And then it was a sunny but cold day, the coldest so far in the sixth boro. ut the light was great.
B.Franklin Reinauer headed for the fuel stop,
followed by a group that included
and Doubleskin 40 pushed by a mostly self-effacing Fort McHenry.
Later Tarpon raced past, as
did Mister T and
Chesapeake moved her barge eastward.
Out in Gravesend Bay, Ruth M. Reinauer and Linda Lee Bouchard swung on the hook.

This is the series for photos from all over.
First, from Bob Stopper, who makes it his business to –among other things–document Erie Canal life up in the county where I grew up, it’s . . . can you guess what’s under all that snow?
It’s a hibernating Grouper. I’ve done more than two dozen posts on this boat, which I keep hoping comes back to life. Here’s a post that shows her working on the big lakes, the northern coast of the USA.
Dutch tug turned yacht Itinerante (ex-Havendienst 1, Vulcanus).
Here’s one of my photos: that’s Iver Foss tailing the big ZPMC Shanghai-built crane as RORO Hoegh Shanghai follows them in through the Narrows last week.
Some photos from Brian DeForest . . . Joyce D. Brown delivering a crane barge as
RORO Don Juan rolls some vehicles off and some others on over in Port Newark.
Here’s are two photos lacking a photographer both showing Tradewind Towing Rachel powering
USS SS Mount Washington AOT-5076 on its final voyage. The photo below I screen-grabbed from the Crystal Serenity, which is now off Japan. Mount Washington is at the scrapyard and Rachel is preparing for the next job.
This photo comes from the Gatun Locks webcam.
Bowsprite caught these three last week: apparent L to R, Arabian Sea, Mediterranean Sea, and Patricia in Red Hook.
Thanks to Bob, Lucy my sister, Franco for standing in the cold with me at the Narrows, Brian, bowsprite, and the remote cameras for these photos.
Here was ASB 2. There might be eight million stories in the naked city, but in its primary boro aka the sixth boro at least half again that number of other stories could be told . . by the collective whoever knows them.
Captain Zeke moves with the diverse stone trade past folks waiting below our very own waving girl and
all those folks waving and taking fotos from the ferry and every other water conveyance.
The 1950 Nantucket‘s back in town . . for the winter.
Yup . . . no one could have predicted these . . .
back when Shearwater was launched in 1929.
A cruise ship shuffles passengers as Peter F. Gellatly bunkers.
Kristy Ann Reinauer stands by a construction barge.
A barge named Progress has returned to South Street Seaport Museum, here between Wavertree and Peking.
Emerald Coast is eastbound on the East River.
Two views of Adirondack, one with WTC1 –or is it 1 WTC or something else–and
another with the Arabian Sea unit.
And Sea Wolf heads north . . . .

All these fotos–except the ones identified as flashbacks–I took while resting yesterday. The indomitable Helen Parker, intrepidly westbound among giants. I believe she was last on this blog a year ago here.
I believe this is Coastline Bay Star. If so, when did she get the reconfigured exhaust route?
Also squeezed between giants, James Turecamo, who has appeared on this blog possibly more than any other tugboat. James was launched in greater Waterford, NY late in 1969. Click here to see James tailing Caddell’s new drydock back in May. More on this flashback later in this post.
Hunt Girls, which I haven’t seen in a while.
AT IMTT Bayonne Dean Reinauer and RTC 106, which appeared on this blog last week, configured differently. Dean is so new that if you go back to that link with the foto of James tailing, you’ll see the upper house of a Dean which at that time had never yet floated!
Here are two flashbacks from Port of Albany last week . . .
as Dean spun around to head south.
Dorothy J eastbound yesterday morning
and as seen in mid-May 2013 . . . with her former name–Angela M–visible.
Arabian Sea‘s angular sides are mimicked by the building in the distance.
Quenames heads out of the Kills pushing
And check out the stack on St Andrews. Maintenance or . . . something more?
All fotos except for the flashbacks . . . Will Van Dorp took yesterday.
As I post this, Hurricane Isaac approaches New Orleans, and the work of every mariner on the river is to ride out the storm. Even if it appears that almost nothing is moving on the river, movement is there and intense. Click here (now) for live views on the street and on the river in the Crescent City. To see what Isaac looked like over in Florida from Jed’s perspective, click here.
In the sixth boro, a race is a few days away, but vessels like Susan Miller--pushing the barge with the “rolled on and about to be rolled off” trailer–are at work.
Ditto an unidentified DonJon tug, Pati E. Moran, inbound
CMM CMA CGM Eiffel, and schooner Pride of Baltimore II go about their business.
Having “rolled-off” said trailer truck, Susan distances herself from Mary Whalen (just the bow at the starboard stern of the cruise ship) and Queen Mary 2.
Viking moves a barge through the KVK,
as does Arabian Sea and
Gramma Lee T Moran, and
the list could go on. Here, Doris Moran and Dace Reinauer . . . that’s tug work too. This last foto below comes compliments of Marian & William Hyman. Thanks.
All other fotos taken by will Van Dorp, who will be at the race Sunday. Thanks for reading.
. . . and on a rainy day. Here was 1 in this.
Note the crewman entering or departing President Polk by the access doorway. Doubleclick enlarges. Can you name two institutions that opened while Polk, 11th, was president?
As Larvik slides over to its berth, the linemen prepare to run the lines to the bollards.
Lateral sliding power gets provided by McAllister Sisters and Resolute.
Barbara is not forgotten.
Sorry . . . I couldn’t resist.
Amy Moran reminds me . . . where is Cape Cod these days?
Baltic Sea I rotates off the dock and heads for sea.
Bruce A. McAllister delivers the pilot.
On its way to assist in Baltic Sea I departure, McAllister Sisters passes Maersk Utah.
Answer to the question on Polk, the president, was incumbent for the creation of the US Naval Academy and the Smithsonian. More info on him here.

Kirbyfication, which looks
Others, like Miss Yvette take things much more in stride from here (third foto down) to June 2011
this one last week. And a year from now, as she plys waters off Equatorial Guinea . . . what will that look like?
one of my sources was of no value.
