Everyone has a white whale, something to obsess about.  On the canal, that might be a bridge, famous enough for its low bridges since 1825 that songs have been spawned.  One person’s white whale might be the abandoned rail bridge  known as E-93 . . about 16 feet.   We made it although the radio antenna sprang twice.  I wonder why it’s not removed and recycled.

Harry McNeal (1965) escorts Clyde, whose vintage I don’t know.  Here’s a very similar scene (foto 4)  from almost four years ago.

As I went into work this morning, there was no more than 10 minutes of spectacular dawn light, before the clouds dulled it.

Eileen McAllister and McAllister Responder pass Bel Taylor.

The red tanker Northern Bell (I thought only “southern bells” existed) get passed by a white mystery tug, the indomitable Clyde, and Moran’s Cape Cod.  Anyone know the white tug just ahead of the “truckable” Clyde?

More sixth boro tugs, randomly aggregated, soon.  I need to catch up.

Unrelated:  Just as fellow-bloggers and I keep an “eye,” a curious and fascinated eye, on the sixth boro and other places, Richard Clark–fellow former resident of New Hampshire–keeps his eye on a bay in Nova Scotia that produces something that just might be present in my residence and your s. . . sheet rock or wallboard transported by the likes of A. V. Kastner. See his blog here.

Helen Parker gallivanted around the KVK a few weeks back and allows some closer looks of profile,

push knees and gear.

I wonder about power.

Over in Erie Basin, here’s Bridge Builder 24, with a quite different attitude than Helen.

Finally, bowsprite caught Clyde headed east in KVK last week.

I must admit that the first time I heard reference to Clyde on the radio, I prepared myself to see something massively Scottish.  In her class, she’s no doubt mighty if not so massive.

On sunny days, crew spend some time between

jobs out on deck, prepping or

conferring or

repairing and more prepping or

maybe singing or

thinking and reflecting or

plotting tactics and strategy but

whatever the goal, it’s just better out on deck this time of year.
