With apologies all around . ..  I am tardy in posting some of the photos I enjoy getting from you all readers. Tardiness . . . my only argument is that I am very busy with projects that will come out at some point.

Like this one that Ted M sent in response to my Turmoil post some weeks ago.  Jason Reinauer is towing Turmoil–an older iteration– astern.  I believe I saw Acadian Freedom in Chelsea last year, but don’t have a photo to prove it.  Here’s what I did put up from that reconnoitre.

And thanks to Jed, here’s Pearl Coast, taken recently, and

I once had photos of the green boat below and below, but I think I deleted them out of frustration of NOT being able to determine its history.  It stood here in the Brooklyn Navy Yard for a while, but scuttlebutt is that it has been scrapped. These next four photos come thanks to Paul Strubeck, busy with projects of his own.

Can anyone fill in any of the blanks as related to this green boat?

Paul also made a trip around part of Lake Michigan recently and took these photos in Green Bay–GL Texas and North Dakota

and below the bow of Stewart J. Cort, my guess is Minnesota and Oklahoma.  The GL tugs are really amazing, with combined thousands of years of work.  As to Cort, she’s back at work, bow that the Great Lakes has reawakened.

 

The Maraki crew is underway again also, in the Bahamas, but before leaving panther land, which generated these and these unusual photos, they got these photos of Rikki S and

Jane.

 

Thanks again to Ted, Jed, Paul, and the Maraki crew for these photos.  how does the French saying . . . (mien vast hard due jambs.   eh?)   Wow, that’s what autocorrect did with my foreign language.  I’ll try again:  Mieux vaut tard que jamais.

Summertime and the living is easy . . . and Sassafras is bringing fuel to MSC Marianna.

or I can call this Port of Albany 2, or better still Ports of Albany and Rensselaer.  Albany’s fireboat Marine 1 has been on this blog here.  Anyone know where it was built?

The port has not one but . . .

but two large cranes.

And bulk cargo is transferred through the port in both directions, whether it be solid or

dusty.

Over on the Rensselaer side, scrap seems to be a huge mover.

North of Port Albany is USS Slater, about which lots of posts can be found here.  But it’s never occurred to me until now that the colors used by Slater camouflage and NYS Marine Highway are a very similar gray and blue!

Kathleen Turecamo (1968) has been in this port–135 miles inland–for as long as I’ve been paying attention, which is only a little over a decade.

This September, NYS Canal Corp’s Tender #3, which probably dates from the 1930s, traveled south to the ports of Albany and Rensselaer.

The port is also a vital petroleum center, both inbound and out.

With the container train traffic along the the Hudson and the Erie Canal, I’m only less surprised than otherwise that Albany-Rensselaer currently is not a container port.

Here’s general info about the Port of Albany, although a lot of info there seems a bit out of date.  For a blog that visits visits the ports of Albany and Rensselaer more regularly, check here.   Here’s the port of Albany website.

And last but not least, check Mark Woody Woods’ broad sampling of ships heading to and from Albany-Rensselaer.

 

Here were 1 and 2, going back quite a few years.  Back then, I used to describe photos beneath them, instead of my current practice . . .  above.

So, below . ..  it’s a light Stephen-Scott, which way be the oldest vessel (1967) in the Reinauer Transportation Company fleet today.

Morgan Renauer (1981), here pushing RTC 101, was originally built for Poling Transportation.

Jason Reinauer (1968), up in Albany since last winter’s ice, dates from 1968.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Laurie Ann Reinauer (2009), dating from the first generation of facet tug construction, moves RTC 85.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

B. Franklin Reinauer (2012) is the first of the second generation of facet tugs.  Click here for a Professional Mariner article on what a “facet tug” is.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Reinauer Twins (2011)–referenced in that PM article above–if compared with the photo above, shows design differences between the two facet tug generations.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Dean Reinauer (2013) is similar to Reinauer Twins and

Haggerty Girls (also 2013) resembles B. Franklin Reinauer.

Kristy Ann Reinauer (1962) either has been of will be scrapped.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who accepts blame for any errors in information and who would love to see a launch at the Senesco yard, where many of these have had their first splash.
