Quick. Name this unit . . . or at least the current and previous operators?
I haven’t seen many Gateway Towing tugs along my usual haunts, but here’s Connecticut.
Nanticoke, about 10-years-old now, the second of the Patapsco 4200 hp class, pushes a payload enclosed in Doubleskin 305.
Pacific Reliance, at the dock, is made up to the 650-1, whose capacity is 155,000 bbl.
So . . that unit in the top photo is Genesis Vision, formerly Superior Service
pushing GM 6508. Here was a photo of the tug as Superior Service, only four years ago.

And if you have not seen it yet, here’s an 18-minute video of the saga of the former Katie G and Colleen McAllister, which I captured the first hours of here as they headed east on the East River on their long journey to western Michigan. Here was my Part 2 of that voyage, with collaboration from colleagues.
Here from eight years ago is Katie G moving petroleum product and remaking a tow right off the Battery.
