Once upon a time in the sixth boro, there was a tug named Odin. The photo below is from April 2010.
Yesterday, I first thought Odin had returned, although I know that is not possible.
Pike comes to CMT from the cleanup project up on the Champlain Canal. Siblings of Pike back then were Hawk, Beaver, Otter, and Bass, some of which can be seen here.
For now, let me just say I love the color scheme. For history on Pike, click here.
She’d be ideal for work on the Erie Canal, I’d think.
And if you never saw Odin, here are a few more photos from 2010, and
–is that a bell on the port rail?–
and one photo from September 2008, showing how high she could raise the house. To see how low she went, click here.
Odin has since been completely (!!!) rebuilt and now looks like this, believe it or not.

I should rename this post “Time Warp.” I started it in May 2008 and this morning–in response to some Facebook exchanges–resurrected it. Maybe I will begin a series called “Time Warp,” though, and any photos no more than 20 years old–to pick an arbitrary boundary and to keep the series from becoming ancient time warp which could be its own thing– . . . any photos you wish to contribute no more than two decades old would be welcome. Maybe I gave up on this post six years back because I had too many unanswered questions.
Anyhow, to plunge back in . . . Robert Silva and Harold Tartell provided foto of Manhasset from way back, when it sported a flying horse on its stack . . . . I assumed this vessel was long ago scrapped. I’m also assuming the location of this shot can be pegged by the two LNG tanks in the background.
Here’s a photo I took in 2008: a different small tankship Mostank (1950) maneuvers close to a tanker. I don’t know if Galahad is still in service, and
Here in Arthur Kill to resupply, I suppose, Mostank . . . M O S being Marine Oil Service. Mostank shows up as registered until at least a year ago. Emma Miller now serves the sixth boro.
Back then, John B. Caddell was still working. Is she still intact?
Nathan E. Stewart was still in town and here moving Mary A. Whalen to the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
The unique Odin still worked here, and
Weddell Sea was still known as Scott C.

Here were 11, which clarifies the title . .. I hope.
I’ve had these fotos from Seth Tane for quite some time. I looked at them today while culling fotos from my library. Foto shows Foss tugs moving the Sauvie Island Bridge span into position near Portland, Oregon. Foss tugs visible are (I believe) the larger PJ Brix and Jim Moore.
This foto also shows Daniel Foss. The bridge move happened in late December 2007; see page 6 of this Foss publication. Looking up info on the Sauvie Island Bridge, I stumbled on the clever Flickr assemblage of fotos with the string “island bridge” in the name. Try playing with it to see bridges with those two words juxtaposed from everywhere.
Like I said, I was scrolling through and culling my 2008 fotos. Joan McAllister . . . haven’t seen it in a long time.
Ditto Crow. Has she been scrapped?
Later in summer 2008 I took this, M/T Great Gull . . . now operating near the Panama Canal.
And . . . last one for today, Odin passing the stern of ITB Groton, also sold foreign. ITBs like Groton, obsolete now, were technically catamaran tugs. Just forward of where the stream of water is exiting the hull is the “bow” of the tug; look above it and you’ll see the “seam” where tug and barge conjoin. I posted about ITBs here back in late November 2007, and since
I’ve been enhancing my fotos on this blogs, let me add a few to that post here. Here I’m looking between the “hulls” of the catamaran and toward the stern. Note the portside prop. For scale, note the size of the “lift basket” and yard worker. The aftmost portside portion of the “barge” fits into the groove.
Here’s the aftmost port starboard side of the barge. These two fotos were taken in the Brooklyn Navy Yard GMD November 2007.
Thanks much to Seth for starting this 2007/08 flashback. I feel like a veritable John Titor after this glance back at how much the harbor has changed in five years. All fotos except otherwise attributed, are mine.
