Ditto . . . here was Annabelle V. Roehrig is early 2008, which

This is an impressive lineup in the late fall afternoon light:  the McAllisters Kate, Bruce, Helen, Brothers, Brian .  . and more.

This vessel I truly don’t know.  It’s new in the harbor, and I have a hunch . . . but will keep that to myself.

So what happens in the rest of the sixth boro during Fleet Week?  Works goes on.  Ellen goes past the Statue to the next job, possibly to move USCGC Eagle out.

As is McKinley Sea, with its Kirby livery.

Terrapin Island continues its 24/7 sand moving.

Tankers transfer fluids and container vessels come and go.

Susquehanna follows Quantico Creek to the east.

Holiday jetskiers race off bow waves, abandoning prudence and caution.

Gulf Service awaits an appointment at the tanks.

Ice-bowed Ice Hawk, newly painted and

maybe newly-named, awaits its call.

And (in town for OpSail, Bay City, Michigan registered Appledore V, enjoys the late Monday sun and breeze.

Unrelated from Lake Michigan:  1907 SS Keewatin moves.
