Here was ASB 2.  There might be eight million stories in the naked city, but in its primary boro aka the sixth boro at least half again that number of other stories could be told  . .  by the collective whoever knows them.

Captain Zeke moves with the diverse stone trade past folks waiting below our very own waving girl and

Here’s a first-timer for me in the sixth boro . . . Miss Emily, a saltwater member of the huge Marquette Transportation fleet.  Look carefully and you’ll see she sports equipment not commonly seen here.

One of my favorite harbor vessels . . . now called Ellen McAllister, used to do gray-work in Holy Loch, Scotland.  Here’s more on Holy Loch and its role in the Cold War.

I’ve no idea how long Harry McNeal has worked the boro, but she was launched in Louisiana in 1965.

Ditto my question on history of Robert IV . .  who launched in Louisiana in 1975.

Ruth M. Reinauer is the mother of facet tugs launched in Rhode Island around a half decade ago.

Discovery Coast might be the newest tug in this installment.  It’s the creation of Frank Basile, whose bio as written by Brian Gauvin can be found here.  For a portfolio of his work, click here.

JoAnne III Reinauer, a 1970 vessel with a 2008 aluminum tower is one of the more unusual tugs in the sixth boro.  For a before-after look on tugster, click here.

Finally, a 1980 Oyster Bay, NY built vessel . . . now called Siberian Sea.

And that equipment unique to Miss Emily . . . it’s this knotted rope escape system.  To see this in use, look at fotos 7 and 8 in this tugster post from three years ago.

Over six years ago, here was the last time I used this title.  At 09:23 this morning, E. R. Denver was at Howland Hook as an outbound tanker eased by.   E. R. seems to have been created by erasure from MaERsk.

This is serious, precision navigating,

This short stretch of Arthur Kill, where serious dredging is enlarging the channel, were featured here and here (a blast!!) back last October.   I’m not given to playing video games or using simulators, but if such a thing were available, I can imagine spending time playing “games” imitating professionals piloting different types of vessels through ports of the world in every sort of conditions.  Hats off to the professionals.

All fotos today by Will Van Dorp.
