Divemasters MV Atlantic Surveyor came into Tony A’s lens the other day. 

Click here for some of the diverse projects this boat has been involved with. 

Kapitein Rob caught a few tugboats in the foggy west end of Long Island Sound last week:  Mister T and

Navigator.

Tony A caught this view of Pacific Reliance and this one of

Helen.

Phil little sent this along, a “dramatic shot of the Douglas J in front of the ‘Sail on the Hudson.'”

And finally, how about a formerly saltwater boat now on the inland seas, Caroline McKee, sent along by Great Lakes Mariner. 

Thanks to Tony, Rob, Phil, and GLM for sending along these photos.  Below is a photo I believe I’ve never posted . . . I took it from the Mississippi River in November 2016; Coastal 303 was later to become Southern Dawn and then Caroline McKee, depicted above.  Does anyone know the story of the snapped mast?

Here‘s a freshwater-to-saltwater Coastal 202.

Quick, name that boat.

It’s appeared on this blog before. 

She appeared here before as Charles Burton, but now . . .  meet Helen!

Cape Hatteras (1967) and Eugenie Moran (1966) have recently appeared over by Prall’s Island, regular spot for tugboats being prepared for reefing.   I caught Eugenie in Portsmouth NH over a decade ago here

Now over to the coast 3000 miles away, it’s C-tractor 22.  Thanks to JED, I rode out to sea with a previous generation C-tractor here over a decade ago. 

Many thanks to Tony A for all but the last photo, which was sent along by George Schneider.  Thanks to you both. 

And I’ll keep the lights on in tugster tower to keep juicing up the robots.
