I’m most interested in the surface painted black, but that neck goes upward forever . . . or at least high enough to almost scrape the underside of the Bayonne Bridge.  Well . . .

okay, I exaggerate a quite a bit.  See Bronze 3 for the upper wheelhouse, but when JoAnne came off the ways in 1970 as DAD III, no tower stood there.  DAD expands to Doucet & Adams, Inc., Galliano, La.  Reinauer acquired the vessel around 1979-1980, when JoAnne looked as shown below.

The upper wheelhouse was added as shown, and she kept this profile until her conversion last year.  A bonus interest about the foto below is the setting:  Erie Basin as Ikea was beginning its radical surgery;  compare with the second foto here.

From the same era and thanks to Bill Lynch, here JoAnne III heads westbound off South Street Seaport.

Here’s a parting shot of Joanne III in her current state.  Why is the mid-section of her hull bulked up as it is, no walkway?  The massive size there brings to mind the sides of the ironclad Merrimack aka CSS Virginia.

Remember Saturday 3 pm, Pier 66 for a drink . . . with what waterbloggers wash up.

Bronze 2 featured Reinauer only fotos.  With new boats around, I feel compelled to update. Welcome to the sixth boro . . .  Ruth M. Reinauer, 4000 hp.

I could have composed the shot so that Ruth appeared to carry all of Manhattan on its afterdeck, but

From a distance, I saw this as Dace, but waited for its approach anyhow.  Then things started to look a bit different from Dace.

Like the hull.  Imagine my surprise . . .  it’s JoAnne Reinauer III.

If I’ve seen her before, the bow was in the notch and

would have been memorable.

I wonder how JoAnne looked when launched in 1970.

Let’s round it out with Zachery, 3000 hp.

I’m thinking Ruth might be the first of a new class.

All fotos here by Will Van Dorp, who leaves to go upriver early in the morning to take a few days off blogging.
