Random Tugs 300

The year 2007 spawned this series here.  Since you’ve stayed with this blog, I’m celebrating a milestone . . . the 300th post in this series.  Thanks for continued visits to tugster.  To honor this event, I solicited photos from you, particularly photos that’d never previously appeared on this blog.  I threw some of my […]

Ever F Class

When I started this blog, Evergreen presented itself in the sixth boro with their D class.  Then they added size and capacity with their L class.  Today for the first time, I saw an F class, Ever Focus.  I can imagine subsequent ships called Faith, Fruitful, Frugal, Friendly . . .  really I’m just guessing.    […]

2020 Calendar April and May

I did not forget in the beginning of April about the 2020 calendar enhancement;  there were just too any things going on! So today I both catch up, and get ahead.  And according to my accounting robot, today I post for the 4,500th time.  Champagne is spilling all over my editor’s floor, but he’s not […]

Random Tugs 286

All photos here were taken less than an hour after sunrise.  It’s commonly known that the golden hour is the best time for photos.   Mary Turecamo also headed out for morning work, not that this is anything but a 24/7 essential schedule. HMS St Andrews arrives with sunrise on its back. Has the HMS […]

Congestion 4

A harbor, different parts of it, can be a crowded place.  Here are some previous posts called “congestion.” Kyoto Express left first, after my arrival, passing some icons during her exit. Ever Legion departed next, leaving the US-flagged Overseas Key West at the dock.   Seroja Enam, ex-APL Poland, was arriving but being followed. Meeting […]

St. Lawrence River Wooden Traffic 1

This post follows on a similar one based on St. Clair River traffic .  . here. Would the captain below qualify as a “back seat” driver? He with his attractive runabout was taking part in this event . . . Wood like this truly makes attractive vessels. Zipper is a beaut, as is Glacier Girl. […]

Newest Hull in the Sixth Boro 6

. . . or at least among the newest. Above,  the new Governors Island ferry–I am a bit late with this but had not seen it until a few days ago–and the previous one–Coursen–meet.  For a vintage photo of Coursen with a USCG bowstripe, click here. I believe it carries vehicles as well as passengers, […]

MB 2019 B

Yesterday’s post covered some of the Wisconsin side of Lake Michigan.  Today it’s the Straits of Mackinac and part of the top of Lakes Huron. Mesabi Miner headed for the mills at the south of Lake Michigan.   Great Republic passed between Mackinac Island and Round Island. The following morning’s sunrise put golden colors on […]

Really Random Ships 1

Let’s try a variation:  I’ve random tugs and random ships, in which I’ve confined most pics to a single general location and a a single photographer . . . me.  “Really random tugs” combines locations, eras, and photographers.  So why not do the same with ships, although in this case I’ve taken almost all the […]
