I’ve done posts with titles like 15 minutes or 18 . . . but here’s a set shot in just three minutes, just after that strange cloud–comet’s tail?–passed the day the temps went up to 65 midday for a few hours, setting a NYC record for that day.
Here’s Jonathan C from head-on, with Shooters Island off the stern.
Zooming out shows Pegasus and Kimberly Poling using Edwin A. Poling, and the cranes at Howland Hook.
It looks like some refinishing is happening on Pegasus.
Mary H pushes Patriot heading the other direction.
That church in a lot of photos is Immaculate Heart in Elizabeth NJ.

It surprises me sometimes what titles I’ve not re-used. This blog has little grand design; I choose to let to drift serendipitously according to what I see or what you choose to share, and I am grateful to you all for sending along photos and suggestions. Rock Juice the title came out of a conversation some time back with one of you; thanks and I think you know who you are. Here was the first in the series.
Diane B pushes a load of it in John Blanche.
Magothy . . . and . . .
and I missed the barge info.
Dory and Port Chester . . . . And notice just forward of Dory‘s wheelhouse, it’s
Navigator . . . doing something at an oil dock.
Ditto Mary H, over between the Empire State Building and BW Kronborg.
Ditto Kimberly Poling.
And McKinley Sea . . . with the icicle hanging from a scupper hole as evidence that oil is going for heat.
Last one for now . . . Calusa Coast getting ready to hook up to a barge to take . . well . . . down the coast.
All photos yesterday by Will Van Dorp, who has to run.
Here was 5 in this series.
This is the view from the bridge looking forward on Key Frontier, built 2011 in Maizuru, Japan. From this point to the bow is 638′ and to the stern is about 100′. Note the approaching tug and barge.
The length on the tug is 64′ .
The orange tanker in the distance is 800′. See the crewman standing on the edge of hold #4 just to the left of the green half mark for the helipad? He’s around 6′.
He’s a spotter for activity below inside the hold.
can hold holds 30 tons when full.
When a hold is just about empty, a loader is lowered to assist in filling the bucket.
These trucks can hold up to 40 tons. The ship transports between 50 and 60 thousand tons.
Safe driving on the ice.

Mary H pushed a creek-size barge.
Winter fishing continued apace aboard Eastern Welder.
I got a close-up of Mary H.

A slightly different angle on Sorensen Miller shows the yellow as strapping.
More shots of John P. Brown moving railcars over to New Jersey.
A Moose boat on patrol barreled right at me.
Hunting Creek got light at the mooring.
And a USACE boat practiced bathymetry.

Unrelated . . . another blog I read these days is Ohio River blog with good inland rivers fotos here. And since I’m all over the place today . . .check out this Flickr page by Guillermo Barrios of southern South American tugs and towboats.
