Here was the first “play boats.”
For others it takes teeth and arms . . . even if faux. If you live along the Erie Canal, keep a watch since PT 728 will soon be moving over to Lake Erie.
Then there are Feadships like Utopia II.
Or there’s the plaything of Roman Abramovitch, the
vessel with the luxury tender, Luna!
And very near many of these playboats, a banded bird that plays with prey. To see more eagles along the Hudson and other birds, click here.
Change is the only constant. New stuff always appears, like this slightly different foto (than Saturday‘s) of Mark Moran, and
old stuff gets painted, again. Click on that link to see only some of the colors Greenland has worn over the past 22 years. I may be biased, but the K-Sea colors seemed to have suited her best.
This next series shows what I think is an ongoing filming of a Z-drive tug by a crew on another tug. “Reality show” BIG TELEVISION discovers the sixth boro” perhaps?
Notice in the third foto down here Ellen McAllister had the words “tractor tug” painted on her hull midships.
I also caught this behemoth yacht over at the Red Hook passenger terminal, where the Queen Mary 2 docks in town. My first thought was that it might be a yacht taking design inspiration from Discovery Coast (third down), but then I learned
it was Luna and predates Discovery. That small white craft on this side of Luna is
is R/V Nauvoo.
Finally, rounding out this newsy but very “mixed bag” is this clutch of sailing vessels, from left to right . . . Spirit of Massachusetts, America 2.0, and Adirondack. Next week promises many more sails.
All fotos this weekend by Will Van Dorp, who’s now minding a swan.
