No, it has nothing to do with dance, but refers to my bird guide which calls “exotic” anything appearing outside of its usual habitat.  Here are the previous exotics posts.

These photos were all taken by Mike Abegg in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

It’s Beverly M I, a McKeil tug.  I quote from the site linked:  “built in 1993 by Imamura Shipbuilding of Japan as the Shek O for Hong Kong Towing and Salvage.”  Remember, Canada has no Jones Act-type origin rules.

 

 

A tug registered in St. John’s . . .  I’d call that exotic.  Anyone know the story?  Since it delivered a barge that went into the graving dock, I’m guessing it was an emergency repair.

I’ve seen her fleet mate–Sharon M I— several times on the Great Lakes.

Many thanks to Mike for getting these photos.  Click here to see his previous catches.

 

A month ago, I posted some really random tugs here, including the one below in the mysterious Miami River.  Yesterday, thanks to Robert Cremer, the tug below was identified as LT-1970, a Higgins Industries October 1953-delivered tug once known as Okinawa.  Thanks much to Robert.  The photo below is taken by Allan Seymour.

The next set of photos comes from Mike Abegg, last North American captain of Half Moon, now not-yet arrived in Hoorn.

These photos were taken over near SUNY Maritime.  The tug tending the barges I thought would look this, but actually Moran has sold it to Norfolk Tug, and the photos below shows its current livery. Sorry if that sounds confusing.

And the final photo today comes from Rich Taylor.   La Dani (1981) illustrates what I enjoy about seeing tugboats from other ports in the watery parts of the world.  I’ve seen no US built tug that looks quite like this.  Here’s a page devoted to the Dunston portion of her builder.
