Those look like icicles, and beyond the icicled railing, that’s certainly a wreath decorated with CFR § 83.33 signalling device . . . aka bell.  And are those partial candy canes way in the distance?

And a Christmas . .  as well as all-year round star!

Seen from a different perspective, I think this is classy.

Thanks, Pegasus crew.  This is my first sighting of a sixth boro Christmas. 

All photos, WVD.

Last year, part 1 M was here. Since I’m early, there’s still time for more 2020 merry posts.  And of course, I welcome any photos sent in, with other people’s Christmas photos like these.  I shouldn’t have favorite tugster posts, but this 1,    2,    and   rank pretty high, especially because of the folks I met in the research process.

If you want to send paper merriment, there’s always bowsprite’s shop.

Here’s 56.  Pegasus, 2006-launched.  Ex-Al Cenac;  now belonging to Metropolitan Marine Transportation.

Turecamo Girls, 1965.

Cape Cod, 1967.  I expected that fishing boat to surf toward me.

Ron G, 1978, but new to the sixth boro.

Captain D, 1974, ex-Dick Bollinger.

Her eminence, Gramma Lee T Moran, 2002

The fleety Maurania III, 2004.  See Mitch’s Newtown Pentacle here for the tugboat race results.

Bering Sea, 1975, ex-Stacy Moran and Cougar.

Ruth M Reinauer, 2009

Frederick E Bouchard, and I can’t find info on vintage.

Margaret Moran, 1979, and I believe that gull in the foreground is none-other-than the runaway Homie.  I suppose I should tell Captain Joey about the sighting?

All fotos taken Sunday by Will Van Dorp.
