Taken over in Newark Bay . . a shrink-wrapped airplane on a barge . . foto compliments of the team over at Henry Marine. I did this post in April 2013, but you should befriend them on Facebook at Tug Life at Henry Marine for a different take on working in the sixth boro. Anyone know where this airplane has gone/is going? Two of several previous posts with airplanes on barges are here and here.
Up near the Thousand Islands and the Canadian border, it’s Bowditch, foto compliments of Bob Stopper. Bowditch dates from 1954 and used to be called Hot Dog. More of Bob’s fotos from upstate NY and other places soon.
And last but not least, taken off New London during its schooner fest, it’s Malabar II, a 91-year-old vessel of John Alden design. Fotos of this timeless vessel come compliments of Rod Clingman.
Mant thanks to Rod, Allan, Bob, Maraki, and –last but not least–the crew at Henry Marine for permission to use these fotos.
Now some info on other people’s events:
and last but certainly not least . . . that’s a tugster foto below. Click here for details.
The newly named Patrice McAllister, sixth boro bound, experienced a fire near Kingston, Ontario. For the story, see boatnerd here. The Shipwatcher has the story here. Bowditch, ex-Hot Dog and here the rescue tug, was featured on tugster here back in 2010; see second foto from the end.
Foto taken almost 25 years ago from aboard sugar bulker Sugar Island, northbound in the Panama Canal. Being a sugar-dedicated bulk carrier would make this one sweet vessel.
I’ve now also added Ship Watcher to my blogroll.
