Way more tankers come to the sixth boro than you might conclude from tugster.  Here’s a sampling from the past month . . .

Front Clipper, launched in 2017, is a 157351 dwt crude tanker.   She’s currently on her way to Pemex’s Yuum Kak Naab, in Mexican waters, and said to be the world’s largest FPSO.  I’m always skeptical of superlatives.

Chem Singapore (2015) is an oil products tanker, 19996 dwt.   She’s currently in Houston via Altamira MX.

SCF Irtysh, 2009, is a 49,999 dwt oil products tanker, currently in Iceland.

Aitolos is a 2020 114,000 dwt crude carrier.  She’s currently in Corpus Christi by way of Whiffen Head, NL . . . that’s Newfoundland.

Tenacity Venture is 2017 114,439 dwt crude tanker, currently heading for the huge refinery at Pointe a Pierre, Trinidad & Tobago.

NS Laguna is a 2007 crude tanker with a dwt of 1115,831, and currently heading for Point Tupper,  where Jack Ronalds does his work.  I hope to get up there once the border opens again.

Bastille Street is a crude tanker dating from 2011, with carrying capacity of 47,906 dwt.

She’s currently Amsterdam bound.

She looked newer than 10 years old.

Marjorie B. McAllister is one of those tugs that confused me when I first started paying attention.  Below the house is down, and

and here the hydraulics have raised it up to look over Bulkmaster.

Ava M. McAllister‘s elegant lines are shown off as she assists a tanker to the Arthur Kill.

Cohoes on the Hudson River was the launch site of Mary Turecamo, the last tugboat to be built there.

Thomas D. Witte originally had a telescoping wheelhouse to fit under bridges on the Erie Canal and elsewhere, but I’ve never seen photos of that superstructure.

Ever sharp-looking 2006 Pegasus goes to a job.

The veteran Ellen McAllister escorts in a tanker.  I’ll do a tanker post here one of these days soon, maybe later this week.

Capt. Brian heads eastbound on the KVK to a job.

Pathfinder is rarely seen light, but here she heads over to pick up the TUP at the trash transfer station.

Twins . . .  at the 10-year mark . . . looks to need some TLC.

Here was Twins a minute earlier, coming out of a busy but typical traffic pattern on the KVK.  I count five tugboats besides Twins.

The mighty Patrice powers her way east to pick up a job.  Note the crew aboard Chem Singapore.

And to end this post, which of course could go on and on, the 4610 hp Doris powers along a container barge from one NY/NJ container port to another, a local example of short sea shipping.
