylamine— to those of us crowded on the edges of the sixth boro? A few years ago, this vessel was in the sixth boro with the name Golden Venus; for photos of her and other vessels with fantastic names, click here.
So . . 50 shades of spray? How about 56 or 65 or . . .spray, gray, play . . . ? The number is only limited by the imagination and the eye.
I had gone looking to get a photo of this vessel, but by the time I got to my favorite cliffs, they all have headed to warmer waters. And given the usual fashion of mermaids, I can’t blame them.
Thanks again to Pierre Kfoury for his photo. All others by Will Van Dorp.
Captain Willie Landers from 2001,
Chesapeake Coast 2012,
Eric McAllister 2014,
B. Franklin Reinauer 2012,
and Marjorie B. McAllister . . . the dean today, from 1974.
Wait . . . there’s one more, Lincoln Sea, shot in NYC’s sixth boro in September 2012 and built in Tacoma in 2000. She’s just traversed the Panama and is now back in her home Pacific waters.
Thanks to the Maraki crew for the first photo and to John Jedrlinic for the second. All the other by Will Van Dorp.
Storm Juno was all hyperbole in the five boros . . . not as harsh as in eastern Long Island and southern New England, but it was cold the day after. Nevertheless, Mary Alice and Cheyenne were hard at work,
as was Mister Jim.
The same is true for Barbara McAllister and
Buchanan 1 was at work.
The government boats were out like Liberty V and
Of course, cold means demand for fuel . . and Matthew Tibbetts was moving it , as
was Crystal Cutler.
Joyce D. Brown was moving the railroad and
Treasure Coast had a barge astern headed south. Anyone know what cargo was/will be in the barge?
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who went out to see the sights after the storm.
I gave up sending Christmas cards quite a few years ago, but I do put up a holiday post. I look for festive scenes, and this year my pick was not on a creek upriver, or on a barge on the river. This year’s does not involve Rockettes per se . . . . But right here on our very own Richmond Terrace, I did chance upon what might be an end-of-year dance. I think bowsprite started it and she just charmed the red-clad deckhands
into life! Whatever bowsprite did, the deckhands mimicked! I was so spellbound that I put down my camera and just watched, entranced.
Seriously but not too seriously . . be happy with yours and what you have.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who wrote this version of 12 ___ of Christmas a few years ago and made a modest proposal here after an inspirational trip to Gloucester. If you need some late gifts . . . or early ones for any event in 2015, check out bowsprite’s online shop here.
Specialist (Texas) is looking good for a 1956 vessel.
Dean Reinauer (Rhode Island, 2013) heads into the rising sun.
Eastern Dawn (Louisiana 1978) passes the hose rack.
Gramma Lee T Moran and Barney Turecamo in the KVK under an unsettled sky.
Caitlin Ann (1961, Louisiana) with tons of scrap.
Patrice McAllister (Alabama, 1999) stands by. Here was how she looked her first hours in the sixth boro.
Neptune (1992, Louisiana) tends the dredge along the Con Hook Range.

A search for a photo assignment sent me to the August 2009 section of the universe, and these photos served as a cold water shock . . . how much stuff has changed in under five years. Crow of course is as “good” as gone, but do you know which tugs are attached to Freedom and RTC 28?
How about Vernon C on Freedom and
Janice Ann Reinauer? In 2009 there was as much demolition happening on the Brooklyn side as is now crumbling on Manhattan side.
And from the same week . . . K-Sea was still in full force here. Where is Greenland Sea today?
And this classic . . . Kristin Poling along with fleet mate . . .
John B. Caddell, which as recently as last week was still awaiting the torches and jaws of repurposing.

Oh . . . this could be the first of many time warps.
To pick up where yesterday I ended . . . Chemical Transporter is not a ship. Rather it’s the barge married to–or at least in a relationship with–ATB Freeport.
This Workboat article makes clear the circuitous and costly ($91 million !@#@!) route this 150′ tug followed from keel lay to launch.
I’d love to see the interior of this 2007 vessel.
R. L. Enterkin is a tug I’ve seen on AIS for a long time, but the other day,
I finally got a close-up as she went out to pick up a “tail job” at sunrise.
At the head of the tow was Layla Renee.
Click here for many posts I’ve done on Resolute.
Thomas D. Witte–here passing off Wall Street– has carried many names since 1961.
Zachery Reinauer was launched nearly a half century ago at Matton Shipyard . . . up above the Federal Lock in Troy and right across the river from the boyhood home of Herman Melville.
Ellen . . . focus of countless tugster posts… as
has Brendan Turecamo.
And to close out this post . . . from M. McMorrow . . . the most intriguingly named tug of all . . . Tug of War.
The last photo from Mike and Michelle McMorrow, who’ve contributed photos here before. All others by Will Van Dorp.
Here’s the first in this series. David sent me some photos earlier this week and offered to write the commentary as well. Hence the quotation marks.
“Marie J. Turecamo steam harmlessly through the harbor.”
“James Turecamo makes a splash as she heads towards the Kill.”
Lincoln Sea sits patiently in the notch of the DBL 140.”
“Two displays of heritage in the form of New York State Marine Highway tug Margot and Ellis Island.”
“Herbert P. Brake pushes a scrap barge (possible future additions to her hull?) through the harbor.”
“Crystal Cutler pushes the Patricia Poling as Andrew Barbieri bears down upon her.”
My take: if a waterborne Rip van Winkle had fallen asleep 80 years ago and awakened today, the bridge and the light might be among the very few structures he would recognize.
“Stephen Reinauer steams lite through the harbor towards her next assignment.”
“Ever ready, ever vigilant.”
Thanks, David. The sixth boor’s the star here, IMHO. To post some corny doggerel in Poetry Month “collaboration is the game and “sixth boro” the star’s name!
I thought I had done a post called “pushing oil,” but I seem to have mis-remembered. The closest I can find is here, and looking at this post, it’s clear to me how much I’ve learned since starting this blog. Here’s another related one from last year.
Clearly . . . that’s not a tanker below. Thanks to Ashley Hutto for this fine photo of Captain Zeke doing a job that might have been done by small tankers a few decades or less back.
Capt. Log is one such small tankers, and her life doing what she does so well is winding down.
Here two Moran tugs–Brendan and Catherine Turecamo, I think–push a tanker into a berth on the KVK.
Davis Sea . . . once this would have been done by a tanker.
Ditto Dace Reinauer.
Thanks to Ashley for the top photo. All others 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.
