Margaret shines “brightly” over by Fort Wadsworth.

Scott Turecamo transfers commodity over at the east end of Bayonne.

I think it is Miss Julia, but I still know nothing about her.

Of the Seaboats fleet absorbed into Kirby, Weddell Sea is the only one I see these days, and here she

gets assistance to the dock from Normandy.

Gracie M. was the newest Reinauer boat at least three boats ago.

With the ongoing renewal in the Reinauer fleet, Morgan must be among the oldest boats they operate.

And I’ll never forget an tempestuous morning when first I heard Evelyn‘s sound, when she was working as Melvin E. Lemmerhirt.

And that returns us to Margaret.

All photos by Will Van Dorp.

 

Prayers for and condolences to families/friends of Specialist crew.  Here’s a photo I took of the boat back in 2007.

Another crane barge, this one pushed by Quenames, which I never seen pushing anything but a petroleum barge.

And finally, it’s Harry McNeal and Miss Julia  . .. again moving crane barges.

Last one for today . . . it’s JRT Moran, and those do not look like deckhands on the bow.  I’m just wondering.

The container ship being assisted is Northern Justice.

No matter what you do, be careful out there.  Here’s the latest USCG report I could find.

The first four photos come with many thanks to Bonnie frogma, the intrepid “river rat” who’s currently devoting lots of time to preparations for arrival to the sixth boro of Hokule’a.  I know nothing about this particular Lil Toot.

Bonnie took these photos on Jamaica Bay.  Note the cliffs of Manhattan in the distance.

Emily I believe is the 1961 built 35-footer.   Bonnie first posted photos of Emily here.

I took this photo last weekend.  I’ve seen 70′ Wollochet on AIS, but here’s my first view of her crossing sixth boro center stage.

What this appears like notwithstanding, I think the local boat under 40′ is called Miss Julia.

Here’s one of the half-century-plus-old WYTLs on the far side of Robbins Reef Light recently, one of the tools the USCG chooses for ice-breaking in the wintery Hudson.  Click here and scroll through to see a WYTL making ice cubes a half decade back.

Mako III is a 45′ tug the same age as I am.

Last but certainly not least, Allan Seymour sent this along from the Miami River, and I have no idea about a name or a story.  Anyone help out?

Many thanks to Bonnie and Allen for some of these photos.   If you’ve wondered about the name frogma, read this.

Unrelated and sad news just passed along by Michele.  Remember this post and this one about goats at the Narrows?  Here was my first contact.

Here’s the sad news.  Here’s the marketing concept.
