I think of ROROs like Dignity Ace as being fairly large, but this juxtaposition made me re-evaluate.

So let’s let the tape tell its tale:  three vessels here are (l to r) Anthem of the Seas, YM Utmost, and Dignity Ace with respect to their length and breadth; and I realize that the photo does nothing to show loa.  It comes out as 1141′ x 162′  v.  1099′ x 140′ v.  656′ x 106.’

The two Vane tugs are 90′ x 32,’  although I know it’s Fort McHenry alongside Anthem and cannot identify the tug alongside Dignity.

I’m guessing the fishing boat anchored here is about 20′ and

Franklin Reinauer is 81′ x 27.9 . . . .

And since we’re doing numbers . . . from the “globe” atop the “sky arm” to the water . . . that’s 300.’

That puts some perspective on scale of some sixth boro traffic.

Lucy Reinauer, according to Birk’s site–has an interesting history, acquired by one of her owners from lottery winnings.

She came off the ways in 1973, from Jakobson, source of many older boats in the sixth boro.

Franklin is a few years older, built in Louisiana, and formerly called Ocean Tower and Matthew Tibbett‘s, both names now used on other boats.

Meredith C. Reinauer is a 7200 hp behemoth, here pushing

RTC 150.

Another day I went out and lots of Reinauer boats were around, like Gracie M., which I’d not seen up close.  Launched in the second half of 2016, she’s the fourth of their Twins series and the newest vessel in  the fleet.   Here’s the first Twins post I did and here’s another where she appears.

rn1

Curtis has slightly less hp than Gracie M and follows the B. Franklin line.  

rn2

Christian came by;  at 7200 hp  and dimensions of 118′ x 40′, she’s a big boat.

rn3

Here’s Christian in profile.

rn4

Zachery is one of the oldest in the fleet, built at Matton up near the Canal, and formerly a Mobil tug.

rn5

Now that we have a few different classes already in this post, you can see that Dean, like Gracie M, follows the Twins class.

rn6

B. Franklin, mentioned earlier, spawned Curtis, so to speak.

rn7

And here’s another slightly different angle on Gracie M.

The photo below I took in Auguast 2006.  Subtle differences are visible in the background, like the color of the cranes over in Erie Basin.  The slightly different shade of bronze and red may be due to the fact that I used a different camera.

Please read the El Faro Relief event notice at the end of this post.  TODAY is the deadline to sign up.

It’s rained most of this week and last . . . and the forecast is the same for next week, but that just means sheltering (and wiping) the lens of the camera, as needed.    I wonder if John Huibers knows something we need to pay attention to . . .  but that’s another story.

For now, I noticed a lot of Reinauer boats the other day, like  . . . the 1971 Matton-built Zachery Reinauer,

rn

interrupted by the 1960 Blount-built Eric R. Thornton with the best logo in the sixth boro,

rn1a

the 1984 Rayco Ship and Main Ironworks Franklin Reinauer,

rn2

the 1983 Cenac Shipyard-built Stephen B,

rn3

the 1967 Main Iron Works Jill Reinauer,

rn4

the 1966 Allied Shipyard Brian Nicholas,

rn5

1973 Jakobson Lucy Reinauer,

rn6

the 2010 G and S Marine Incorporated Crystal Cutler,

rn7

the 2011 Senesco Reinauer Twins.

rn9

and the 1978 Eastern Dawn, though I know not the builder.  And it appears to the the 1947 Harbor II alongside, though I noticed that almost too late.

rn10

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who’s been evading raindrops.

Anyone have more info on the previous Lucy Reinauer, the 1943 Odenbach Shipbuilding M/T?  Birk has this photo, but I’d love to see some more and to know what became of her.

And here’s a note from the organizers of the El Faro fundraiser event:  “On Sunday,  May 15th from 12-2 at Club Macanudo we will be holding a fundraiser for the families affected by the loss of the El Faro. All proceeds will go to the Seamen’s Church Institute El Faro Relief Fund. Pricing is $75.00 per person with Beer and Wine being served. Email me at Goodwindmaritime@hotmail.com. Please see the attached flier (the link in the first sentence above).

This might be the “newest-named” boat in the harbor, although you’ve seen Genesis Victory here before as Huron Service both with blue trim and orange.

Laura K Moran first appeared on this blog back in 2008 here, as the sixth boro’s newbie.

I’m not sure the story here, but Laura K holds station off the stern of MSC Sariska, who still has the hook down.

Unrelated:  The post about the documentary Graves of Arthur Kill seems to be getting a lot of attention the past few days.  Gary Kane and I can always figure out a time when one or both of us could do a screening for a group you put together.

 

First time photo of this tugboat underway . . . Stephen B pushing James Joseph.  AND first time photo on this blog by Glen Dauphin, whose work I have admired on FB.

If I’m not mistaken, this is the same tug–previous name–and sans upper wheelhouse.  I took the photo on New Years Day.

Thanks much to Glen for the first photo above.  All others by Will Van Dorp.

 

Here was 30 minutes from another vantage point.  Yesterday I left for work early and had a half hour or so to kill from Fort Wadsworth.  Seeing Ital Laguna and CMA CGM Matisse leaving together convinced me to stop there.    Meanwhile a larger and

smaller fishing boat arrive.  I recognize this boat, although I don’t know its name.  See it the last foot here.

I’ve held off moving from 99 to 100 because 100 suggested I do something special, but ultimately, I decided that random means random, so here it is.  Guess the location if not the tug?  It IS sixth boro. Answer at the end of the post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Almost 30-year-old Franklin Reinauer  entered the Narrows light as Sun Right departed the other day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Less than an hour earlier, Emerald Coast (1973) overtook the same Sun Right at the turn around Bergen Point.   I’ve seen Sun Round recently (although I didn’t take a foto) here but not Sun Road.  Are there more in this Manila-registered series?

Note the small tug assisting with Energy 11105 barge  . . .
