Thanks to Amy Bucciferro for the first two fotos here taken in San Francisco in early May. From left to right here, Japanese training barque Kaiwo Maru II, unidentified AmNav tugs, and SFFD fireboat Guardian. The AmNav tugs are either Independence (farther) and Patricia Ann (nearer).
Below is 1914 tug Eppleton Hall, seaworthy enough in 1970 to travel from the North Sea to San Francisco via the Panama Canal. For a foto of “Eppie” under way, click here. (I love the “save the Eppie” art, for the aesthetic of the late 1960s. Anyone know of a larger, more detailed version?)
Crowley Valor is bow escort for Vancouver Express into Seattle.
Foss Pacific Star awaits the signal to ease Cosco Antwerp off the pier, bound for sea.
Andrew Foss glides northbound toward bulker Tian Yu Feng.
Truckable tug Lynx stands by in Newcastle harbor.
Also behind the fence is YTB 779 Manhattan. When I thought to try to get a closer, unobstructed foto, I
saw another sign, clearly, that reiterated what I couldn’t quite read on that other sign.
First two fotos by Amy Bucciferro; all others by Will Van Dorp.
Not random but unrelated: at PortSide NewYork in Atlantic Basin on July 22 (830 pm), the movie Random Lunacy will be shown, featuring a transAtlantic crossing by Poppa Neutrino aboard Son of Town Hall. Read about Bonnie’s encounter on Jamaica Bay this weekend with a vessel made with parts of Son of Town Hall.
After a half year elapsed, the Piscataqua called me back. But before I show you two posts of new shots of Portsmouth harbor, can anyone identify this wreck over in the Sommerville Basin in Jamaica Bay, Queens? I don’t have an answer.
The Basin is located in the right side center of the chart between Far Rockaway and Silver Hole Marsh. Click on the chart below to make it interactive.
Now to Portsmouth, left to right: Eugenia Moran and Carly A. Turecamo (both from 1966).
OK, I couldn’t resist: an Auburn 866 Speedster just outside the Moran yard on Ceres Street.
As seen from the waterside, Mary M. Coppedge (1975) and then the two mentioned above.
Less than a mile away is the Portsmouth Navy Yard. Here YTB 771 Keokuk. Off Keokuk‘s stern is
YTL 602 Cocheco (1945). I cannot identify the quite modern tug facing Cocheco.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp, now in major gallivant mode. More Portsmouth tomorrow.
