Seen in and around the sixth boro in the past weeks . . .  is this batch, starting with BBC Germany, heading up the North River.

Kitikmeot W had Dory alongside,

She was previously . . . Icdas 09.

Genava, homeported in the impossible saltwater port of Basel and formerly Tsuneishi Zhoushan Ss 180, discharges Chilean salt.

Maritime Kelly Anne preps for departure.

Parallel to the previous shot lies FPMC 24, with Lesney Byrd providing lubrication oils.   Without looking it up, what do you suppose FPMC expands to?

Sten Odin has to be the newest vessel in today’s set.

 

And finally, in the anchorage near the VZ Bridge, it’s Ladon and Chemneon.

All photos by WVD.

And FPMC . . . is Formosa Plastics Marine Corporation, based here.  I never saw that coming.

Want to check out Random Tugs 001?  The  001 got added more recently than 2007 because back then,  I had no idea I’d go on.  In the 2007 photo, might that be Mary Turecamo along with the Reinauer tugs, which are also still at work operating out of the sixth boro.  The other morning Mary Turecamo was assisting MSC Maria Elena  . . . . The tugboat has always been known by that name.

The many times renamed and reconfigured Brooklyn approaches from . . .. Brooklyn.  I first saw her as Labrador Sea.

Brendan Turecamo, also renamed a number of times,  takes the back channel out the Kills.  That’s Bayonne in the background and a crane in Port Elizabeth beyond that.

Catching Genesis Eagle out of the notch is a treat.  The third photo here shows a photo of the same boat as Eagle Service in roughly the same place a decade ago, although I was catching the opposite perspective.

 

It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen this particular Mary Gellatly moving around the sixth boro, but here she is, and I  recognize the man with a camera between the wheelhouse and the stacks.

She was previously Vernon C, as in the top two photos here.

Dory is another boat that has changed hands and names and appearances.  See her here . . .  if you scroll.

Dory appears to be working with a Harley barge alongside a ship, bunkering ? . . . Kitikmeot W.

And let’s conclude with one of the newest boats in the harbor . . .  Ava M McAllister, here returning from escorting a c-ship out toward the Narrows.   Click here for photos from her christening half a year ago.

All photos, Will Van Dorp.
