Sorry for the hiatus in posting. I was out at sunrise New Years Day . . . but more on that in a moment.
Part of my silence was attributable to verizon. The rest . . . was because I decided to ACT on new year’s resolutions, not just make them.
The first photos after sunrise January 1 . . . Buchanan 1, who must have been towing a loaded dredge spois scow out as the new years whistles were blowing and fireworks blasting. Bravo, Buchanan 1.
The linemen/boom managers were out working, as
were the crews of Lucy Reinauer and pilot boat Yankee.
Jay Michael headed out with a scow load of dredge spoils, evidence that dredgers worked their way from 2014 to 2015.
And Bering Sea . . . heads west into the Kills, having passed Gotland Marieann.

All fotos here from yesterday . ..
Liberty Service as you may never have seen her. Here (third foto in this link) she was four years ago.
In the past year, this Pegasus has sprouted an upper wheelhouse; compare with here.
Welcome to the waters around Houston. Well . .. I do mean the 118,000-barrel barge married to Linda Moran. Uh . . . do tugs and barges ever get divorced?
Trucks on the water pushed by Shawn Miller.
I realized only later that–had my conveyance lingered here–I would have seen Catherine C. Miller push past with FIVE trailers/tractors on a barge. See her in the distance there beyond the bow of RTC 83.
Reinauer Twins waits alongside RTC 104 with a faux lighthouse in the background.
Lucy Reinauer–earlier Texaco Diesel Chief built in Oyster Bay NY–is the push behind RTC 83.
And thanks to wide-eyed bowsprite, a vessel I’ve not seen before pushing stone. It’s Patricia. She reminds me of a vessel I spotted along the road a few years back . . . Hoss.
So, this is the “plus” in the title, the group-sourcing request portion of this post: what company is operating Patricia?
And another question . . . from an eagle-eyed upriver captain. Notice the weather instruments on this channel marker just off Bannerman’s Island (I am planning to do another post on this unique location north of West Point.) And . . .
here are more weather instruments on this federally-maintained channel marker off the Rondout. Questions: who’s responsible for these and is there a website where the data collected can be monitored?
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, except for the last three, which come from bowsprite and Capt. Thalassa.
Speaking of bowsprite, today she’s running Radio Lilac and I’ll be there tending bar. Here’s something of the inspiration. Come on by if you have the time. Teleport in if you’re otherwise out of range.
A laker (or ex-laker) in salt water . . . now that’s a thought that delights me, although I admit the foto is less than mediocre, but it’s Pioneer. Quite a few salties ply the Great Lakes. Note the characteristic self-unloading gear midships. She looks to be a sibling of M/V Ambassador, which last appeared here about two years ago. Since I took this foto, Pioneer has shuttled up to Halifax and is now southwest bound again, for Portsmouth, NH.
Eddie Carroll, one of the scow’s transporting spoils from the dredging at the north end of the Arthur Kill looks in need of some paint, although the scaly rust does give character.
Here’s the first of recent sights to behold: Meagan Ann towing scow Witte 4001 all the way through the KVK.
Witte 4001 has the cubic yard capacity of at least 40 dump trailers. Mary Alice . . . near the Bayonne Bridge . . . moves a scow alongside.
Weddell Sea pushing 2004 Senesco-built DBL 83 (ex-The Patriot),
sternview of the classic 1967 YTB-793 known to most around the sixth boro as Ellen McAllister,
at least three tugs (I believe . . . Margaret Moran, Laura K. Moran, and Ellen McAllister) and two container ships (Italy Express and MOL Endowment) entering port. As I pot this, MOL Endowment is passing St Pierre et Miquelon, and Italy Express–also Europe-bound–is not that far behind.
another stern view, this one of 1980 USACE Gelberman, built in Arkansas,
Maria J moves a barge over toward the Gowanus, while Lucy Reinauer awaits departure for Baltimore,
The list could go on, but I’m out of time once again.

Click here for some not delightful at all statistics about losses in sixth boro ports as a result of Sandy.
The same day, Capt. Jason (1982) breezed through the harbor, a first glimpse for me. I have not much more info.
Gulf Dawn appeared here.
And regulars include Catherine Miller,
Laura K. Moran,
Evening Mist sailing here through golden evening sheen,
and Sassafras paralleling a container ship.
