in March headed back to South Street Seaport Museum.
I took the remaining photos, the one below as the lightship was bathed in fireworks light on July 4 this year.
The next two photos I took last week, trying to highlight Christmas red.
By the way, next week I plan a post of any work vessel–or replica thereof–decorated for Christmas in some way. I have a few already, but if you have such a photo to share, send it along soon. Click here for some Christmas-related workboat photos from two years ago.
Two older sister ships of Ambrose are Barnegat, LV 79, ex-Cape Lookout Shoal, and delivered on 1 December 1904, now languishing in Pyne Point NJ; and
Swiftsure, LV-83, ex-Relief, and delivered on 22 December 1904. I’m wondering if there’s a photo showing both vessels in Camden at the shipyard in –say–October 1904, just prior to delivery. I took both photos in summer 2010.
Going back to this record of New York Shipbuilding history, does anyone know what became of LV 88 Columbia River, supposedly sold to Japan in 1988?
The top two photos credit to Birk Thomas; all the others to Will Van Dorp.
Towed by Eileen McAllister, Molinari returned this morning. Note the twin lights near Sandy Hook in the background.
Standing by here, it’s Charles D. McAllister.
I’d heard once that a wooden “dam” was built on the bow of the ferry to keep water from coursing through during these open-sea transits, but that’s not the case here. Notice the missing lifeboat?
Once inside the Narrows, Charles D gets a line on the stern.
I’m told Newhouse will be next to visit Colonna. Does anyone know if there’s a “riding crew” on the ferry for these transits?

Let me share photos from three Eagle visits in the past decade. Here she arrives off the east end of Wall Street.
Note the teams hauling on the docking line.
Here she lies at anchor in 2011 with
crew in the rigging doing
And here are details I focused on earlier this week.
To reiterate what I wrote yesterday,read Captain Gordon McGowan’s The Skipper and the Eagle.

Storm Juno was all hyperbole in the five boros . . . not as harsh as in eastern Long Island and southern New England, but it was cold the day after. Nevertheless, Mary Alice and Cheyenne were hard at work,
as was Mister Jim.
The same is true for Barbara McAllister and
Buchanan 1 was at work.
The government boats were out like Liberty V and
Of course, cold means demand for fuel . . and Matthew Tibbetts was moving it , as
was Crystal Cutler.
Joyce D. Brown was moving the railroad and
Treasure Coast had a barge astern headed south. Anyone know what cargo was/will be in the barge?
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who went out to see the sights after the storm.
These photos come thanks to Allen Baker, whose most recent photos you saw here.
I’ll just use his description: “Heading east in the Long Island Sound on 27 December, just an incredible sky looking aft as we made our way east….
Tangier Island heading across the upper bay with the lower Manhattan skyline as a back drop,
Bering Sea overtaking … out of the old Port Mobil, Staten Island,
Crowley ATB Coastal Reliance, assisted by the Chas. D. and Bruce McAllister, inbound on the Con Hook Range, and
close up of the Coastal Reliance.”
I can be really happy to escape the winter temperatures, but nothing beats winter light!
Many thanks to Allen Baker for all these photos.
I’ve been thinking a lot about transitionings myself these days. I might have one coming soon . . . . More on that in a bit.
One summer as a kid I suffered from impetigo. I was terrified because I thought I’d end up scarred as badly as a neighbor . . . . Charles D looks to be suffering into a serious case of something . . .
most likely “prepacitis.” Her partner doesn’t seem to have great coating health either . . .
Alam Aman II might have been away from Port Kelang pretty long. . . . By the way, where is that port?
I had to look it up.
As for my own transitionings . . . well, I go in for a drug test tomorrow, if that tells you anything.
Not worried, though . . . I haven’t even had to study.
Here was the first time I used this title, which clearly needs to be used again.
Let me start here at 13:38. Note from far to near, or black hull to black hull . . . Cartagena, Four Sky with Lee T Moran, Red Hook, and Genco Knight.
Twin Tube slides through the opening between Bow Kiso and Genco Knight.
Even the bow of Genco Knight is crowded as their vessel prepares to dock and resupply the salt depot.
Kimberly Turecamo works the bulk carrier’s stern as Evening Star passes with B. No. 250.
Add McAllister Girls in the foreground and Ellen McAllister in the distance against the blue hull, which will appear a bit later.
McCrews heads westbound and Four Sky now seems to be doing the same.
Are you out of breath yet? Only 10 minutes has elapsed.
Linehandler 1 cruises blithely through it, supremely self-assured.
Cheyenne adds color.
Another line handler boat scouts out the set up . . . as a new blue hull arrives from the west, as
. . . does Charles D. McAllister.
Crew on the blue hull–Nord Observer–stows lines as they head for tropical heat, escorted
by Catherine Turecamo although
at the turn on the Con Hook range they meet Mare Pacific heading in with Joan Turecamo and Margaret Moran. At this point . . .
14:12 . . . the mergansers decided to hightail it . . . or at least follow their crests. And I hadn’t even turned around yet to see the congestion on land behind me.
All these photos in a very short time by Will Van Dorp.
My thanks to Brian DeForest and Atlantic Salt, whom Genco Knight was arriving to restock.
Here was 27.
Last week’s weather fotos from Brian DeForest . . . Atlantic Conveyer cuts through a hint of fog, assisted by Charles D. and
Next, two significantly different ship departure fotos from Phil Little. Norwegian Gem 2007, 965 ft., thanks to pod propulsion, backs out with no, no fuss, no slewing around. Notable is what’s not seen, harbor tugs!
rolls to port as it bears hard to get Splendor turned into the flow.
I took the remaining fotos here earlier this week . .. along a congested KVK.
I’m not sure what this container is.
My parting shot . . . Elizabeth McAllister assisting Zim Shang Hai.

