I do not try to group tugboats in posts by company, but in the past week I’ve noticed an inordinate number of Weeks boats in the sixth boro.  Let’s start with this shot of Trevor, which I caught yesterday.   Here are some previous Trevor shots.

Earlier I’d caught Trevor tailing a tow pull by Alexandra.  I might have to dig in the archives to 2009 and 2008 to find my previous photo of Alexandra.

Here was that tow, the Weeks 533, the flagship of the Weeks fleet.   The 1965 crane also has tragedy associated with it now.

A few days ago I caught Thomas and

Shelby over on the KVK.  Beyond Shelby here are Jill Reinauer and Brooke Chapman.   This was a first to see Brooke Chapman in the sixth boro.  Will she become a regular?

All photos in the past week by Will Van Dorp.  And speaking of Weeks tugs, I’d be happy to see Candace again.

My favorite Shelby photos have her towing the Starship Enterprise. and tailing here.

Here’s the previous in the series . . .

but for December 2016, Robert IV leads the way with season’s wreathings, at least the first I’ve seen.  All these photos were take on a windy day a week ago.
