I’m reprising this from Troy, and it’s Lisa Ann.  I believe she’s 2012 built.

Governor Roosevelt is almost a century older, and wears 1928 on her name board now. This is Marcy NY, an Oneida County town between Utica and Rome.

Also at Lock E20, here’s a clutch of boats and floats including BB152, an unidentified and in the process of being repainted tender, a dredge barge, and BB 142.

Tug Erie is there too. Anyone know when tug Erie was built?

rc4

Farther along is 1932 tug Seneca, formerly of the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

rc5

Inside the H. Lee White Maritime Museum in Oswego, here’s a model of a Catherine Moran.

rc6

Here’s what the label said, but according to birk’s site, she’s still alive and well under the assumed name of  Sherry D.   Anyone have photos of Sherry D out in the SF Bay area?

On the freshwater sea called Lake Ontario, it’s another tugboat from 1928, Karl E. Luedtke.

rc7

Tucked away in Silo City of Buffalo, it’s Daniel Joncaire II, about a year old.

rc8

In the Outer Harbor of Cleveland, it’s 1954 Duluth and fleet mate

rc9

1956 William C. Gaynor.

And here approaching the south end of the Detroit river, it’s 1982 tug Michigan pushing barge Great Lakes.

Know the location?

I took it from a southernmost point in the Bronx looking eastward toward North Brother Island . . . the brick chimney to the right.  I can’t identify either the Weeks tug or the current usage of the red-and-white striped stack to the left.

What caught my attention was the pink breast cancer awareness ribbon on the front of the house of Mediterranean Sea.

By the time I got back to the sixth boro, the pink “M” on Moran tugs was once again white.  The only photo of a Moran tug I managed in the whole month of October was the one below, a photo of a photo of a Catherine Moran in the lobby of a restaurant in Lockport.  Label says . . . as you can read it . . . “Lockport 1939.”  Would this have been the vessel built by Neafie & Levy in 1904?

As to the pink ribbon, I was happy to see it.
