Random Tugs 266

It’s been a few months since number 265, so let’s catch up. Kimberly Poling had brought product upriver via Noelle Cutler, and you can tell some time has passed since I took this photo by the foliage. Edna A was assisting a crane barge working on the power lines near Hudson NY. Challenger came in […]

Random Tugs 224

What does a 70+ degree temperature day in February in the sixth boro look like?  Well . . . see for yourself.  Cornell light and likely back from a TOAR training, rafts up to Mary Whalen in Atlantic Basin. Along the Brooklyn shore, there was Genesis Glory with GM11105. Brooklyn–ex-Labrador Sea–light was headed for the […]

Random Tugs 207

This no-nonsense machine . . . I can show you but tell you nothing about.  I don’t know. Nearby,  Haskell was built  in 1936, but that’s all I know. The photos above I took in Holland MI, and the rest  . . . in Sturgeon Bay, WI  Chas. Asher dates from 1967, and I know […]

Random Tugs 203

except “random” here  just means in the order that I encountered them on my all-too-short gallivant around Wisconsin. In Sturgeon Bay, I finally saw the 149′ x 27.8′ John Purves, built in Elizabeth NJ in 1919, definitely retired now but looking great as part of Door County Maritime Museum.  John P. Holland had some connections […]

Really Random Tugs 38

Really random means just that . . . so that’s start with this one, Tutahaco, YTM-524, which has recently been hauled out of the water  between Daytona and St Augustine.   Michael Schmidt took these photos back last winter. She worked for a time in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The next two photos come from Allan and […]

Random Tugs 164

I suppose I could call this RT 163b, since the photos in both were taken the same day, same conditions of light and moisture. Let’s start with Charles D. McAllister with Lettie G. Howard bare poles in the distance. Evelyn Cutler with Noelle Cutler is tied up alongside a barge with Wavertree‘s still horizontal poles. Click […]

Wavertree at Caddell Dry Dock 5

As a review, here and here were the posts I did on Wavertree going TO Caddell 11 months ago, and here is the series 1 through 4 focusing on Wavertree AT Caddell’s. Below was she on March 10.  While I was away, she was refloated. Below is March 19.  To my surprise, the masts had […]

Random Ships 45

Here’s an index to the 44 prior posts by this name.  CMA CGM Parsifal here is heavily laden, looks huge–and for the sixth boro is one of the largest that have called to date–almost 11oo’ loa and around 8500 teu-capacity, but relative to the current largest container ship in the world is smaller by half, […]

Random Tugs 153

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 […]

Wavertree to Caddell Dry Dock 1

But first, many thanks to Bjoern Kils of New York Media Boat for the enjoyable ride aboard his RHIB Amundsen.   I’ve decided to divide the photos into two posts.  These cover the first 15 minutes (!!) of the trip to the yard. Bartholdi was finishing up his copper creation a year AFTER Wavertree began […]
