Call me a wimp . . .  but it’s icy out there.  And yet people work outside.  Bravo and hats on for the crews and shipyard workers out there where the spray sometimes freezes.  Some quick fotos I took yesterday.  Would you believe this is the same DBL 140 barge you see in the 5th and 6th fotos here?

Here’s DBL 140 and Lincoln Sea from across the Upper Bay.

Traffic never stops because of some cold.

One positive about cold, low humidity air . . . it’s clear.  Ocean Leader could never look this good

Ditto Ruth M. Reinauer moving RTC 102 with an assist from Jill Reinauer.

Anyone handling line on a day like this needs the right gear and

a focus on getting the work done safely.

Bravo and hats on!!

Little toot surely!  And what might she be dragging along?  Answer at end of the post.

A new sighting for me . . . Kathleen (1975).

Jill Reinauer (ex-Ranger 1967).

Amy C McAllister (ex-Jane A. Bouchard, 1975) with Ellen (1966) and MOL Innovation (1996) in the background.

Choptank (2006).  And what is that dour yellow in the background?

Evening Tide (1970).

Another shot of Ellen escorting in MOL Innovation.  MOL vessels are named for great abstract qualities like Vigor, Vision, Confidence, and –as seen here a little over a week ago–Efficiency.  I’m wondering why the single-deep stack of containers occupies the starboard sternmost corner.

Lil Toot is Tommy Miller dragging in Lady Ashley of Cliffside Park.  I’ve no clue about the make or vintage of Lady Ashley, but I suppose it’s impolite to ask a lady her age.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp within a shot hour and a half Saturday morning.

The sixth boro is a huge workplace, made up of many smaller  workplaces, each with many specialities; all

in a wide open place, without which the megalopolis could not

function.  So few

provide for the many.

So few choreograph

basic needs for

so many.

Tugs shown include from top:  Gramma Lee T Moran, Miriam Moran, Sarah Ann, and Jill Reinauer.

Can anyone identify the tug below?  Glen Cove?  Next two fotos were sent  by Richard Guthrie, taken in New Baltimore, upriver.

Closer-up by Richard shows an enormous piece of tubing headed south on the Hudson earlier this week.  Check out some of the projects on the Megrant site here.

Many thanks to Jed for the top two fotos here.  Fotos 3–7 by Will Van Dorp.

I think of the phrase “ships passing in the night.”  Random encounters also happen at dawn  (like Donald C and McAllister Brothers),

aaaprs6

December afternoons (like Maryland and Evening Mist), or

aaapr9

mid morning ( like Aegean Sea and Laura K Moran), and every hour in between.  Sometimes they prompt a spin for second glance,

aaanec3

sometimes they lead to joined forces (like Jill and Kristy Ann Reinauer) and other times

aaapr4

there’s  just a perfunctory  wave as they steam by (like Thomas D. Witte and Christian Reinauer)

aaapr5

The challenge is to know when to steam by, when to get a second and third inquiring look, and when to form alliances.  Form ye alliances while you might . . . hmmm . . . is that like “Gather ye rosebuds while ye may . . .”?  Rest of Herrick’s poem is here.

Photos, WVD.

Jed sends along the shot below:  four sloops, Vane Chesapeake pushing a barge a few miles off, and military vessel.  Guess the vessel, event, and location?  Answer below.

Sloop plus Reinauer’s Matthew Tibbets eastbound in front of Brooklyn Heights,

ketch plus Ellen McAllister near IMTT Bayonne,

sloop plus James Turecamo near Stapleton,

sloop with unidentified Reinauer tug looking toward KVK,

unidentified Buchanan tug towing scows toward Tappan Zee along the Palisades while VOC replica appears to move a Hughes barge on the hip, taken today in Yonkers.  See more on our Half Moon blog, a work in progress, here.  

So, the vessel is the DDG67 Cole near Annapolis, coexisting with sloops in the Great Schooner Race.

On the Henry Hudson blog, we’ll be posting fortnightly, aka halfmoonthly, til spring 2009.
