On a cold winter’s morning, what’s going on in the harbor?

The usual . . . .  Kathleen heads out with a scow,

shows Performance out to sea.  And in response to my cuz . .  JS . . . Ellen performs her magic on the container ship . . .

And tugster, who took these pictures, needs to warm up and get to work himself.

 

It’s no surprise that the last time I used this title happened also in the spring.  Morning sun . . . and Gramma Lee T gets paired with her own shadow.

Later, Laura K passes Gramma Lee T.  Laura K escorts in NYK Nebula whereas Gramma Lee T stands by Torm Venture, which

casts its orange haze onto wavelets, coloring in some of their planes beyond the buffleheads.

Nebula stays in port only enough time to shift some containers and then heads back to sea, and another port.   Savannah?  Click here for a global set of NYK ship fotos assembled by an aptly-named “hive mind.”

Weeks 533 –veteran of posts with locomotive and Airbus A320 liftings, heads out the easat end of KVK, powered by a a motley pair,  brace made

up of Robert IV and Weeks Kathleen.  Here are fotos of 533 righting Stellamare after its 2003 accident in Albany.  Compliments of  Tom Whittemore, here are more fotos of Weeks 533 “uncapsizing” Stellamare.

Before a skyline dominated by GS in Jersey and Empire State in Manhattan, here go Lucy (farther) and Curtis Reinauer.  (Previous names for the pair, respectively, include May McGuirl, Morania No. 7;  and Delaware. )

while in the very close, a pair of mallards floats past, the greener head of the two eying the lens.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, clearly taken this week before the late winter monsoon moved in.

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.
