A few days after they departed NYC, Nelson Brace caught this photo of the two traversing the Cape Cod Canal.
On December 19, Michel Gosselin caught these photos of the two unbound from Lock 2 of the Welland Canal, many cold blustery, and icy days later.
Many thanks to Nelson and Michel for use of these photos. Hats off to the crew . . . better yet, given that ice, keep your hats on.
Below is the screenshot of the tow arriving in Muskegon late Christmas Eve.
It would be nice to see some of the photos crew might have taken as they crossed the stormy Gulf of Saint Lawrence and fought their way across Lake Ontario with strong winds out of the NW. And I’m looking forward to seeing them in Port City Tug colors.
So Katie G and Colleen McAllister danced their way east to get north and way west past the dancing (or leaning) towers of the East River this morning.
Notice you can still see the original Libby Black name in the raised metal of Katie G McAllister, soon to be named something else?
Here’s a previous post I did featuring Katie G. remaking a tow at the Battery.
I’m guessing this voyage will take about three weeks?
Godspeed, and beat the ice!

Here was the first post in this series.
Jed took these in the Chesapeake a few years back. I believe that’s TSH dredge Liberty Island on the far side of freight barge Columbia Elizabeth.
Prime mover here is Katie G. McAllister, which appeared here almost two years ago.
Donal G. McAllister is another one of the converted USN YTBs that McAllister operates.
Donal G. last appeared here on tugster. In the distance, I’m guessing that’s Kaleen.
Jed . . . many thanks.
Bergen Point, a 1958 Blount product, coming through the Narrows last weekend. Click here for many interesting vessels from Blount that have appeared on this blog.
And a first timer on this blog . . . John Parrish.
Penn No. 4 all painted white . . . click here and scroll through to see her in PennMaritime gray.
Bluefin . . still in PennMaritime gray . . . or is that primer?
Maryland . . . with reflections.
If my search window serves me right, then this is the first appearance of Katie G. McAllister on this blog.
This is definitely the first appearance of Pelican State here. The photo of this Great Lakes Dredge & Dock boat is here thanks to Mike and Michele Mcmorrow.
And thanks to Mage, here’s Esti and
And finally . . . it’s the mystery tug Elbe when it was Maryland Pilot boat Maryland. At its stern is its predecessor, Baltimore. I haven’t found out much about Baltimore. Any help? About Maryland, Capt. Brian Hope–who shared this photo, said this, “In 1985 and MARYLAND was donated to Greenpeace. She was a great boat, but too expensive to operate. She had a crew of 18, plus a chief steward. The crew worked two weeks on and two weeks off, so that, counting the steward, we had a total of 37 crew. When we went ashore that was reduced to about 21 and our fuel, repair and food costs dropped dramatically as well. I am very glad to see that she has been preserved (in Maassluis). She’s a great boat!” Thanks to a generous reader, here’s an article about her sea trials.
When next I post, I hope to share photos Elbe in her restored glory.
Sorry to miss NYC’s fleet week again.
