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.

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.
Curtis has slightly less hp than Gracie M and follows the B. Franklin line.
Christian came by; at 7200 hp and dimensions of 118′ x 40′, she’s a big boat.
Here’s Christian in profile.
Zachery is one of the oldest in the fleet, built at Matton up near the Canal, and formerly a Mobil tug.
Now that we have a few different classes already in this post, you can see that Dean, like Gracie M, follows the Twins class.
B. Franklin, mentioned earlier, spawned Curtis, so to speak.
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,
interrupted by the 1960 Blount-built Eric R. Thornton with the best logo in the sixth boro,
the 1984 Rayco Ship and Main Ironworks Franklin Reinauer,
the 1983 Cenac Shipyard-built Stephen B,
the 1967 Main Iron Works Jill Reinauer,
the 1966 Allied Shipyard Brian Nicholas,
1973 Jakobson Lucy Reinauer,
the 2010 G and S Marine Incorporated Crystal Cutler,
the 2011 Senesco Reinauer Twins.
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.

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.

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.
Brian Nicholas and Evening Mist head out on assignment.
Here’s an entire post I devoted to Brian Nicholas over four years ago.
For a frontal view of Evening Mist, click here and scroll.
Here Miriam Moran escorts Hoegh Inchon. ROROs’ cargo is quantified not in teus, but ceus, and Inchon is a 21-year-old floating parking lot with 4300-car equivalent capacity.
Maryland and Franklin Reinauer meet, with missions taking them in opposite directions.
And with Red Hook we end.
Happy springtime, like it was in the photo below, showing Huron Service about seven LONG years ago.

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.
Haggerty Girls and RTC 107, with an assist from Matthews Tibbetts . . . getting underway.
Franklin Reinauer pushing past . . .
Kimberly Poling with Edwin A. Poling, no doubt headed up to where the ice is thicker.
Eric McAllister precedes her.
And finally Pacific Dawn . . .
. . . coming in from Gravesend Bay, where . .
can anyone explain what part of the gas project–if any–they’ve been working on just off Coney Island’s western tip?
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.
First Coast moves in from somewhere beyond Norton’s Point.
Rays now rake across the top of the manifold on Freja Nordica as it enters the Narrows and
passes an outbound Franklin Reinauer.
Recognize the profile?
It’s Ellen. I’ve no horse that shakes harness bells to suggest I move along, but I know I have –if no promises to keep–then . . work to do, appointments to meet.

Barney Turecamo with barge Georgia and
Buchanan 12 light, under the same wintry sky. The last time I saw the 12 was back when tugster last took a swimming day. I’d love to see the high and dry hulls of Barney and Mary.
Franklin Reinauer and Taft Beach leaving Erie Basin and
Franklin here refueling with Ruth M.
Robert E. McAllister, passing where warehouses are being transformed into park equipment and
Passing the cranes at the former Military Ocean terminal it’s Mary Gellatly and headed the other way
Marjorie B. McAllister.
Joyce D. Brown westbound past IMTT and here a few minutes later Joyce with
Meredith C. Reinauer right behind.
Shelby slings some barges and
magnificent Maryland –as seen from a low angle–made to the dock.
A Vane unit . . . I don’t recall and can’t identify . . . a few minutes after sunrise.
All fotos taken the past month by Will Van Dorp.
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.
Almost 30-year-old Franklin Reinauer entered the Narrows light as Sun Right departed the other day.
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 . . .
Susan Miller (1981) meets Akinada Bridge –named for a Hiroshima bridge–at the Narrows recently.
Coho lighters G. Agamemnon. Has repainting started on any of the ex-Penn boats?
Comet (1977) heads under the Bayonne Bridge, while (?) Brian Nicholas following.
Atlantic Salvor (1976) followed Atlantic Coast (2007) into the sixth boro the other day.
Resolute (1975) escorted in Americas Spirit.

Unrelated: Does anyone know if and when Athena was scrapped?
I thought I’d used this title before, but I was thinking about this one, backgrounds. The idea here is similar.
From this angle, can you identify this vessel?
It’s a shipshape Pegasus!
From the same perspective, Justine McAllister and Franklin Reinauer leaving the KVK for the AK.
Ditto equally shipshape Mary Turecamo, from a perspective such that the visor practically obscures the house windows.
What’s the tale of three wakes . . . one recent and the others less so?
This is a good view of how a model bow fits snugly in the notch.
Where’s this and what’s this? Although it looks like a building being overrun by tropical flora and fauna,
this might generate a different set of associations.
This was taken from the same vantage point but with the camera pointed a bit higher yet, and it makes all the difference.
It’s OSC Vision entering the Upper Bay last weekend, giving new meaning to the term “shipshape.” And the fauna here could be called landscaping goats . . . . or “scapegoats,” for short.
Two ships . . . well, at least until you examine the farther one more closely.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who did this earlier goat homage here.
