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.

In Montreal, with Habitat as backdrop, it’s Cavalier Maxim doing a Montreal-from-the-water tour.

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.

0aaaaph2

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.

0aaaaph3

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.

there.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Still see him?  I still heard his banging.

Greetings to the Shelby crew pushing scows northbound.

Driftmaster crew make a visual assessment of floating debris.

Way up high there on Torino . . . crew with a white apron, that’s not something you see every day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hail to the chef!

Here a crewman contemplates the state of the universe from the afterdeck of Laura K Moran.

Harvesting goes on in the springtime boro.

Crew of Stolt Sapphire pose for pics on the stern of their parcel tanker as the skyline of Manhattan cliffs passes by.

And here’s a good bookend to this post, which could otherwise go on and on.  Best wishes to Team Ocean Valour . . .

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.”

0aaaai9

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.”

0aaaapp

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.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

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!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

0aaaart99

Thanks to Ashley Hutto for the pyramids and Sand Master photos.  All others by Will Van Dorp.

 

It’s the summer station boat and a training platform for pilot apprentices.  Recognize the location?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The station boat is on the East River just east of Hell Gate.   From near to far, the bridges are the Hell Gate and then the RFK.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here she passes the Astoria Generating Station on its way to the channel

between the Brothers.

Frequent contributor Ashley Hutto caught the No. 2 westbound later in the day, here passing the bridge I’d be happy to sell you.

0aaaanj9

Click here for a story of a visit to the No. 2 station boat by Kristina Fiore.

Thanks to Ashley for the bottom photo.   All others by Will Van Dorp, who took photos of Peacock–an unusual pilot boat here not quite a year ago.

Oops . . . I “published” this prematurely and unintentionally if you saw it in disarray.  And by the way, today I saw the woodchuck and his shadow;  he saw mine and dove for cover.  I wonder if that means six more weeks of cold weather.  Please, someone advise.

From the wandering eye of Maraki . . . it’s in Nassau and

0aaaaop1

called Big Crab.  No further info.   I’ve never been to Nassau, and googling leads to me Nassau tugs on the bottom as well as someimpressive ones one the surface.  Maybe I need to get myself to Nassau.

0aaaaop2

And from a secret salt via Ashley Hutto . . . four days I saw Orange Sun depart the sixth boro here, he caught it inbound Tampa.  Thanks . . . salt.

0aaaaop3

Finally . .  from the jaunt captain Fred  of tug44, it’s what hibernates at the bottom of Lock 6 of the Champlain Canal . . . front to rear . . . HR Hawk, HR Beaver, HR Otter.  You’d think there’d be a woodchuck there too!

0aaaaop4

September 2013 I took this photo of a sibling of the hibernating tugs .  . HR Bass, assisted by Herbert P. Brake.    Interestingly, HR Bass used to be Delta Tiger, HR Hawk . . .  Delta Parrot, HR Otter . . . Delta Ram, and HR Beaver ???

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

. ..  Mr Lane.  I’ll bet you thought I’d say . . . Delta Woodchuck.

Many thanks to Maraki crew, secret salt, Ashley, and Fred.

 

I thought I had done a post called “pushing oil,” but I seem to have mis-remembered.  The closest I can find is here, and looking at this post, it’s clear to me how much I’ve learned since starting this blog.  Here’s another related one from last year.

Clearly . . . that’s not a tanker below.  Thanks to Ashley Hutto for this fine photo of Captain Zeke doing a job that might have been done by small tankers a few decades or less back.

0aaaapp1

Capt. Log is one such small tankers, and her life doing what she does so well is winding down.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here two Moran tugs–Brendan and Catherine Turecamo, I think–push a tanker into a berth on the KVK.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Davis Sea . . . once this would have been done by a tanker.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Ditto Dace Reinauer.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Thanks to Ashley for the top photo.  All others by Will Van Dorp.

As you know, I’m on the road in Georgia, but thanks to some good friends here are some fotos for your Boxing Day.  Back on the first day of winter, December 21, I got these fotos from Ashley Hutto:  Responder towing Ellen through the Kills.    Who knows . . . maybe this was a solstice version of Kills do-si-do?

0aaaaaamca1

Here from a few years back is a post featuring both Responder and Ellen.

0aaaaaamca2

And from Rod Smith, who labors on the site Narragansett Bay Shipping whenever he’s not working for bread-n-butter, here’s a shot by Rod in the wee hours of the same day, Haggerty Girls first trip to the sixth boro.  If you click here, you’ll see how Rod documented almost every week in the construction of this newest vessel in the sixth boro, taking almost 500 fotos over parts of three years starting from the time that two plates were laid down and joined.  Bravo, Rod, on this ongoing work.   That’s Matthew Tibbetts looking on.   Here’s more info on Haggerty Girls.

0aaaaaaopp1

Many thanks to Ashley and Rod.
