Following up from yesterday’s post . . . tug Chesapeake is larger, more powerful than the other Patapsco-class tugs.  It also has more windows in the wheelhouse.  In addition, the photos of Chesapeake and Susquehanna were taken in Baltimore and Savannah, resp.; not in NYC’s sixth boro as were the others.

For today I’ll start with a mystery tug, one I’ve not found any info on.

I’d love to know more.

Also, in Baltimore, it’s Annabelle Dorothy Moran.

And another boat I know nothing about . . . McL?

New England Coast is another boat I’d never seen before . . . docked here at the Dann Marine base in Chesapeake City, MD.

And approaching Chesapeake City from the south, it’s Calusa Coast, a frequent visitor to the sixth boro. I photographed her first here, over eight years ago.

I’m always looking for “first-timers” like Sam.

Is this the one . . . Sterling Equipment, built 1972?  And it appears to have a Randive unit on the foredeck.

Tampa, nearly 30 years old, has seen some intrigue in its day.

Aha!  the small brown vessel beyond Eagle Baltimore . . . it’s December 1 and Eastern Welder has returned fishing to the sixth boro.

And a bit later, an IVS bulker named Kite passes the same tanker.

Now this fits in the Whatzit?!@!?  category.  A sloop named Jazz and a sportfisherman named T2 mooring off some sort of workboat I’ve never seen . . . .  Anyone help?

Whenever I see a silhouette like this under the Brooklyn Bridge, I suspect it’s a fairly new tugboat.  Today was no exception.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m guessing she was launched just before the Sandy event.

Annabelle Dorothy Moran, welcome to the sixth boro.   The last new Moran vessel I caught travesing the port was Mark Moran (last foto)  here and here.  Back in March 2011, I caught Hercules coming through too.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Into an early December foggy harbor she goes.   As of this writing, she’s already off Forked River, NJ.
