It’s been over a year since I’ve used this title . . . I worry sometimes that someone I catch in the act of working might feel intruded upon. Such is the farthest thing from my intention. I’m certainly not the first or last to state there’s dignity in labor, whether it’s performed indoors or out.

I last used this title over three years ago, and every day since then, fuel has flowed through the harbor, as blood through healthy veins. And it will keep on doing so by an impossibly wide array of vessels. Below, yesterday afternoon the 1934-launched ship Kristin Poling pushes over 21,000 barrels of oil in the direction of the 1931-opened Bayonne Bridge. Kristin‘s destination COULD lead it through the ice-choked waters up the Hudson, captured here less than a month back by Paul Strubeck. Part of what the foto below says to me is the immense care and maintenance in keeping both these harbor icons in use.
Lucy Reinauer pushes the 2008-launched RTC 83 southbound on the Arthur Kill. Lucy was launched from Jakobson’s in Oyster Bay in 1973 and since then has borne all the following names: Texaco Diesel Chief, Star Diesel Chief, Morania No 5, May McGuirl. I’d love to see a foto of her when first launched.
As an indication of changes in scale over the decades, load capacity of barge Philadelphia is 118,000 barrels, relative to Kristin Poling‘s . . .21,000 and a bit.
Fuels moved through the harbor have a range of users: Vane’s Doubleskin 301 moves in to fuel container vessel NYK Delphinus even before containers start moving off the ship.
All fotos in the past 48 hours by Will Van Dorp, who is convinced that millions of dollars will go to whomever figures out how to move food and retail goods through the sixth boro to the consumer as efficiently as all our fuels already are. All fotos were taken from Arthur Kill Park in Elizabeth, NJ.
Need sunglasses for this drama on the Hudson? “Random” means … spotted in a plethora of places, like Elizabeth, passing the Hudson waterfront at dusk with a barged Weeks crane 532 in tow. Note the Crow or Cheyenne in push gear with barge on the far left.
Paul T Moran at Gulf Marine Repair in Tampa. Not to be insensitive to customary modes of dress, but–as east river pointed out– doesn’t this vaguely like a burka or abaya from the eyes down on the tug?

Connecticut (1959?) crosses the Sound north to south.
That’s it for now. Thanks to Deb DePeyster (who previous contributed to this) for the foto of Elizabeth, and to east river for the foto of Paul T Moran. All others by Will Van Dorp.
