She’s been around about half a year, but this was my first time to see her closeup.  And I was fortunate to catch her in most of a rotation . . . below pointing one o’clock,

near twelve,

eleven,

nine,

[with a digression]

back to ten,

and here I missed a headon clearly six view, but skip directly to a three and

tending toward a two.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who has no judgement but finds the design unique, as is true of the buildings of Hudson Yards in the background..

Here’s another calendar’s worth . . . starting with Josephine.  I have many more of this bot coming up soon.

Capt. Brian heads out through the Narrows to meet a tow.

Cape Lookout returns for her anchored barge.

Nathan G delivers a brace of scows.

Ava M heads out for a job.

The “new” Kristin Poling returns to her barge as well.

Ellen and Bruce A follow a job.

St Andrews heads east and

Ernest Campbell, west.

Challenger, some weeks ago, brings a Weeks crane up for a lift.

Stephen B has some additions to her paint job since last I saw her.

CMT Pike heads back across the Upper Bay.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who can’t believe it’s already mid-November 2019!!

 

 

The first in this series posted eight years ago!

Of course, tugs currently working in freshwater haven’t necessarily started there, as is true of Manitou.

Victorious had to traverse halfway around the world before quite recently beginning its life on the Great Lakes, such as it is now pushing hot asphalt seething within John J. Carrick.

Ditto G. L. Ostrander, here pushing LaFarge barge Integrity.

Josephine (ex-Wambrau) has likely had the greatest amount of saltwater time and distance before coming to the Great Lakes watershed.  Here she’s docked in the Maumee river with the Mightys . . .  Mighty Jimmy, Mighty Jake, and mighty small.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who has more Mightys and more freshwater tugs to come.

 

. . . the Detroit River, an international race.  See my post here from four years ago for this quite eclectic set of boats.

I wonder if there’s ever a chance of getting a higher horsepower class to arrive some year as well . ..  like Ken Boothe Sr., Everlast, GL Ostrander, Samuel de Champlain, Jane Ann IV . . . and their size.

 

All photos by Jan van der Doe, taken the same day as the Mermaid Parade and the last run of Pegasus.
