Other Peoples Photos 81

From Capt Nemo, a few years ago, the 2000 Mary Gellatly high and dry and before she was Mackenzie Rose.  Also, I see Tasman Sea, Dace, an unidentified Bouchard, and Yemitzis. From KP, Dace getting her upper wheelhouse . . . over 10 years ago. From a Great Lakes Mariner, the oldest working ship on […]

Really Random Tugs 45

Here are all the previous installments of this series. Glenn Raymo caught this photo up the Hudson the other day, as Joker assisted a Weeks crane.  Hays tugs do come up here occasionally, but I’ve never seen them. Back almost exactly six years ago, the same boat headed upriver as a dead ship.  And eight […]

Really Random Tugs 43

Andrew J graced this port I’ve passed many times both by water and highway.  Any guesses where I took this photo?  I watched their July 4 2016 fireworks. Answer follows. That power plant opened in 1950 as well;  it’s shuttered and a plan to repower it from coal to natural gas has fallen through. Andrew […]

Fruits of Preservation 2

Here was the first in this series.  Guess the date these photos were taken? Consider all that coal smoke. As it turns out Dockyard III doesn’t always blow so much smoke. Click on this link if you wish, but what I find remarkable there is that Dockyard III and its sisters were built in WW2 for […]

Dutch Tugs 9

On a windy day recently in the Beerkanaal section greater Rotterdam harbor, Jan Oosterboer took these photos, passed along by Jan van der Doe. The small boats here are operated by the KRVE, self-translated as “rowers” but more likely we’d call them linesmen.  The more distant KRVE boat is alongside Smit Cheetah.  The link that follow […]

Dutch Tugs 8

These photos come via Jan van der Doe and were taken by Jan Oosterboer in the Lekhaven area of Rotterdam. Lingestroom, a Damen Shoalbuster 3512 design and launched in 2017, measures 114′ x 39′ and is powered by triple screw driven by three Caterpillar C32-TTA SCAC. Unrelated, notice the stack for the Atlanship SA orange juice tanker […]

Océan Blue 6

A 4300 hp product of a Collingwood ON shipyard no longer there . . . it’s Océan Basques. Here’s a better profile, taken a second earlier.  Basques provides ship assists in the port of Trois-Rivieres, QC.   Docked nearby in the same port, it’s Océan Bravo, slightly older and larger though less horsepower,  a product of Quebec’s  […]

Dutch Tugs 7

Again, these photos come via Jan van der Doe from Vianen at the Merwedekanaal, and taken by  Huug Pieterse from Arkel and Leo Schuitemaker from Klundert.  By the way, Klundert became a city in 1357! Noorderlight dates from 1941.  I’m not sure which small tug she’s towing. Wiepke, 1946. Zuiderzee, 1930. Maartje Anna, 1923. Finally, for […]

These photos come via Jan van der Doe from Vianen at the Merwedekanaal, and taken by  Huug Pieterse from Arkel and Leo Schuitemaker from Klundert.  By the way, Klundert became a city in 1357! I’m making an attempt at matching these up with some basic info.  So Storm dates from 1909 and David from 1947. Harmonie […]

Something Different 26

In the photos below you are looking at Time is Money, a famous parlevinker.  A what??! Well, have a close look and you’ll know . . . A parlevinker is basically a floating supermarket, or more like a bodega on the water.  In English it’s a bum boat, but when’s the last time you saw a […]
