Atina was spinning to starboard before heading out to sea on a sixth boro ebb as a boost to the next port . . . in the Bahamas.

YM Witness, a great name, was

doing the same . . . the milk run down the East Coast.

Höegh Transporter had been pacing and anchoring and pacing some more off Long Island for the longest time, but just came in one morning, likely for fuel and supplies

Seatrade Blue finished its business here and headed for the next port, Jamaica, and then the big Canal.

Stream Pacific is a new name for me.  She was in, then out and after another stop, is heading back to the Gulf of Mexico.

Atlantic Sail is making its way eastbound across the Atlantic, as currently is

Constellation.

Nautical Sarah is long gone . . . to Indonesia.

Stolt Norland is heading for the Gulf of Mexico.

Mila is a 2018 ultramax bulk carrier.

Orange Victoria is still in town, as of this writing.

And more will come and go  . . . .  Some will never return, others will with the same name or another . . .

All photos, each a moment in time, WVD, who is seeking a moment canoeing up along NY, NJ, and PA.

Summertime and the living is easy, they say.  For some.  Enjoying an easy time on the water , that’s the life for some people.  . . .    Of course, rougher and tougher is better for people like Erik Aanderaa and adventures like this.      But on this enchanted late spring morning, a wave of yachts entered the harbor, here like  Second Wind, a Bayfield cutter ketch, and Tugnacious.

Tugnacious?  Remember I told you there were several boats by that name.  This Tugnacious appears to be an American Tug pilothouse trawler.

A Dutch yacht sailed in, judging by the flag.  It had a French name, I recall starting  with S, but I can’t remember it.

As crude VLCC (?) Atina left port–more photos of that later, Moonstruck, a Catalina 470, arrived.

I don’t know the manufacturer of all of these yachts, but I’d guess Pegasus, below, is a Fisher 37 pilothouse sloop.  I love the lines.

Jilleroo had such an unusual name for a US yacht that I looked it up, and I found the brand and sale price here.

All the gear on Autumn Borne led me to suspect she’s been sailing a while, and sure enough, if I read this right, she’s a Buffalo boat that’s been in salt water a while.

Done Diggin’ is a power cat from very near my old stomping  . .  . and  paddling grounds on the PowWow River.  They appear to be loopers who also keep a blog diary.

Ketch Bella Vita . . .  I’ve not found much, but it appears to be a sweet center-cockpit 45- to 50′ cruising boat with lots of room below.

And this . . .  I’m just speechless, for this 70′ to 85′ yacht to be roaring past a small fishing boat.  It’s no wonder their name is obscured.

All photos, WVD, who has his own unrequited summer boat lusts.. . .  for now.

Unrelated:  Remains of a very special PT boat were discovered in the Harlem River in recent days.  Thx to Justin Zizes for passing that tidbit along.
