I’m guessing Eric R Thornton is off in search of some scrap waiting in

the Bronx maybe?

It’s been a long while since I’ve seen Penn No. 6, and here she and Normandy are made up to Penn No. 121.  See those four shore cranes against the sky?  Here’s a post I did on them almost a decade ago.

 

Here’s B. No. 250 eastbound for the Sound, with

Evening Star in the notch.

Some people would be pleased with this juxtaposition: MTA’s Highbridge Yard, with Harbor II, MetroNorth, and the 44th Precinct Police Station!

Barbara Ann holds station at the University Heights Bridge, with the unmistakeable Hall of Fame for Great Americans dome over the treeline.  That’s a place I’ve yet to visit, one of many places in the five boros.

Ditto . . . Ireland on the north side of that bridge.

 

And to conclude for another day . . . it’s Penn No. 91 with

Skipjack in the notch.

Oops!  All photos by Will Van Dorp . . . from aboard Manhattan II.

A connection between the vessels below other than that I took all the fotos in the past two weeks . . . eludes me for now, but you might know of a link, several even, beyond the obvious.    Brian Nicholas pushes scrap over to Claremont moving past the gray Penn No 6.

Joan Turecamo and Doris Moran dwarf the landmark Moran barn.

Since pairs has emerged as a unifier here, I’ll point out that Liberty Service anchors off the Palisades with its mated barge, but from this angle, all I know is that barge carries New Orleans registry, but then again, that’s true of all Hornbeck equipment, I think.

The outatowner Irish Sea hangs for now with DBL134 over at Constable Hook aka Con Hook.

Donjon, Penn Maritime, Miller, Hornbeck, Moran, K-Sea . . . a connection that presents itself is that they all operate in sixth boro waters, accessible to Atlantic Basin, where PortSide New York is poised to create a maritime hub.  This will increase access to the retired oil tanker Mary Whalen and create programs about the waterfront on the waterfront.  This space will host workboats like the ones above  as well as historic, government, excursion, and charter vessels.

Buy tickets here and now for PortSide NewYork’s fundraiser from 6pm til 9 pm this Saturday night  at the Brooklyn Lyceum. . .  or bid on line for the fabulous auction items (like a catered dinner at a private waterfront location with Bowsprite and me)  on eBay.

PS1:    Remember the Nigerian tug Yenagoa Ocean taken by Somali pirates?  Here’s my post.  According to EagleSpeak (scroll to June 8 ) and Australia.To . . . the crew of Yenegoa Ocean has escaped, in their tug!  Bravo!

In the vein of the five sightless people describing an elephant while each touching a different part of its body:  leg, tail, trunk, flank, and tusk  and each coming up with radically divergent views of the beast, here’s my attempt to see tugboats from one of many possible unusual angles . . . bow and stern.    Below,  Norwegian Sea, dawn in the north end of Arthur Kill,

Now as for more “new” angles . . . I’m working on it.  If you’re privy to angles off-limits to me, I thank you to take some fotos and send them along.

Unrelated:  A new logbook page has beamed in from obsessed Henry and the Half Moon headed for Cathay 1609.  Check it out here.
