Sometimes I know what these are or it is.  In this case, I don’t.  Photo is not the sharpest, but this cargo does intrigue.

Likely, the top photo and the two below are unrelated.  Ashley Hutto took the top on Sunday, and I took the bottom two Saturday.

The cargo on the barge pushed by Sarah Ann is uncovered and looks more like an art project, whereas the cargo pushed by Susan Miller looks more utilitarian, but I’ve erred before.

Do you remember this cargo from November 2012?  I knew what it was, but I would not otherwise have guessed that it would become

part of this.

Many thanks to Ashley for the top photo;  all others by Will Van Dorp.

It’s been a very long time since I last used this title, but here are some photos that make it work.  Where were these photos taken and what’s unusual about the crew you see along the starboard side of the foreground vessel?

IMG_3655

Close look.

IMG_3654

And later, same location . . . a different tug with the bow of a passenger vessel in the foreground.

IMG_3644

And the answer IS:  same place and same photographer as the previous time i used the title . . .  here.

Many thanks to Ashley Hutto for sending along these photos from Thailand.  I wish I knew what the story was with the barefoot crew on that top boat.

I took the photo below–near my neighborhood in Queens– March 21, 2015, exactly a year ago.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I took this photo this past weekend.  Question:  Where on Long Island is this light located?  Answer follows.  Be careful . ..  it’s a trick question.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Actually, here’s a clue.  And I don’t mean to be ornery . . . but water boat?  Are there land boats?  Air boats actually I’ve seen.  And stone boats I used for farm work as a kid.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

How about this one . . . any guesses on location of this tugboat?  Answer follows.

March madness?  See the hoop on

house of Bow Riyad, here last week and currently in the mouth of the Mississippi. And off to the right, it’s HMS Liberty.

Here’s a question I wish I knew the answer to . . . this pier currently exists just west of the St George ferry racks and 9/11 monument.  My question is . . . will it remain there after the New York Wheel construction ends?  Has anyone seen it already used to move in components of the Wheel complex?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s a closer-up of what I call Omega Beam, but if you want to add Trinity Prod Ucts . . . it’s fair.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’d love to learn more about this also . . . photo said to have been taken in Bayonne but I know not when or what.

Here’s a photo from Kyle Stubbs.  It’s AJ, a triple stacker recently arrived in the Salish Sea, sister of the sixth boro’s Andrea’?  Thanks, Kyle, a photo of this newcomer to the Harley fleet.

Here’s a clue to the tug question from earlier . . . answer is

Thailand.  Many thanks to Ashley Hutto for passing it along.

Now, for that Long Island lighthouse question . . .  it’s Long Island Head Light, located on Long Island in Boston harbor.

Again, thanks to Kyle and Ashley.  All other photos by Will Van Dorp.

Unrelated . . . Boaty McBoatface, you have got to be kidding, but here it is. Here’s NERC’s site.

 

RVs, as in research vessels, have appeared here before, but since a blog evolves, I’ve not started out with this as a series.  Previous RVs featured here have included Sea Surveyor,  Kaho, Marcus G. Langseth, and Bold once and twice.   I’ve seen Time and Tide several times in the past month, although I’m not sure which of the e4sciences projects were involved.

Ashley Hutto recently sent along photos of a formidable RV–Atlantis (T-AGOR-25), which is host to

0aaaatt3

DSV Alvin, a submersible likely everyone has heard of–or at least of projects it has been associated with.   And . .  to repeat a phrase from the other day, I can’t confirm the identity of the person showing scale, but lucky him . . . to get an audience with Alvin!!  DSV?

0aaaatt4

Thanks to Ashley Hutto for the bottom two photos.

RV Atlantis shares a name with the first research vessel Woods Hole (WHOI) used, a Danish-built schooner, which is still afloat and living yet another life as Dr. Bernardo Houssay of the Argentinian Navy.

MV Alice Austen‘s namesake was a pioneer photographer from Staten Island. The other ferry of the Austen class was named for another famous Staten Island artist here.

Rich Taylor, who has sent along other photos including this one, which I suspect MAY have been converted into a dredge scow, took this from near Yank Marine recently.  It’s the future NYWaterWay’s Molly Pitcher.  See more here.

Ashley Hutto took this photo recently of the grand dame taking on fuel and lube.

Also, from our Dutch friends, here’s a photo of semisubmersible floating platform vessel Hermod, which has accommodations for 336 people.  So . . .

these orange pods could be called “people removers,” essential and in need of regular drills.

