You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘Charles Hughes’ tag.

or maybe I could call these “roaring 20s” tugs in the sixth boro . . .

let’s start with likely the newest of these, maybe the newest in the boro, Charles Hughes, 3000 hp and 90′ x 34′ .

She’s a Salisbury-class, the fourth of that class from Chesapeake Shipbuilding.  

Another product of the 2020s, it’s James K, 2400 hp and 75′ x 30′.

She comes out of the Rodriguez Brothers shipyard. 

Jillian Irene is what AIS told me . . .

but that name is so new that the painting department has not yet caught up.  I thought her only recently the newest hull/name in the boro, but welcome the soon-to-be-marked Jillian Irene, a product of C & C Marine and Repair.

All photos, any errors, WVD.

Here was the the first in this series.

You can’t see the signage, but I have it on good authority that the 1982 Ellen S. Bouchard is now Jeffrey S.  And heading for the sixth boro is the 1982 ex-Rhea I. Bouchard, newly named, The Beatrice.

Also new to the sixth boro and only recently launched . . .  Charles Hughes, a 90′ x 34′ 3000 hp boat.  

Vane had an earlier tug, launched 1975, by the same name, honoring one of the founders.

And still fairly new to the boro, the 1976 Miss Madeline, in her new sporty Haughland livery. 

All photos, WVD, whose recent posts on newest hulls have feted big orange boats, like this one not yet in service.
