Most if not all of these vessels have appeared here before, but bear with me because a surprise follows.

Paul Andrew eastbound on the East River,

heading in the same direction about the same hour are Catherine Miller and

Susan Miller.  By the way, in the pic above here’s a close-up of that green sculpture almost dead center of the photo.

Ok, now we’re getting to the “different” part.  Note Maryland in December 2008 and

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

in early April 2015.

Ditto Baltic Sea in August 2009 and –gasp—

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

last year.  I concur with someone on FB who said it appears she’s been whitewashed with some trim made out of crude oil mixed with pulverized charcoal.  This is sad to see.

And these photos are from an ad that’s now over a year old.  I wonder if they changed hands . . .

Can anyone identify the other tug in the center of the photo below?

All photos except the last three by Will Van Dorp.

Here was 4.  Pairings suggest to me springtime, and I certainly am ready for that to happen.

Here a blindingly cold blue Meagan Ann departs the Kills with a team of scows

Cape Sally and Cape Heane.  Are there really capes by these names?

From back in January . . . it’s Chesapeake 1000 towed into the Kills by

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Mary Alice and tailed by

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Emily Ann.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Non-matching but a pair nonetheless here is Paul Andrew and Liberty V.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And since this post seems to be sticking to the color blue, here’s a pair I took a photo of midMay last year… Emily Ann driving Crow‘s last ride.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And although red . . . Little Bear and bigger sister Bear . . . has anyone recently gotten a photo of them you could share here?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To end on a blue note . . . does anyone ave photos of Atlantic Salvor in its current Caribbean context?

All photos here by Will Van Dorp.

Over six years ago, here was the last time I used this title.  At 09:23 this morning, E. R. Denver was at Howland Hook as an outbound tanker eased by.   E. R. seems to have been created by erasure from MaERsk.

. . . nine seconds later, it’s

Mount Everest.

This is serious, precision navigating,

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

with even less tolerance of errors because of the channel work, and

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

surrounding traffic, like Kristy Ann Reinauer and Paul Andrew and dredge units.

This short stretch of Arthur Kill, where serious dredging is enlarging the channel, were featured here and here (a blast!!) back last October.   I’m not given to playing video games or using simulators, but if such a thing were available, I can imagine spending time playing “games” imitating professionals piloting different types of vessels through ports of the world in every sort of conditions.  Hats off to the professionals.

All fotos today by Will Van Dorp.