Here’s a people mover–LARC XV-75– that for a time belonged to the Harbormaster of Bridgeport.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And finally for today, if a “people mover” is defined as a vessel that moves terrestrials through the water, then I guess this is a “mermaid mover,” moving less land-mobile water folk over the pavement.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thanks to Rich, Ashley, Jan, and Fred for sending along these photos.  If you send me a photo and I don’t use it right away, please be patient.  Photos not otherwise attributed are by Will Van Dorp.

Here’s the index.  Here and here are some from far enough back that you can note change on the sixth boro.

Any ideas on the photo below?  I believe that’s Robert Burton in the background?

0aaaaph1

Here’s the rest of that image.  The two photos come from Bjoern Kils of New York Media Boat, which has the story on their blog here.

This photo comes from Ashley Hutto, and shows what I would deem a risky rowing feat over between the tanker Fidias and unseen a barge landing at Bayonne.

I’ll have more Pacific Link photos tomorrow, but the crewman in yellow jacket and orange hat no doubt circles the globe like some of us circle the town.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Count them . . . three crew members standing watch.

Three fire fighters on M4, one of

four FDNY RIBs out on training.

I didn’t see the crewman at this point, but I heard him banging on metal structure with a crowbar . . . there under the third row back.

Still see him?  I still heard his banging.

Taken Feb 4 by Bjoern Kils . . . the spearhead.

Taken this morning by bowsprite, the onslaught of frazil ice.  Is that Amy C. McAllister pushing the Bouchard barge? Anyone guess the light tug in front of Ellis Island?

0aaaaifrazl

And taken yesterday by Allen Baker looking over the stern of Mediterranean Sea northward toward Albany, the state of the Hudson right now . . .

0aaaaii2medc

ditto all . . . here’s the view from the wheelhouse of Mediterranean Sea.

0aaaai3medc

And as if by magic . . . some pics of the same unit by Allen from a remote vantage point . . . coming with

0aaaai4medc

a sign of caution, unheeded

0aaaai5medc

in this photo by Bob Dahringer of a coyote on ice up near Catskill.  According to Bob, “Stephen Reinauer was following us upriver, they said the poor thing fell into the water when they went by him, but he got himself out.”

And finally . . . from Ashley Hutto and taken on Monday this week . . . the NSFW belle of winter in the sixth boro. . .

0aaaawinterbeaut

Thanks to Bjoern, bowsprite, Allen, Bob, and Ashley for these reports on the ice.

Know this superstructure?  Guess the date?

0aaaaop1

0aaaaop2

Know other boats on this photo?  Actually I don’t although I see some Eklof colors.

0aaaaop3

Here’s Mary Turecamo as she appears today, i think.  I took this photo in November 2009.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And frequent contributor Ashley Hutto send this along.  Can you identify the location?

0aaaaop5

And finally, from Walter, a frequent commenter here, a novel view of Alice discharging aggregates.

0aaaaop4

These photos come thanks to bowsprite, Russell, Ashley, and Walter.   Thanks very much.

Answers to the questions are:  Mary Turecamo photos were taken during the 1986 centennial of the Statue of Liberty.  And Ashley took the his photo over near the Goethals Bridge.

 

Here was 29.  (The apostrophe is making me lose count.)

Below . . . just in this morning from Ashley Hutto . .  call this “can’t sleep ’til I get to Brooklyn.”

From Jason Padgett high above Broad Street about a week and a half ago, part of a submarine on a barge entering the East River, and

0aaaapp1

from Jonathan Steinman, the same unit a little farther up the East River.  A little over two years ago, Birk Thomas took these of a similar cargo.

0aaaapp2

And from a secret salt . . . some months back, it MAY be the same tug as seen in dry dock but what would be a submarine perspective.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

From along the Maas and taken by Fred Trooster last week, it’s the restored tug Elbe.

0aaaapp4

From another secret salt . . . these are sixth boro waters to be kept in mind whenever you’re tempted to swim here.

0aaaapp5

0aaaapp6

The world is full of secret salts, another of whom sent this photo of Louisiana vessel with an intriguing name.

0aaaaaapp7

And finally, a photo I took . . . of a scrapyard with an alarming name, until you accept that it might be another language.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thanks much to Ashley, Jason, Jonathan, Fred, and all the secret salts who send me photos.   And finally . . . a photo I took myself, and I’ll leave you to guess where, a photo that goes along with an article Elizabeth sent me recently about an invasive species in Colombia.

The sixth boro has pyramids?

0aaaart1

It does have fortifications, here patrolled by Gelberman.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And lots of interesting names, making for great juxtapositions.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And every now and then some seldom seen boats pass like this one, always out there but rarely –it seems–coming in close.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Kendall J. Hebert for a closeup!

I regret I didn’t get a close-up of the stack.

So . . . back to those pyramids, there’re over by South Amboy, at Amboy Aggregates.  Sand Master is involved, of course.
