Sometimes I like to start new categories so that the numbers don’t get so high, boats no longer extant or frequent get a second look, and we realize that time is passing pretty fast.  So all the photos here I took more than seven years ago.  Some have been on the blog before, but not together and not edited exactly as they are now.

Like Norwegian Sea, she used to be a wintertime staple running up the River, easily recognizable by her upper wheelhouse.

Juliet is still around but not very busy under her new name . . . it seems.

This boat, like her namesake, is gone too soon. Pegasus is still around but no longer looks this way.

Zeus was on the Great Lakes after working in the sixth boro, but I’ve lost track of her.

Volunteer, another unmistakable profile, now long time gone from here.

Zachery  . . . still around and still working. High Peace is now registered Vietnamese and goes by Pvt Dolphin.

Just to break the pattern here, here’s a photo I took of Zachery a few days ago.

Take my word for this last photo . . . the distant unit I can’t identify although I’m guessing a Reinauer boat, but the closer vessel is outrageous.  Actually I mean Outrageous.  That’s the name.  Click here (and scroll) for a previous photo of Outrageous, which I believe used to be based in the sixth boro.

Since my very first post, I’ve revealed my interest in a) Alice and b) her bulbous bow. Alas, my hankering for more contact with Alice goes unrequited, an ennobling exercise in longsuffering. My interest in bow diversity, however, grows.

Jane A. Bouchard‘s bow, rubber cushioned, is dictated by its function.

High Peace‘s bulbous bow typifies what has been incorporated into larger ship design for nearly a century. Read this and this about bulbous rostrums,

…not to suggest for an instant that rubber and bulbous bows were intended for full frontal contact. And never to confuse a bulbous with a ramming bow.

Places to go…. Peace and respect.
