Here was a previous series called “landmarks.”
Houma at the 5.
Brooklyn passing Robbins Light, with the tallest Queens building in the background and the newest hill on Governors Island–snow-covered–in between.
James Turecamo passing the 3.
Dace Reinauer . . . the 30.
The current Dean Reinauer . . . south of Robbins. Click here and scroll for the previous Dean.
Bering Sea with DBL 29, sans watermarks.
Ditto Maryland. Here are some photos of Maryland 2008 and earlier.
Also . . . with landmarks, Mediterranean Sea . . . compare her here in a photo taken almost exactly three years ago.
Evelyn Cutler at the KV buoy pushing Edwin A. Poling.
And Pelham with my favorite bridge. Does anyone know what the rectangular structure off Pelham‘s stern is?
As the last photo for today, without watermarks or landmarks, where is Peter G. Turecamo? For some of you this will be easy. I didn’t initially know. Answer soon.
The photo of Peter G. Turecamo comes from Dirk van der Doe. All others by Will Van Dorp.
The link here may show the first glimpse I had of Balder. Let me share my getting better acquainted, but first . . . the foto below I took 13 months ago. Note the different colors of salt, reflecting
different provenances, as explained in Ian Frazier’s New Yorker article below. Buy a copy to get the rest of the story.
Without this vessel, all of us who drive the roads or walks the sidewalks and streets within the metropolis surrounding the sixth boro would be at greater risk of slipping and crashing. Framed that way, Balder could not be better named. Here’s what Kimberly Turecamo looks like from Balder‘s bridge.
On the far side of the channel, that’s Dace.
Here’s what has come forth from Balder‘s belly, a bit of the Atacama Desert on the KVK. Huge tractors load the trucks that come to a highway department near you today.
This 246′ arm, reaching nearly to Richmond Terrace, offloads at the relatively slow rate of 8oo tons per hour.
And here’s the hold just emptied, one hold of five. Notice the ladders and the tracks at the base of the hold.
Click here to see the unloading machinery in action.
Here’s what gets even the last pound making up the nearly 50,000-ton payload onto the salt dock.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp. Thanks to Brian DeForest of Atlantic Salt and the Balder crew for the tour.
As I post this, Hurricane Isaac approaches New Orleans, and the work of every mariner on the river is to ride out the storm. Even if it appears that almost nothing is moving on the river, movement is there and intense. Click here (now) for live views on the street and on the river in the Crescent City. To see what Isaac looked like over in Florida from Jed’s perspective, click here.
In the sixth boro, a race is a few days away, but vessels like Susan Miller--pushing the barge with the “rolled on and about to be rolled off” trailer–are at work.
Ditto an unidentified DonJon tug, Pati E. Moran, inbound
CMM CMA CGM Eiffel, and schooner Pride of Baltimore II go about their business.
Having “rolled-off” said trailer truck, Susan distances herself from Mary Whalen (just the bow at the starboard stern of the cruise ship) and Queen Mary 2.
Viking moves a barge through the KVK,
as does Arabian Sea and
Gramma Lee T Moran, and
the list could go on. Here, Doris Moran and Dace Reinauer . . . that’s tug work too. This last foto below comes compliments of Marian & William Hyman. Thanks.
All other fotos taken by will Van Dorp, who will be at the race Sunday. Thanks for reading.
