Here were previous snapshots of sample small craft on the sixth boro, a city of water all summer and all other seasons as well. Here one of the four-season RIBs of NY Media Boat passes along the western margins of Brooklyn, where a lot of folks congregate in the evening.
Manhattan is one of Classic Harbor Line‘s vessel.
Crew launch Christian works all summer and all other seasons too.
Tara heads under the Brooklyn Bridge as light fades.
Fish appear to be active over where Kate used to chum with food scraps.
And this skipper seemed to enjoy pushing his craft against the currents in Hell Gate.
And there are so many other small craft in all parts of the sixth boro. All these photos taken recently by Will Van Dorp.
Here’s Ocean Traverse Nord, 213′ loa and a trailing suction hopper dredge built in Quebec City in 2012.
Here’s Manhattan, trailing suction hopper dredge built in Sparrows Point in 1904, hull #43.
And this is Atlantic, hull #44, also from Sparrows Point.
Finally, Dodge Island, loa 275′ and built in Slidell LA in 1980.
Thanks to Barrel for the archival photos; the two color photos by Will Van Dorp.

With apologies to Eugene O’Neill for the title, I rode a fuel boat around the sixth boro today. No matter that it was 4 degrees above zero (-15 degrees centigrade) this morning, vessels run with passengers and the “station” comes to the boats –some of them–in this realm. And if there’s ice like the facial features of Capt Davy Jones on the receptacle, it has to
be moved so that fuel can flow.
Enjoy these cold photos.
Here’s the fuel boat.
More soon. Til then, I can’t wait to look at these photo in July when the sweat is dripping off me and I’ll looking to chill.

A little more watercolor from yesterday . . . the rainbow injects magic into what otherwise might just be distant Brooklyn waterfront, Clipper City, and a Staten Island ferry.
Here’s what creates the conditions for a rainbow.
Color on water, this time reflecting a certain survey boat with unique paint loss patterns.
You will notice an apparent repetitiveness in the next set of fotos of Frying Pan over at Pier 66 Maritime–my favorite place on the Manhattan waterfront, except not
really. The evanescent colored shapes so took me that I just keep shooting as
Harvey‘s propwash made ripples and
swirls and pulsations and
teases, glimpses of LV-115 Frying Pan‘s chartreuse hairy nether parts.
All was fine until I imagined what other situations exist that colors the
waters this living red or
rusty, risky brown .
