This first foto is by a secret salt . . . showing Dory (1978) and Captain Zeke (1980) tandem towing beach-lounging 125′ deck barge back onto the water.
And . . . attributed by the watermark . . . fotos from last week before Janus chilled the town, Atlantic Conveyor gets an assist from Charles D. McAllister (1967).
Shelby (1978) also worked in the January fog. Thanks, Brian.
And the rest of the fotos are mine: the seldom-seen Specialist (1956?), here close and
Two Coasts . . . Chesapeake (2011) and Emerald (1973).
Resolute (1975) about to pass Düsseldorf Express (1998),
Many thanks to the secret salt and Brian DeForest for their fotos. All others by Will Van Dorp.

These signs appeared along the NJ Turnpike today.
I had to return to the sixth boro from a little time spent in Philly. I saw Lois Ann L. Moran (2009, Washburn & Doughty) pass quite close to Penn’s Landing, but she was way up by Fishtown by the time I could grab my camera.
High Roller (1969, Jakobson) passed also, but the light hardly allowed Roller‘s brilliance to show. Scroll through for a foto of High Roller and her siblings with unique names in a post I did here over two years ago. The dome is the Camden aquarium, where some float-through-and-over-anything hippos live.
Two weeks ago, these small craft bobbed resplendent in summery sunny, but now a storm that should be called stormy or squally or even super-tempestuous dulls their colors.
For now, get to high ground; otherwise, batten ’em down. Dog’em. Double’em up.

Here’s some sixth boro area tempests of past years. As I post this (1700 hrs), Queen Mary 2, Maersk Kentucky, and Yasa Golden Dardanel are among the last large vessels leaving boro6 for the safety of sea.
