The bridge still looks familiar to someone from the 1930s, although I’d love to see photos of Shooters from then, and
of course the bridge is getting unfamiliar.
Ellen McAllister and Specialist way in the distance are familiar, as
is Port Elizabeth, so
no doubt about it, this is Mariner’s Harbor . . . stern to Richmond Terrace, the mark in the foreground with Capt. Willie Landers in the middle and Maersk Denver over in Port Elizabeth.
All photos here by Will Van Dorp.

Here are previous posts in this series.
Here’s Star Falcon just before sunrise and
a few hours later. Currently it’s Houston-bound.
Currently known as Kalliopi RC,
I photographed this vessel a snowy day nearly two years ago as Hoechst Express.
Here’s Global Laguna, inbound . . . .
On recent trips, it has transported scrap to Turkey.
And finally, a larger-than-typical OOCL Luxembourg inbound the other day . . . 1053′ loa.
Eric McAllister and Ellen McAllister assist.

All the rest I’ve taken recently in the sixth boro . . . Gracious Ace (a fun name) left Yokohama on June 30.
Palmerton follows the Ambrose Channel into the Narrows.
Anyone recognize the cargo?
Glovis Crown and CMA CGM Vivaldi cross on the Ambrose Channel.
Juliette Rickmers heads for sea with Margaret Moran alongside.
Thanks to Fred for the top photo; all others by Will Van Dorp.
Recently in t-shirt weather in the sixth boro . . . it’s a classic, Thomas J. Brown.
Ellen S. Bouchard,
Resolute with a Bouchard barge,
and Evening Star, also with a Bouchard barge.
Elizabeth McAllister light,
Robert E. McAllister,
and finally Ellen McAllister shifting
Cielo di Roma . . .
Thomas J. Brown . . . enjoy another look at this classic.
All photos by Will Van Dorp. And in the post above, subtracting the three tugs in the O. Nonimus Bosch photo, you have over 25,000 horsepower, of which 1000 of those ponies are generated by Thomas J.
How many more folks in the cold first months of 2015 would have slipped on walkways or skidded off roadways had it not been for our annual salt infusion? Spar Spica is the most recent vessel emptied here.
How many old trucks and cars have a second life in the Caribbean islands because of this trade conducted by Grey Shark?
What kind of petroproducts does Pula transport?
The classic Ellen McAllister escorts her in. . .
as another tanker . . . Arionas heads for sea
guided by Elizabeth McAllister.
Deep Blue–named for this??– lingered in port a few days as
did NS Lotus, here a few weeks ago when this ice drifted beyond the Narrows. And what did the crews think of the ice drift?
I really have lost track of the number of salt ships that have delivered anti-ice properties to the land sides of the sixth boro. There was at least one between United Prestige–shown here in mid-February–and Spar Spica.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who is ecstatic to be in a warmer sixth boro this morning.
An unusual vessel working for a line with an unusual name . . . with . . . is that Gabby Miller in the background?
And here’s Laura K Moran, escorting in Durande, with an unusual port of registry on its stern.
Marseille . . . a place on my “wanna-see, gotta gallivant” list.
And another . . . by the color it’s Maersk, escorted in here by . . . Ellen McAllister, I think.
But look, there amidships . . . just above the word “LINE” . . .
. . . is that an Oshkosh?
There’s never a shortage of surprises in the sixth boro. All photos taken in the past few days by Will Van Dorp, who has learned of these forthcoming and unusually large vessels on the horizon somewhere.
On a cold winter’s morning, what’s going on in the harbor?
The usual . . . . Kathleen heads out with a scow,
Eric R. Thornton muscles scrap,
Evening Tide reconnects with an oil barge,
Diane B disconnects from John Blanche for a spell,
Joyce D. Brown heads out to a job,
Red Hook, wreath still in place, shuttles between barges,
And Ellen McAllister
shows Performance out to sea. And in response to my cuz . . JS . . . Ellen performs her magic on the container ship . . .
And tugster, who took these pictures, needs to warm up and get to work himself.
There’s fog of war, and then there’s warships in fog. Click here for another.
Note the Hoboken tower off the bow in the photo above and off the stern . . . below.
That’s Ellen McAllister at the stern and Elizabeth alongside midships.
I’m guessing there is a photographer in this vessel.
See it there off the stern?
All photo taken this morning by Will Van dorp, who has been back in the sixth boro for over a week now but is still mostly “unpacking” the canal experiences, which will be shared shortly.
