I airbrushed away the name, but the rest of the gray is undercoating, i.e., original color. This has to be one of five identical (I’m told) boats. Guess, if you wish, before you scroll.
My guess is that she’s having some repairs, upgrades, periodic inspections . . .
Coho is the second of five FIN class boats built for Penn Maritime, one root of which was Morania. Click here for a candler that went as Morania No. 8.

Earlier . . . here’s Venice lightered by Coho.
And here’s a few superbly named vessels recently transiting sixth boro and caught by l’amica dalla torre: Magic Striker!
Forres Park, and
Great Swan. Click on this link for a few fotos of Great Swan in big seas . . . . . I’d call it gallant auk!
Thanks to amica for her dusk/dawn pics. Currently King Barley is in town over at Port Newark. I’d love it if someone got of foto of her transiting out. I wonder if that vessel in Port Newark has any connection with this small vessel from the Czech Republic . . .
I’ve held off moving from 99 to 100 because 100 suggested I do something special, but ultimately, I decided that random means random, so here it is. Guess the location if not the tug? It IS sixth boro. Answer at the end of the post.
Almost 30-year-old Franklin Reinauer entered the Narrows light as Sun Right departed the other day.
Less than an hour earlier, Emerald Coast (1973) overtook the same Sun Right at the turn around Bergen Point. I’ve seen Sun Round recently (although I didn’t take a foto) here but not Sun Road. Are there more in this Manila-registered series?
Note the small tug assisting with Energy 11105 barge . . .
Susan Miller (1981) meets Akinada Bridge –named for a Hiroshima bridge–at the Narrows recently.
Coho lighters G. Agamemnon. Has repainting started on any of the ex-Penn boats?
Comet (1977) heads under the Bayonne Bridge, while (?) Brian Nicholas following.
Atlantic Salvor (1976) followed Atlantic Coast (2007) into the sixth boro the other day.
Resolute (1975) escorted in Americas Spirit.

Unrelated: Does anyone know if and when Athena was scrapped?
The two tugs in question really have nothing to do with each other, although almost all these fotos have been taken in the past month. Bluefin, launched summer 2009, waits on the hook with Penn No. 80. Although the colors haven’t caught up, the unit–one of 16 Penn Maritime tugs and 18 heated barges– is now owned by Kirby, in exchange for almost $300 million.
This foto and the others of this unit you can enjoy thanks to bowsprite. The red tug–Reliant–is about 20 years older than Bluefin.
Each designed for its own purpose, Bluefin is 111 feet, whereas
Reliant . . . 30′.
Coho, launched November 2008, on paper is an identical twin of the 4000 hp Bluefin. I took this foto in October 2009.
Here’s a foto I took of Reliant over on the west side of Bergen Point a few years back.
Thanks to bowsprite for contributing the fotos of Reliant over at WorldFi ferry terminal. All others by Will Van Dorp.
