Quick. Name this unit . . . or at least the current and previous operators?
I haven’t seen many Gateway Towing tugs along my usual haunts, but here’s Connecticut.
Nanticoke, about 10-years-old now, the second of the Patapsco 4200 hp class, pushes a payload enclosed in Doubleskin 305.
Pacific Reliance, at the dock, is made up to the 650-1, whose capacity is 155,000 bbl.
So . . that unit in the top photo is Genesis Vision, formerly Superior Service
pushing GM 6508. Here was a photo of the tug as Superior Service, only four years ago.

And if you have not seen it yet, here’s an 18-minute video of the saga of the former Katie G and Colleen McAllister, which I captured the first hours of here as they headed east on the East River on their long journey to western Michigan. Here was my Part 2 of that voyage, with collaboration from colleagues.
Here from eight years ago is Katie G moving petroleum product and remaking a tow right off the Battery.
Iron Mike . . . 1977 and 53′ loa . . . has lots of character
although I don’t know what engine/horsepower moves her. Anyone?
If we were talking birds, Pacific Reliance (red stacks) would be called an exotic, not common to this habitat. Pacific Reliance . . . built in 2006 and 121′ loa uses 9280 hp to move her payload. Alongside is Quantico Creek, 90′ loa launched in 2010 and rated at 3000 hp.
Brooklyn, 76′ loa, launched in 2000 with 2000 hp has had lots of identities in her 14 years of service.
And finally . . . dwarfed by the Lower Manhattan skyline in February, it’s Pegasus.
Built in 2001, 75′ loa and rated at 1900 hp.
