A pair of deckhands ride the huge pair of knees on Discovery Coast.
… moved by a pair of Dann Marine newcomers, Chesapeake Coast and Discovery Coast with Seto Express on the far side.
A lucky pair of Finns no doubt see the yellow Stolt tanker in the distance as an angel. I took the foto of Stolt Invention four days ago as it entered the sixth boro in the afternoon fog. From Rick Old Salt’s blog today I learn that on May 10 . . . less than two weeks ago, Stolt Invention saved the lucky pair in mid-Atlantic after their sailboat began taking on water.

Interesting but completely unrelated: coal dredging on the Susquehanna? Check this out of Bone In Its Teeth blog.
Also unrelated inquiry: Does anyone remember/have fotos of the heavylift ship in NYC harbor 1997 taking away the floating jail Resolution? I’d love to see fotos.
Cormorant and I sometimes chat down by the water. Like we did this morning down where Arthur Kill meets Newark Bay. We differ on some things, but usually it’s . . . laissez faire, live and let live.
And then this came by. It’s Discovery Coast, the brand spanking new tugboat I’ve seen twice before. The first I was driving and traffic precluded pulling off for a foto and the second time was too dark. This time I could have gotten it in the still golden light of 9:30 a.m. But I averted my eyes. . . it was too much to bear. I watched from the corners of my eyes until it passed . . .
Its silhouette suggests . . . pagoda. Just count the decks . . . if they be called that . . . six of them. Discovery Coast just came out of the Main Iron works in Houma, LA. Here’s the proud new owner answering questions about the vessel’s features. From the interview, I can appreciate the vessel meeting all the latest guidelines. And I’d love a tour of the living quarters. But
if this is the look of the future, then what associations I have with that is . . . so at one time was the Edsel! And cormorant, well he took one look and
The foto below and the one of Dublin Sea come from Birk. Greenland Sea is off Barents Sea port side.
From the same vantage point, it’s Yankee, Greenland, and a third tug I should but can’t identify.
Here’s another shot from Birk, Dublin Sea over at the south end of Arthur Kill. Dublin Sea was launched in Wisconsin in 2009.
First appearance of this vessel on tugster . . . taken a week ago passing Howland Hook . . . it’s Ireland (ex-Yorktown) built
in 1940!! Some great Coastline Marine Towing jobs fotos can be found here.
Not exactly related: Some big doings on April 10 in Erie, PA as Ken Boothe Sr. and Lakes Contender get christened. Have you been invited and want to get a few fotos for tugster? Please get in touch.

June 19 . . . from the boardwalk after the parade, and (maybe celebrating solstice inland) nary a mermaid or seamaster in sight. An unidentified sloop plots a course between two outbound c-vessels. See frogma’s solstice on the boardwalk pix here.
June 18 . . . a McAllister boat heads past the World Financial Center after escorting in a cruise ship. Between the mirrored walls and sheathed in blue . . . that’s the state of construction on One World Trade. Does the name sound a bit like a commercial version of the Bob Marley song?
June 17 . . . crewman watches as Atlantic Coast pushes a loaded cement barge up the East River.
Earlier that day, the unit anchored in the Hudson; barge is Cement Transporter 5300 . . . clear enough.
Crewman uses telephone on the afterdeck of Adriatic Sea. That’s Jersey City in the background. A year ago, Adriatic appeared here.
Left to right: barge New Hampshire, Scott Turecamo, Mark Miller, and Americas Spirit. Fort Wadsworth lies in the background.
Ocean King looks to land on Pier 16 for a crew change.
I’ve never seen Ocean King (ex-David McAllister, Resolute, launched 1950) in the sixth boro before last week.

Happy Solstice. If you want more mermaids . . . let me know.
