Let’s start with one that I can’t identify, other than by its name . . . Charlie E, I believe. I took this photo in Port Colborne.
I can’t ever remember seeing a heaping load of coal like this . . .
Petite Forte was docked also along the Welland Canal with barge St. Mary’s Cement.
I’ll put up a pilot boat post soon. Meanwhile, can you identify this pilot boat?
Jaclyn is a 41′ tug built in 1967.
Joncaire, it turns out, is an important name in Niagara history.
Eagle is a 57′ tugboat built in 1943 and operating out of Cleveland. Here she heads for the outer harbor.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who is unpacking as quickly as possible, and preparing to repack soon.
Here’s the reference map; leg 9 took us into Cleveland, where Federal Maas is in port.
William C. Gaynor was anchored on the west side of the Cuyahoga.
Eagle pushed a deck barge outbound.
A small boat analyzed the river, and
Iowa went by light.
A visit to William G. Mather was compulsory, of course.
I noticed where her anchor was cast.
And finally, Iowa towed in Alberta-registered Sea Eagle II moving St. Mary’s Cement II.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who has since moved on to leg 10.
Here’s a photo taken from Pegasus in July 2012, showing the entire Harley fleet in New York that night. HMS Justice has been around since also, although I’ve not seen her in a while.
Kyle Stubbs recently sent along a set of Harley photos, which are divided into two groups here. Take it away, Kyle. All photos were taken in Seattle unless stated otherwise.
“EAGLE was built in 1979 by Modern Marine Power as DALLAS J ADAMS for Doucet & Adams on the Gulf Coast. In 2000 she was purchased by Harley and brought west.
Z-FIVE, pictured underway on LA Harbor, was built in 1999 by MARCO for Tugz International of Ft. Lauderdale, and eventually sold to Harley where she is used on the California coast along with her sisters Z-THREE and Z-FOUR.
The photo of BOB FRANCO and ROBERT FRANCO shows both soon after delivery in 2013, the former from Diversified Marine of Portland, OR and the latter from Nichols Brothers of Freeland, WA.
LISSY TOO, pictured passing Longview, WA on the Columbia, was built in 1974 by Sneed Shipbuilding of Orange, TX as MISS SAN. She later wore the names CREOLE SAN and RENE before being purchased by Harley.
LELA JOY was built in 1970 by Halter Marine Services as MODOC. She was acquired by Harley in 1972 and renamed WILLAMETTE CHAMPION before being sold and renamed JANET R. In 1993 she was reacquired by Harley and gained her current name.
GRIZZLY, pictured at the Port of Tacoma, was built in 1943 by Equitable Equipment as the US Army freighter F 18. She was later converted to a pusher tug by Smith Tug & Barge for use on the Columbia. After changing hands several times, she was purchased by Harley in 2007.
BRIAN S, built by Main Iron Works in 1963 is a long-time Northwest tug. After being operated on the Gulf coast from 63 to 74 by Gulf Mississippi Marina and then Guidry Brothers, she was brought to the west coast by Foss Maritime and renamed MARGARET FOSS. In 1989 she was purchased by Oregon-based Sause Brothers and renamed GO-GETTER. She spends most of her time now based in Port Angles.
HUNTER D was built in 1970 by Albina Engine & Machina Works of Portland, OR as MALANAE for Hawaiian Tug & Barge, and acquired by Harley in 2002.” In the background is ALYSSA ANN, which we get a better photo of soon.
Again, all photos here come compliments of Kyle Stubbs. Part b . . soon.

Here was the first “play boats.”
For others it takes teeth and arms . . . even if faux. If you live along the Erie Canal, keep a watch since PT 728 will soon be moving over to Lake Erie.
Then there are Feadships like Utopia II.
Or there’s the plaything of Roman Abramovitch, the
vessel with the luxury tender, Luna!
And very near many of these playboats, a banded bird that plays with prey. To see more eagles along the Hudson and other birds, click here.
