Here are the previous iterations of this type.

This morning photo sets it up.  Bert Reinauer passes Galveston as another sun rises.

Bert, launched in 2018 is 118′ x 40′ and mated to RTC 165, a 150k bbl barge.

She’s powered by a GE 8400hp Tier IV set of mains.

Galveston, 144′ x 46′ and seen here two hours past dawn, was launched in 2008, and mated to Petrochem Producer, a 156k bbl barge and powered by a set of Wartsila 9L32 mains generating 12,000 hp.

Pacific Reliance, 122′ x 42′ and launched in 2006, generates 9280 hp from a set of Cat 3612s.  She’s mated to 650-1 with capacity of 178k bbl, I believe.

All photos recently by Will Van Dorp, who hopes his sources are and have been transcribed accurately.

A previous Galveston post can be seen here, and a previous Pacific Reliance here.

 

Pacific Reliance (9280 hp) transfers cargo before heading to Texas . . .

with the 155,000 bbl barge 650-1.

B. Franklin Reinauer (4000 hp) passes by

with RTC 82 (80,000 bbl, if I read that right)

and Austin (3900 hp) eastbound here light.

Dean Reinauer (4720 hp) moves westbound under the Bayonne Bridge.

Foxy 3 (1600 hp) and Brooklyn (2400 hp) wait at the dock west of Caddell Drydock.  Foxy was previously Barker Boys, and this Brooklyn, Labrador Sea.

Brooklyn on her way to a job.

Delta Fox (1200 hp) and Morton S. Bouchard IV (6140 hp) tied up here  just east of Foxy 3 and Brooklyn.

Morton S. Bouchard IV makes up the next three photos here:  in front of a Saint Lawrence like eglise

against the Brooklyn skyline, and

and still more in front of T-AKR-306 USNS Benavidez.

And let’s finish up with Patrica (1200 hp) and Robert (1800 hp).

Quick.  Name this unit . . . or at least the current and previous operators?

I haven’t seen many Gateway Towing tugs along my usual haunts, but here’s Connecticut.

Nanticoke, about 10-years-old now, the second of the Patapsco 4200 hp class, pushes a payload enclosed in Doubleskin 305.

Pacific Reliance, at the dock, is made up to the 650-1, whose capacity is 155,000 bbl.

So . .  that unit in the top photo is Genesis Vision, formerly Superior Service

pushing GM 6508. Here was a photo of the tug as Superior Service, only four years ago.

All photos by Will Van Dorp.

And if you have not seen it yet, here’s an 18-minute video of the saga of the former Katie G and Colleen McAllister, which I captured the first hours of here as they headed east on the East River on their long journey to western Michigan. Here was my Part 2 of that voyage, with collaboration from colleagues.

Here from eight years ago is Katie G moving petroleum product and remaking a tow right off the Battery.
