I am way out of the boro again and hoping to leave the bayous in the desired fashion.  So yes, the robots are back on the button, sticks, and levers.  The robots seem to love posts like this, random collections of mostly tugboat traffic,

like Ava escorting MSC Christiana out of the port, while

Timothy follows.  MSC Christiana is currently following the West African coastline, east to west.

Durham must have been working all night and was entering the Kills from the Upper Bay.

Vane’s Brooklyn was eastbound and met

Mister T.

Andrea went to rejoin her barge, and

Jordan looks resplendent in her new livery.

We started with Ava, so she makes the last image as well,

standing by as Mustafa Dayi waits, anchored in a location where container ships rarely do.

All photos, WVD, with posting by the tugster tower robotic team!

 

I’ve compartmentalized my photos from the Pioneer sail the other night, in part because in a short two-hour sail there was so much to see.  For starters, Stephanie Dann had earlier just rushed eastward and came back with Cornucopia Destiny, a dance partner on her starboard side.  I can speculate about this, but I don’t know the details.

As we headed into the Buttermilk, we met Susan Rose AND

Jordan Rose, ex- Evening Breeze and Evening Star, respectively.

This sweet downeaster passed.

I suspect Jordan came along to assist 

Susan into the notch.

Meanwhile, a ways down the piers, Stasinos Jimmy and currently still Evening Tide were rafted up for the moment.

Whatever brought Jordan to the Red Hook piers, by the time we had sailed passed the gantries, she was overtaking us.

On the return, as night began to fall, we met Thomas D. Witte and

then her fleetmate Douglas J.

At this point, my photos were pixelating, but I still managed to get Eastern Dawn, heading back to the “barn” at dusk.

All photos, WVD, who has handed the keys to the tower over to the robots again for a while.

 

Random and quick for now .  . . the 2015 Janet D makes her way across the Bay.

 

The 1974 Marjorie B. McAllister  moves its car float float from NJ to NY.

 

The 1996 Martin Explorer and her barge has been in town at least once before here a little over a half year ago.

 

 

And finally, the 2012 Jordan Rose came into the sixth boro for the first time as Evening Star a decade ago. 

Here‘s a post from five years ago when Evening Star was still painted in red and yellow.

All photos this week, WVD.

Dace lighters STI Excel.

 

Neptune comes into town again.

Buchanan 12 makes a rare appearance light, but everyone needs to refuel periodically.

Janet D follows Seeley into the Kills.

How a bout a four’fer . . .   counter:  Marjorie, Kristin Poling, Nicholas, and Jordan Rose.

Sea Lion heads eastbound.

B. Franklin travels west, and

Discovery Coast, east. .  .  both light.

Nathan G moves a deep scow into the Kills with Cape Wrath lurking in the background. 

Traffic never stops, and it’ll outlast me, the photographer, WVD.

 

Bet you can guess where that line leads from the bow of Kirby Moran?

Here you go.

Jordan Rose has been tied up in Bayonne for a while, but

Gregg McAllister passes her on the way to an assist.

Michael Miller is one of the venerable tugs of the sixth boro,

having worked here since the mid-1960s.

Cape Fear has been here for a few years, although I’ve not yet seen

her two sisters, Cape May and Cape Henry. 

Ava M. is one of the workhorses, certainly. 

Does anyone know when and if Capt. Brian A. will return to service here?

Kimberly Turecamo has worked the harbor consistently for going-on 30 years.

Here she heads into an orange sherbet dawn.

All photos in the past week, WVD., who has more Canal Society archival photos coming but some contemporary posts demonstrate my temporary anchor.  Also coming up, a photographer high above Hell Gate has shared a new trove of photos from a perspective I’ve missed.  Many thanks for your continued interest.

The other day I was on the OBX near Hatteras, and when I checked who was passing by at sea,  I noticed an Adeline Marie.  I had to look at the image because it was an unfamiliar name.

When I saw this boat along the KVK on Saturday, I wondered who it was, since the lion was there but no name boards.

The stern was smooth.

Later she turned and

lo and behold!  Adeline Marie must be the newest name in the sixth boro.

A few months ago here she was clearly Rubia, and below longer ago before she was Denise.

Here’s another shot of Centerline’s renamed J. George Betz. Betz mostly recently appeared on this blog in these posts, still mostly or entirely in Bouchard red.

And finally, here’s the former Evening Star, now Jordan Rose, and floating. See Evening Star‘s transformation in these posts.

All photos, WVD.

I’ve mentioned before that I’m always looking for novelty.  Here’s one, new to me at least,

the 4400 hp Chincoteague with Double Skin 802.  I’d love to get closer-up pics one of these days.

Nicole Leigh Reinauer, a 7200 hp beauty twenty years almost senior, passes Chincoteague on her way to

rejoin her barge, RTC 135.

Meanwhile Miriam Moran follows in a ship as one of the assists.

Moments earlier, the 1979 3000 hp Miriam had accompanied 1982 4610 hp  Doris Moran to meet the ship.

The 2021 4000 hp Jordan Rose, ex-Evening Star and now in Rose Cay colors, is high and dry alongside Sorenson (?) Miller on the hard at Bayonne Drydock.

The 2008 4200 hp Pocomoke passes the KV buoy, which made soothing noises as it rose and settled in the chop.

The 1999 4500 hp Patrice heads out to meet a ship.

 

And finally, 1999 3600 hp Stephen Dann looked particularly good as she headed out to her next job.

All photos, this week, WVD.

 

I suddenly have a full hopper of photos from readers like you.  Thanks.  Let’s start with a photo of these two boats from Tony A taken on October 29.

Yesterday, November 3, I got this photo from Dan Horton showing how things are trending.  My wager is that by now the red on Evening Star is gone and she matches Susan Rose and might be even be carrying Jordan Rose signage.  At first I thought this was a gray, but here it looks like a flat off-white.

Meanwhile, in Belfast, here’s a surprise from William Mitchell

She’s not been renamed but she joins the fleet of this boat.  Know it?

It’s Fournier Tractor, previously McAllister Tractor and Mabel Colle Fournier Tractor appeared in this blog here a few years back.

Since we’re in Belfast, how about this rudder?  Ever seen one like it, with it’s three-part design?

Here’s the vessel it’s from, Sequoia at French and WebbSequoia made its way up there on a deck barge two years ago, as seen here.  The photo above and below come from Allan Seymour.

Liz Alma has been in the area this past month.  I’ve just missed her a few times, but Tony A got this photo over in the Arthur Kill.  I caught her along the North Carolina coast here a few years back.

And let’s close this out with this lowly supply boat for Alcatraz Island, an LCM-8 built by Higgins in New Orleans in 1954.  George Schneider sends it along as a boat on his list of “seldom cared about vessels.”  He writes that she’s “commercially documented as # 1191433, and was given an appropriate name for her service:  Solitary.”  I’d say some name paint is in order, although maybe supply chain woes have delayed it. A striped livery might work well too, almost a dazzle in this case to call attention to itself.   George goes on about a large tour boat on this coast named Escape. He writes, “You’d think that name has an overtone of Shangri-la, but she was originally purchased for the Alcatraz tourist business until found inappropriate for that run.”  I wonder if only the boat was inappropriate or the name as well.

Many thanks to Tony, Dan, William, Allan, and George for these photos.
