Guess the locations here and . . .
here? Answers follow.
This one should be obvious. What’s the Philly-bound tug?
It’s Lucky D.
Here’s Chesapeake Coast, probably North River and then Hudson River bound.
B. Franklin Reinauer is Sound-bound.
And some light tugs . . . Elizabeth,
. . . Margaret Moran and Pegasus.
The top two were . . . locations were Chao Phraya River in Bangkok and the Staten Island side of the Narrows, with tug Gulf Dawn outbound. Click here for some Thai tugs from almost seven years ago. Thanks much to Ashley Hutto for the first photo.
Many thanks to Bjoern Kils of nymediaboat.com for use of this foto. Check out Bjoern’s website here.
And many thanks to Phil Little for the rest of these shots. I’m certain Phil won’t object to sharing the text that accompanied these fotos, as it too captures the moment:
As of this writing, I believe the two Foss tugs are refueling, resupplying, and possibly re-crewing . . . in preparation to return to sea for the next job.
Bjoern and Phil . . . thanks much.
As I post this, Hurricane Isaac approaches New Orleans, and the work of every mariner on the river is to ride out the storm. Even if it appears that almost nothing is moving on the river, movement is there and intense. Click here (now) for live views on the street and on the river in the Crescent City. To see what Isaac looked like over in Florida from Jed’s perspective, click here.
In the sixth boro, a race is a few days away, but vessels like Susan Miller--pushing the barge with the “rolled on and about to be rolled off” trailer–are at work.
Ditto an unidentified DonJon tug, Pati E. Moran, inbound
CMM CMA CGM Eiffel, and schooner Pride of Baltimore II go about their business.
Having “rolled-off” said trailer truck, Susan distances herself from Mary Whalen (just the bow at the starboard stern of the cruise ship) and Queen Mary 2.
Viking moves a barge through the KVK,
as does Arabian Sea and
Gramma Lee T Moran, and
the list could go on. Here, Doris Moran and Dace Reinauer . . . that’s tug work too. This last foto below comes compliments of Marian & William Hyman. Thanks.
All other fotos taken by will Van Dorp, who will be at the race Sunday. Thanks for reading.
