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.
Tugster does not strive to be a “shipping news” site, but each time I walk or ride my beat, I DO keep an watchful eye for change, novelty, well . . . new sights. Certainly this was true yesterday: let’s start with the orange vessel to your left. You’ve seen the colors before, but is that a “hole through the stern above deck”?
I have a feeling we’ll be seeing a bit more of Swan in the next few days. And I trust lessons have been learned from last spring’s Blue Marlin saga.
Rosemary Miller? New too. I wonder what has become of Sorenson Miller.
With spring comes the sailing season, and America 2.0 . . . I last saw closeup here last fall.
And one last “newby” I was lucky to catch yesterday was Mark Moran, headed south to . . who knows where? Mark‘s so new that even on Birk and Harold’s excellent site, there’s only a drawing of her.
For the news from the Narrows between Detroit (which means “the narrows” in French) and Windsor, click here for Isaac’s site and some great fotos from Wade. The surprise there for me was Zeus, who worked the sixth boro a bit a few years back. Also, there are more shots of DonJon’s huge Great Lakes ATB unit.
Also, of course please vote for tug Pegasus and Lehigh Valley 79. The fact that they’re not in the top few places should NOT be a reason to give up; we have a daily vote until the 21st.
