Adeline Marie was at anchor off the Coney Island Light.

Douglas J and a dump scow were shuttling to and from HARS.

 

Mary Emma was arriving from sea.

 

Joyce Brown passed a big unstuck green ship,

 

Stuff is always happening, and all photos, WVD.

I was alarmed when the steam and flare caught my eye, but when I saw that silhouette to the left, I knew it might be a good morning to take some photos.

I was [finally] going to see Douglas J close up, Douglas J, ex-Mediterranean Sea for two companies and Donald C before that.

She looks impressive in that new Donjon blue paint.   Twice before I’d just missed seeing her, but “thems the breaks” when a person has limited time to come out and photograph while sitting on the dock of  . . .  somewhere.

As I said, the 110′ x 38′ 4800 hp Douglas J looks good in this livery.

Long may she work.

All photos yesterday, WVD, who has no explanation for all the flaring in Linden yesterday.   

ACV Enviro provides boom service at IMTT;  this means they use a small boat to deploy and retrieve oil containment precautionary booms around vessels  transferring petroleum products there.  Here and here are examples appearing here previously. I don’t know how long booming has been required– years, I suppose;  it’s not new.

Miss Beth, however, is a new boat.  At least, this is my first time to see her.  My question is . . . what was her previous life?  She looks military.

 

The photo quality below is not the best, but I hope you find it as interesting as I do:  Left to right, most prominently that’s Martin Explorer and Douglas J., whose livery says Donjon and whose lines are unmistakably those of the former Mediterranean Sea.  Before that, she was Donald CInterestingly, I believe I see the stack of Lilac there too, just forward and above the stack of Douglas J.

Also, this is not a great photo of Annie Moore, a relatively new hull in the boro, given that this Bristol Harbor Group-designed (Or was it designed by TAI Engineers??) workboat was delivered at most a half year ago to work the Statue of Liberty for the National Park Service.   This is my first sighting for this boat. Her namesake is a 17-year-old Irish immigrant, the first person to pass through Ellis Island in early 1892 from steamer Nevada. Click here for more of the Annie Moore immigrant story.

Many thanks to Tony A for catching the Douglas J photo;  all others, WVD.
