Here are previous iterations, just to change things up.  Non-random here means I took these over a few weeks, which should be obvious as you look through the photos.

Atlantic Enterprise . .  . she’s big at 136′ x 40′.  Over the past few years, she has appeared here.  Before that, she was in the sixth boro but much less active as Barents Sea. She had different names before Barents going back to 1976.

Although slightly older than Atlantic Salvor, the two boats appear to be mostly similar. An Atlantic Salvor tow I’ll always remember relates to the WTC antenna here.

Some companies have a crew boat.  Behold Matthew Scott, a 1968 Gulf Craft 65′ x 16′.

When I first saw Caitlin Ann, she was called Vivian L. Roehrig.

The 79′ x 24′ tug keeps busy.

Hidden behind this barge,

it’s Sarah Ann, who i first knew as June K

I did a post on Brian Nicholas some years back.  I don’t recall ever seeing her as Banda Sea, but in this post from June 2009, that name was still showing . . . .

My favorite photo of Paul Andrew over the years

is this one, showing the 64′ x 23′ tugboat getting transferred, so to speak.

Mary Alice is one of the larger DonJon boats, at 92′ x 27′.

We’ll end with another shot of Atlantic Enterprise, distinguishable from Salvor   (my photo during the tugboat race September 5, 2010)

by that fire monitor.

Other DonJon boats– Meagan Ann, Emily Ann, Rebecca Ann, Thomas D., who else  did I miss–I’ve not seen so far in fall 2020.

All photos, WVD.

Bowsprite put up an interesting post recently of shots made sans tripod showing ships passing in the night as some runny ooze (oozy run?), but it’s pretty and she herself makes comparisons with fruitcake, which I like.  But I wish to show here that ships do NOT always pass in the night, do NOT always approach and separate without making a difference or lasting impression.  They also pass in the day, in the effulgence of 10 am springtime warm sun.  Like Zim San Francisco,

Dynamic Express neither upwind nor upriver but surely uplight,

Some interesting statistics on the decline in shipping demand and prices can be had in this article from a recent issue of the New York Times.

Remember . . . ships do NOT only pass in the night.  I prefer mine in daylight, if I might choose.

Photos, WVD.
