So, below . .. it’s a light Stephen-Scott, which way be the oldest vessel (1967) in the Reinauer Transportation Company fleet today.
Morgan Renauer (1981), here pushing RTC 101, was originally built for Poling Transportation.
Jason Reinauer (1968), up in Albany since last winter’s ice, dates from 1968.
Laurie Ann Reinauer (2009), dating from the first generation of facet tug construction, moves RTC 85.
B. Franklin Reinauer (2012) is the first of the second generation of facet tugs. Click here for a Professional Mariner article on what a “facet tug” is.
Reinauer Twins (2011)–referenced in that PM article above–if compared with the photo above, shows design differences between the two facet tug generations.
Dean Reinauer (2013) is similar to Reinauer Twins and
Haggerty Girls (also 2013) resembles B. Franklin Reinauer.
Kristy Ann Reinauer (1962) either has been of will be scrapped.

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
all those folks waving and taking fotos from the ferry and every other water conveyance.
The 1950 Nantucket‘s back in town . . for the winter.
Yup . . . no one could have predicted these . . .
back when Shearwater was launched in 1929.

Kristy Ann Reinauer stands by a construction barge.
A barge named Progress has returned to South Street Seaport Museum, here between Wavertree and Peking.

another with the Arabian Sea unit.

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.
Zachery Reinauer was built upstate at Matton 42 years ago.
Kristy Ann Reinauer, 51 years old, offers some style hints of 1960s trucks like this one.
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.
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,
with even less tolerance of errors because of the channel work, and
surrounding traffic, like Kristy Ann Reinauer and Paul Andrew and dredge units.
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.
