The first two and last two photos here come thanks to John Jedrlinic . ..  aka Jed.  He took these of Marlin in Baltimore in late July 2009. Has anyone heard of/seen it since it was sold foreign? The next batch were taken in the Beerkanaal area seaward of Rotterdam in early March (I think) by Jan […]

Thanks to the many folks contributed to this post. First, Russell Skeris sent this along of a James Turecamo in Turecamo livery.  Given all the flags, might this have been taken by an unknown photographer quite near her launch in 1969?

I believe I took this in summer 2005, my first view of Lincoln Sea from W. O. Decker.  Lincoln Sea is now making its way northward probably along Baja California, if not already along alta California. A few days ago and from the crew of Maraki–aka my sister and brother-in-law–it’s Salvatore in Santa Marta, Colombia. […]

The difference between “really random” and just “random” is that with the former, I include photos taken in different waterways and ports.  Guess the ports/waterways here? All these photos have been taken during the past 30 days by Will Van Dorp, who needed to do a random __ tugs post to dispel notions that this […]

With many thanks to Tony A for the top two photos . .  it’s possibly the latest arrival in the sixth boro. And the bottom photo is about as far from the sixth boro as you can get and still be in the Empire State . . . Kurt R. Luedtke, caught here on the […]

Let’s start with LT-5 at the H. Lee White Maritime Museum. Here’s The Chancellor at the NYS Canals dry dock as it was being flooded.   Here’s a recent tugster post focused on this vessel. Now the marketing name for this “tug” is a “barge pusher.”  Here’s a closer up of the engine unit and […]

Name this tug headed for sea as the sunset bathes it in ruby light? I guess this could turn into a precious materials post.  Hobo, this gold tug at the Costello shipyard in Greenport, appears to have been built 61 years ago by Caddell’s Drydock & Repair.  At this dock, it waits under the protection […]
