David Hindin alerted me when this voyage started on November 8 . . . departing San Francisco, sixth boro bound.  I’m very happy to share some folks fotos of Tradewinds Miss Lis‘ arrival at the Narrows this morning.   Many thanks to Peter Michael Patrick Codd, who sent the first two.

This bargeload is support equipment for the herculean  (oops . . . that’s just a storm?) Left Coast Lifter now heading south from San Francisco to the Panama Canal to work on the Tappan Zee bridge project.    Here’s a link to Tappan Zee Constructors.

Notice a few cranes near the TZ Bridge,  as seen from MetroNorth train.  Click here for the project website including cameras.

Here’s a link to info mostly on the existing TZ Bridge.  Here’s a link to the old borough of Tappan.

And here’s the news in this post . . . December 22 Left Coast Lifter (LCL) finally departed San Francisco Bay bound for the Hudson River.  Here‘s video of the towed  LCL departing SFB.

Will it be renamed TZ Lifter?  .  Towing it were Lauren and Iver Foss.    And before it reaches the Panama Canal, no doubt Miss Lis (scroll thru) will arrive in the sixth boro with its TZ barge.

Click here for an article in the Journal News about the crane.   And from May 2013 San Jose Mercury News, more info . . . including a line that says New yorkers are free to rename the crane/barge.

Many thanks to my friend David Hindin for coordinating the SF views.   Join me in wishing David a prosperous 2014.
