Geoquip Saentis is currently over in Bayonne.  Previously known as Toisa Vigilant, the 2005 build is 269′ x 59′ and Nassau registered.  I supose this means the US has no vessel that can do the work Geoquip Saentis is performing, called offshore geotechnical site investigation, i.e., figuring out more about specific locations at the “bottom of the ocean” than anyone has every before known.

The former Toisa fleet has been scattered to the seven seas, quite literally.  This is one of the first jobs this vessel is undertaking for Geoquip Marine.  Dina Polaris, which called in the sixth boro last year, is another one of the Geoquip vessels.

Berto L. Miller certainly looks exotic, although she is based in Staten Island, now.

Samantha Miller is a versatile vessel, self-spudding crane and offshore supply vessel, and is also equipped for fires.   I believe she was built in 1981.  Here‘s another post showing Samantha at work.

Berto L., 161′ x 49′,  was launched in 1999 as Justin Callais.  Miller purchased her less than 10 years ago and operated her in southern California.  Demands for a vessel like this shift, first out of the Gulf, then out of southern California, bringing her to the sixth boro.

 

All photos, recently, WVD.

 

With momentum gaining for more offshore wind farms, a raft of seldom-seen type vessels make port calls in the sixth boro.  This photo from Tony Acabono is an excellent example:  Geosea is not new, but she’s surely exotic.

Another from Tony, Berto L. Miller is new in town, joining two other Miller OSVs sometimes here, Rana and Josephine K.

And yet another set from Tony . . .  recognize this vessel?

Look at the design on the stack . .. .

It’s the return of Bear, as I first knew her, although she’s also been Catherine M. Brown and Elizabeth Anna.

And finally . . . here’s a photo of a vessel--Lois Ann L. Moran and barge Philadelphia–as seen from the “vessel,” the whatever-it-is in Hudson Yards. Those are LIRR trains in the foreground.  Thanks to my sister for this photo.

Thanks to Tony and my sister for these photos.  No photos here by Will Van Dorp, who is again off across the border.
