Call me a wimp . . . but it’s icy out there. And yet people work outside. Bravo and hats on for the crews and shipyard workers out there where the spray sometimes freezes. Some quick fotos I took yesterday. Would you believe this is the same DBL 140 barge you see in the 5th and 6th fotos here?
Here’s DBL 140 and Lincoln Sea from across the Upper Bay.
Traffic never stops because of some cold.
A tanker with a classic name
One positive about cold, low humidity air . . . it’s clear. Ocean Leader could never look this good
on a muggy summer day.
Ditto Ruth M. Reinauer moving RTC 102 with an assist from Jill Reinauer.
Anyone handling line on a day like this needs the right gear and
a focus on getting the work done safely.
Bravo and hats on!!
As I write this post, Lincoln Sea is southbound on the Hudson, just south of where Stena Primorsk ran out of the channel a month or so ago. Weddell Sea/Lincoln Sea foto was taken back in earlier September 2012.
This closeup of the Lincoln Sea-DBL 140 embrace seems small and intimate until you read the gradations on the the barge . . . those numbers mark feet.
Length and breath of the tug-barge unit
is 597′ x 79.’
Ocean Leader, here coming into the Narrows four days ago and currently in Port of Albany, is also 597′ loa but a little beamier: 105′ . . . panamax wide.
I don’t have the tug/barge dimensions of B. Franklin Reinauer/RTC 82, here paralleling Ocean Leader.
Behind tugboat John P. Brown (75′ x 26′) lies Stena Primorsk, in the “hole” undergoing repairs at Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair, and shown
here about a week pre-accident. Dimensions of Stena Primorsk: 597′ x 131′ . . . . 280,000 barrel capacity. Lincoln Sea‘s DBL 140 capacity is 140,000 barrels.
