It’s hard to believe that this title has come up 286 times before today, but here they all are.  And yet, I’m starting out with a photo of Ellen McAllister, who herself has appeared here hundreds of times, but never quite like this, heading into the  dawn and about to pass an unidentifiable Vane tugboat.

Ditto Pegasus, passing between a Bouchard tug to the left and some Centerline boats to the right, and below that ONE container on the bridge and the Fedex plane in the sky.

Double Skin 57 and Long Island, previously Peter F. Gellatly,  moves a barge past IMTT, where some Reinauer boats–RTC 103 and Morgan— are taking on product.

Potomac gets an assist from Fort Schuyler.

Ava M. McAllister passes UACC Ibn Al Haitham, where Genesis Victory is lightering and Liz Vinik assisting.

On another morning, Fort Schuyler heads for the Upper Bay, and that looks like Kristin Poling in the distance to the left.

And where Meredith C. Reinauer is lightering Marvin Faith, Bouchard’s Linda Lee, Ellen S., and Evening Breeze look on.

All photos recently by WVD,who had to look up the namesake of the UACC crude carrier.   He turns out to be a Basra-born scientist from a millenium (!!) ago.  That link is worth a read.

 

Here are some previous ones.

I caught TS Kennedy anchored in Stapleton yesterday, and

soon thereafter she heaved up anchor and headed for sea . . . for home.

Meanwhile, FS Primauguet, allegedly from Reykjavik, arrived, maybe to check on the current status of this monumental French gift to the people of the US. This is an anti-submarine frigate with a towed array sonar.

She got this far sooner than I had expected.

A few weeks ago, I caught USCGC Seneca (WMEC-906) off Orient Pointe . . .

Today’s spotlight’s is Emerald Coast, Long Island, Tangier Island, Sassafras, and Brooklyn . . .

How many islands do you see in this photo?

Well, the upper wheelhouse of Long Island is all you could see of the tugboat in the photo above.  Below you see the port side of the tugboat, possibly the newest Vane Brothers’ name in the sixth boro.

Below is Tangier Island.  Now you’d almost think there’s a new class emerging with these two boats, except Tangier Island is rated at 3000 hp and

and Long Island, at 4200.  Now if you look closely at the name of the bow of the tug, you’ll see some raised letters  . . . TLY and

here you’ll notice the PE . . . .

So no need to imagine this as a new class . . . an Island class . . . it’s the old Peter F. Gellatly, whose evolution continues.
