And now one more, taken this morning in San Juan PR by Capt. Neftali Padilla, it’s the arrival of the cranes towed by Capt. Latham after not quite an 18-day run. See the tow departing NYC here.  Thx much, Tali.

Thanks to Joseph Chomicz, it’s Capt. Latham in Port Elizabeth .  .  .

standing by the barge Atlanta Bridge . . .  So here’s my question . . . and answer will be located at the end of this post . . .  in quo vadis?

I’ve not seen this boat in a while . . . the 1958 Blount-built Vulcan III.

 

The “D” stands for Derrick Marine of Perth Amboy.

The current Kristin Poling stands by as Aramon is lightered before it enters the Kills.

Doris Moran moves Portland into the Kills, headed here for Shooters Island before following the channel around to the north.

Jonathan and JRT make their way home after an assist.

Mary Turecamo assists a lightered Aramon to a berth on the Arthur Kill.

Many thanks to Joe for the Capt. Latham pics;  all others by Will Van Dorp, who lacked his real camera to document the answer to the “where goest they?” question above.

Some older cargo cranes go San Juan-bound aboard Atlanta Bridge between Capt. Latham and Atlantic Enterprise.

A joy I felt on the Pacific side came from seeing North American boats in these new seas.  Capt Latham stood out unambiguously as US ATB when I spotted her at anchor on the Pacific side, and has now made her way into the Canal.

The lines on Algab also suggested a past life in the US, and in fact, she was a US Army tug known as LT-331, built in Mobile AL in 1942.  She’d also operated for Moran and Bisso.

Pipsa I,  here with barge Ecomar 1 and operated by Ecomar as a slops/bilge water collection barge, strikes me also as a US design.  Anyone with ideas?  This reminds me of deadend I met with this Cuban tug . . .

Yaman is a 2011 China built tug registered in Chile.

Smit Guadeloupe here assists MSC Channe.

In the container port of Balboa and awaiting orders lie (l to r) Smit Grenada, Smit Dane (maybe), Smit Balboa, and Smit Curaçao.

Don Lucho is Netherlands Damen built 2008 and now sailing under the flag of Colombia, literally.
