Here is one of the previous photos I’ve posted of Petersburg, a Higgins-built LT-2088, delivered in 1954.

Floating in a soup of eelgrass on a windless afternoon after a stormy week, every part of this half-century vessel begs to be admired.

The small fish in the clear water of New Harbor could not ever disturb the reflections.

Unrelated:  In the late 1980s a “pirate radio” ship broadcasting as RNI  anchored off Jones Beach.  The ship was called variously Lichfield II and Sarah.  According to this entry in wikipedia, “it was towed to its location off Long Island by Frank Ganter using his tugboat the M/V Munzer.”  Does anyone know anything about Munzer or Mr. Ganter?
