Full disclosure here, I took this photo almost a month ago.  Also, I’ve sometimes referred to this 2016 tugboat in posts without including the middle initial, and as it turns out a boat sans the middle initial did exist, launched in 1951 and scrapped in the 1990s.  Anyhow, 

this 2016 boat was purchased by JMB Capital, who is said to have kept the name.  Have they also kept the same livery?  I believe she is still at Caddells.  Note in the photo below the worker to the lower left and the removed propeller lying flat on the floating dry dock.

All photos and any errors, WVD. 

Not many Bouchard boats are moving these days;  the 2016 Frederick, 125′ x 38 and 6140 hp, is an exception.

I took this just after sunrise for the backlit effect.

The 1961 Caitlin Ann stays busy;  her 2400 hp moves the 79′ x 24′ hull and whatever the load is.

Note equipment of at least three towing companies here.

Cape Henry, 2018, is one of the newer boats in the boro.  Her 109 x 36′ hull is powered with 5000 hp.

 

Matthew Tibbetts was launched the year I finished high school, 1969.  She’s 92′ x 27′ and powered by 2000 hp.

 

Fells Point, 2014, 90′ x 32′, and one of Vane’s many 3000 hp.

 

All photos, WVD.
