I’ve done posts with titles like 15 minutes or 18 . . . but here’s a set shot in just three minutes, just after that strange cloud–comet’s tail?–passed the day the temps went up to 65 midday for a few hours, setting a NYC record for that day.
Here’s Jonathan C from head-on, with Shooters Island off the stern.
Zooming out shows Pegasus and Kimberly Poling using Edwin A. Poling, and the cranes at Howland Hook.
It looks like some refinishing is happening on Pegasus.
Mary H pushes Patriot heading the other direction.
That church in a lot of photos is Immaculate Heart in Elizabeth NJ.
All photos by Will Van Dorp.
Here’s a seldom-seen tugboat, delivered in 1977 by Gladding Hearn, who builds everything from rowboats to pilot boats to tugboats . . . it’s Tappan Zee II,
Here’s a photo of Patriot, which had a mishap the next day from when I took the photo.
Here’s Fred Johannsen, formerly known as Marco Island.
Here comes Kimberly Poling with Edwin A. Poling, rounding the bend between West Point and Garrison. Can anyone identify the yellow/tan house on the ridge line?
In roughly the same location, it’s Mister Jim with some very deep stone scows.
And I’ll end today’s post with an unidentified tugboat near Newburgh.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who’s back in the sixth boro but recapitulating the trip west . . . a task which could take a month.
I hope to see some of you at the screening of Graves of Arthur Kill at the the Staten Island ferry terminal on August 13.
All photos in this series came via “Barrel,” a 30+ year employee of USACE, and they’ve raised a handful of questions, launched a clutch of searches.
Stacy McAllister, previously Houma . . . I don’t know the year this photo was taken, but since YTL-811 came into McAllister hands in 2003, that fact narrows the date. By my count, McAllister has over a dozen–13 by my count–of these similarly remodeled tugs acquired through the Defense Reutilization and Marketing Service. How many can you name? My answer follows.
This photo of triple-screw Patriot, in a previous Vane Brothers livery, had to have been taken between 2001 and 2009, after which date Vane sold it to Mexico. See the last photo in this link.
Here’s a mystery . . . Which company’s logo is that on the stack of Anne, towing the Loveland 22 barge with the 260 rocket motor. And what type of antenna is that on the after portion of Anne‘s deckhouse?
Nearer is Connor A. Gisclair, now possibly known as Mr. Connor. Anyone identify the smaller farther-away tug with the barge alongside?
USACE tug Deland was built in 1919, and if my info is correct, it has been transformed into a commercial fishing vessel called Pursuit, operated out of Panama City FL. I’ve tried unsuccessfully to find a photo of Pursuit. Can anyone help?
This photo looks quite similar. Six of these vessels were built by Johnson Iron Works in 1919, one of which was called Degrey and sank off Atlantic City in 1976 then known as Patrice McAllister. Now forty years later, she’s still there and a popular diving spot in 55 feet of water. Click here for a story on how hurricane Sandy modified the Patrice wreck.
That’s it for today. All photos have been provided by Barrel.
And the 13 McAllister ex-YTBs are as follows: Kaleen ( Pontiac ), Stephen ( Okumulgee ), Jeffrey (Dahlonega), Margaret (Tonkawa), Donal G. (Antigo), Ellen (Piqua), Robert E. (Nanticoke), Beth M. (Ocala), Missy (Anoka), Dorothy (Tontocany), Patrick (Wathena), and Daniel —not the one in Montreal—( Shabonee ). There may in fact be others, given that Timothy McAllister (Wapato) is not listed on this site.