Thanks to Ken, Brian, and Phil for these fotos.
This first foto is by a secret salt . . . showing Dory (1978) and Captain Zeke (1980) tandem towing beach-lounging 125′ deck barge back onto the water.
And . . . attributed by the watermark . . . fotos from last week before Janus chilled the town, Atlantic Conveyor gets an assist from Charles D. McAllister (1967).
Shelby (1978) also worked in the January fog. Thanks, Brian.
And the rest of the fotos are mine: the seldom-seen Specialist (1956?), here close and
Two Coasts . . . Chesapeake (2011) and Emerald (1973).
Resolute (1975) about to pass Düsseldorf Express (1998),
Many thanks to the secret salt and Brian DeForest for their fotos. All others by Will Van Dorp.
. . . aka a jumble.
Below, s/v Concetta meets Charles D. McAllister (Jacksonville, FL, 1967, 94′ x 29′) in late October.
Twin Tube (Blount, 1951, 64′ x 19′) passes the polytube rack. If you click on the link in the previous sentence, you’ll see the very next completed Blount project was of Ceres, a “grain elevator.” A google search turned up no fotos. Anyone know of any?
Bow Hector in the Kills a few days ago . . . now in Morehead City. Bow! Hector!
Taft Beach . . . shuttling dredge spoils, inbound.
Sludge tanker North River noses past 118,000-bbl barge Charleston.
On Marathon Day, this was Explorer of the Seas ( I think) approaching the Narrows, as seen past the stern of Transib Bridge.
A few days ago . . . it’s Challenge Paradise. I wonder if that’s ever a command. . . .
And at the same moment, crude oil tanker Felicity. By the way, I passed between felicity and challenge paradise . .. steering clear. Both vessels are currently southbound off the coast of the Carolinas.
Finally, in the Buttermilk, it’s MAST’s r/v Blue Sea, passing Wilson Newcastle and McAllister Responder. Responder and Charles D. are two of the triplets built near the end of the run at Gibbs Gas Engine, currently a place to sleep and stroll. The last time I saw Roderick-the third triplet– in the sixth boro was here.
