Identity and ownership or affiliation can be read from vessel stacks.  Seeing the photo below with the gray, blue, and gold rings over a white stack . . .  you might know that could be only one of two vessels, USNS Comfort, which it is, or USNC Mercy.  Other USNS or Military Sealift Command vessels have appeared here on this blog.

CMA CGM Thames is one of many large (1100 to 1200′) container vessels in the world’s fourth largest container shipping company.  No vessels from the two largest container shipping companies are shown in this post.  Do you know what these companies are?

Hansa Meersburg is a much smaller containership, less than 600′,  that appears to run a feeder route between the Caribbean, Canada, and New York.

Seatrade has their “colour class” vessels, only slightly longer than 600′ but they offer lots of reefer capacity for round-the-world trade.:

This is a tug . . .  Andrea, recently re-logo’d from HMS to Centerline Logistics.

Mr Connor counts as an exotic, a Marquette Transportation Offshore vessel.  Another Marquette vessel that’s called here is Miss Emily.

Cosco has a number of 1200′ container vessels calling in the sixth boro, this one being Hope.  Moore on this huge conglomerate can be found here.

APL expands to American President Line, Ltd, a company that can trace its history back to before the Civil War.  Currently is a Singapore register company, part of the CMA CGM group.   Confused yet?    Yang Shan is a deepwater port, an island off Shanghai, created since the year 2000.

The BW Group, begun in Hong Kong,  is involved in many aspects of the energy trade.

SCF expands to Sovcomflot.  Victor Bakaev was Soviet Minister of the Merchant Marine from 1954 until 1970, and more.

Fairchem Endurance

And let’s end this post with Hyundai Merchant Marine vessel Hyundai Hope.

All photos recently by WVD, who hopes you notice some patterns here.

 

 

How’s this as an unusual perspective, East Coast coming through the Narrows and under the VZ Bridge, barely visible at top of photo,  with a sugar barge, not sure which one. I believe that’s a Sandy Hook antenna and West Bank Romer Shoal Light off starboard.

Kimberly Poling heads into the Kills past Robbins Reef Light.

James William has been moving garbage containers these days.

The intriguingly named Iron Wolf passes the Brooklyn Army Terminal.

Mary Alice moves Columbia New York.

A few hundred yards ahead of Iron Wolf is Sea Fox.

Andrea departs the Kills to pick up a fuel barge.

Mary H returns from a run with barge Patriot.

And finally, Fox3 heads southbound;  that’s the southern tip of Manhattan behind her.

All photos, WVD.

We’ve seen this before with entire fleets, as in the Kirbyfication . . . and Blueing . . . almost exactly a decade ago.

So check out St. Andrews now compared with then. Harley Marine Service, aka HMS, for a few weeks now has become Centerline Logistics Corporation, hence the orange stripe.

Andrea has gotten the new livery, including the lion on the stack.

Of the two boats that arrived here from Alaska not quite two years ago, Ernest Campbell has had the “centerline stripe” added,but not

the stack lion.

And C. F. Campbell has not been touched at all . . . as of this morning.

All photos by WVD.

 

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.

All photos by Will Van Dorp.

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, HMS 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.

All photos by Will Van Dorp.

By the numbers today, Daisy Mae,  launched in late 2017 and generating 3200 hp.

Joyce D. Brown, built 2002 and 2600 hp.

Matthew Tibbetts, 1969 and 2000.

James E. Brown, 2015 and 1000.

Dean Reinauer, 2013 and 4260.

Andrea, 1999 and 3000.

Elizabeth McAllister, 1967 and 4000.

Ellen McAllister, also 1967 and 4000.

Kimberley Turecamo, 1980 and 3000.

Joan Turecamo, 1980 and 4300.

Joan Moran, 1975 and 4300.

Miss Ila, 1962 and 2400.

All photos by Will Van Dorp; all numbers from tugboat information.

 

. . . 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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

What I found was Bluefin and

Morgan Reinauer and

Amberjack 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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Happy leap day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.
