What does a 70+ degree temperature day in February in the sixth boro look like?  Well . . . see for yourself.  Cornell light and likely back from a TOAR training, rafts up to Mary Whalen in Atlantic Basin.

Along the Brooklyn shore, there was Genesis Glory with GM11105.

Brooklyn–ex-Labrador Sea–light was headed for the Kills.

An anchored Crystal Cutler stood by with Patricia E. Poling.  Over in the distance is Malik al Ashtar, another 13,000+ teu container ship.  See Crystal light, high and dry here.

Over near the foot of Atlantic Avenue, Linda Lee Bouchard stands by alongside B. No. 205.

And finally, along the BQE and Brooklyn Heights, C. Angelo with EMA  1152, the EMA standing for Express Marine, the outfit that used to deliver fuel to the sixth boro’s coal-fired plants.  Express Marine tugs Consort and Escort used to be regulars in the port.  I believe they are currently “laid up.”

For the last batch of tugboats for 2017, check out these workhorses of the harbor, run and maintained by devoted crews and owners . . . to whom this post is dedicated.  It’s a random sample for the sixth boro.

To all those folks working this frosty day and to all my readers and commenters . . .  happy, safe, peaceful, and prosperous 2018.  All photos by Will Van Dorp.

Navigator . . . until I looked carefully, I assumed she operated out of the Chesapeake/Elizabeth River in Virginia, because her colors are similar to tugs like Kodiak.   But I stand corrected . . . Balico Marine Services . . . I had not known that name.

And Realist, the nearer tug, I thought she was always at the dock, as here, tied in front of Hubert Bays.

Well, yesterday, Realist crossed the Upper Bay when I was there, and she needed the upper wheelhouse to see over GL66.

Below is a photo of Realist, taken not quite a year ago.  In this batch of photos here from Paul Strubeck, you’ll find a photo of Realist fleet mate Specialist.

Here’s Dolphin, which I last saw in the Mississippi here almost a year and a half ago.

Yesterday the 70 degree air temperatures made the Upper Bay quite foggy, a nice effect.

And finally . . . Genesis Liberty, you can see her here in some of her previous lives– Hornbeck and before– in this post from eight years ago!!

Eight years ago, the skyline didn’t look this way either.
