Upriver at Magdalen Island, here’s a followup to Ooops 3 . . . Mary Alice (1974) brings in bucket on dredge Delaware Bay (2006) to begin process of raising the beached scow. That’s Leopard Albany-bound on left side of page. See Leopard anchored in the sixth boro in the second foto here.
These fotos come thanks to Dock Shuter.
Resolute (1975) heads for a rendezvous with Zim Qingdao. That’s High Mercury and the ferry terminal in the background.
Anyone know who takes credit for that white arch atop the terminal?
Headon view of the new Mary Gellatly (2000). Actually, I wish the green trim along lower side of house windows were left . . . even enhanced. That’s Maersk Caitlin in the background.
Tied up along the salt pile . . . it’s Vane’s Red Hook (2013) and Hunting Creek (2012) They may be the two newest tugboats in the sixth boro.
Catherine Turecamo (1972) closes in to meet UASC Jeddah.
And here . . . high and dry and needing a shave, it’s Specialist. Here (scroll through to the end) is a foto of the same vessel–house up–three plus years ago. Is she really a 1956-build?
And finally, heading into the Narrows, it’s
Sea Bear (1990).
Thanks to Dock Shuter for the Mary Alice fotos. All others by Will Van Dorp.

As Gazela sailed back to Philly between daybreak last Wednesday and late afternoon Thursday, I was fortunate to be a very “green” member of the crew, my first time sailing on a barquentine. Other vessels passed and overtook us, and I’m including those fotos here in hopes that anyone aboard these other vessels who photographed us might be willing to share those shots of Gazela. Please do.
Gazela departs through the Narrows under a drizzle; precipitation had been off and on for three days, delaying departure by 48 hours. (For pics, doubleclick enlarges.)
Tanker British Serenity overtakes us outside the Narrows. By sunset, 10 hours later, we’d motorsailed off Atlantic City, surfing swells and getting soaked with on & off drizzle.
Skies clear overnight, giving us a just-past-full moon. I stand a midnight–6 am watch from Cape May and up Delaware Bay. This is sunrise.
After breakfast, I nap for an hour until a lurch awakens me. “Must be someone’s wake,” I imagine, grab my camera, and go on deck. I believe it was Amberjack, also headed up the Bay.

If you were on any of the vessels above and have pics of Gazela, please get in touch.

Many thanks to the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild and wonderful crew for the opportunity to sail. If you are interested in volunteering, click here. Gazela expects to be back up through the sixth boro once more this fall.
