Compare the bows of two tankers, Silver  Etrema and Alcyone T.

Take a bow for the bow of Bow Performer, 

And note the cascading flushing of

Front Cascade.

Spar Indus gets lightered before heading up the North River . . . with the bow of that barge loaded to the marks first.

Sider Miami and Andrea show their sterns to the camera.

Ditto YM Essence, which on the radio sounds like Y M S Ents.

Elantra Sea passes a berthed Kasos, as does

T Matterhorn, both showing more draft markings showing than Kasos.

We’ll end this post with MSC‘s MSC Mediterranean.

Wrangell, Alaska is almost 7000 sea miles from New York.

Harley does have a number of fleets, but the Olympic fleet

seems to have arrived in the sixth boro this month.   Ernest Campbell (1969) is one of several tugs that have retained the last name of the previous owner.

C. F. Campbell (1975) is another.

The other day they cooperated to get Long Island into a dock at IMTT.

Has this 60,000 bbl barge been sold out of Moran’s fleet?  If so, when did that happen?

 

Then last week I caught the 2012 Lighning in the boro,

a 2000-hp tug of the Gulf fleet.

 

The 1999 andrea (3000 hp) has been here for almost three years, if my recall is correct.

 

They’re all Harleys, along with Dr. Milton Waner, St. AndrewsHMS Liberty, and more.   And thanks to Kyle Stubbs, here and here are a set of Harleys from the Pacific Northwest.  And here’s one more . . . from San Francisco.

. . . upon.  That’s what happened when I was just minding my own business the other day . . . and a voice calls my name and “Be careful.  I could have thrown you to the fishes,” he said, before showing this photo below.

Getting USNS Red Cloud,  Helen Laraway, Andrea, and Sea Wolf into a single frame had been my aim just seconds before.

No matter.  Here goes Lucy Reinauer pushing RTC 83.

I think Stephen-Scott was headed for a barge out beyond Gulf Service with GM11103.

What I found was Bluefin and

Scott Turecamo with barge New Hampshire.  And more.

And maybe getting kept upon and thrown to the fishes . . . might just work out alright, although watch out for shadowy characters like the lurker over there.

It made me think about a day a mere 100 or so days from now when photographers photographing get photographed themselves.

Happy leap day.

Here’s what I put up last leap year.

All photographs here–except the obvious two–by Will Van Dorp.

 

Here are the previous five in this series.

Triple engine/screw/stack Andrea’ might be the “newest” tugboat in the sixth boro.  All those triples is not something you see every day.  Of course, in the inland waters quadruples show up some time.

My question is . . . why

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

is there that apostrophe after the terminal A in Andrea’  ?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

But briefly back to the triples . . .  here’s a photo I took near the Ohio/Mississippi confluence just over three years ago of American Pillar.  Click here for other Mississippi boats I photographed back then.   Any idea where/when  American Pillar came into service? Answer follows.  And Andrea’  ?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

American Pillar is here, Nashville, 1976.  Andrea’ is Houma, 1999.
