Let me interrupt my “out of the bayou” aka “regular programming” posts to a) announce my return to the sixth boro and b) update you on some exciting cargo that arrived in the sixth boro earlier this week.  For the first 4 photos, I’m grateful to Benjamin Moll, since I had not yet returned here when he took those.

But first, do you remember 20 Barges, the post about a delivery of that many barges on a barge in June 2016?  This is similar. Tradewinds’ Caitlin came into the sixth boro with barge Prometheus, seen below.   Prometheus is a large 300′ x 100′ barge that came to the sixth boro at least once before and reported on here, back in spring 2019.

Two tugs also tagged along as cargo.

 

Eastern Dawn provided the assist.

I took the rest of these photos.  By the way, as of today’s posting, Caitlin and Prometheus are still in town, over by the Weeks yard.

The new vessels will operate for the Haughland Group. More on Haughland tomorrow before I return to my Gulf of Mexico reporting.

Sarah D was assisting over at Weeks yesterday.

 

Many thanks to Ben for sharing his photos. Some previous posts with Ben’s photos can be seen here.

Any errors can be pinned on WVD, who provided the last four photos.

 

I missed her here five years ago, just barely.  At that time, she was delivering TZ Bridge construction components, more of which arrived a month later here.

Given her rare appearance in the sixth boro, I thought to get photos of her with some iconic parts of NYC skyline,

including Hudson Yards and the Edge.  But what vessel might Miss Lis have spent a two-week voyage delivering?

Eh voila!  So given the size and carrying capacity of this barge, I’m wondered what it came up here for.

I’d chosen my location well, since the tug spun off the wire and did the evolution off alongside the far side right in front of me.  Over beyond the dock, notice the big pink ULCV?  She’s now left the western hemisphere for a couple months.

As of posting, Miss Lis is over by the Global Terminal.

All photos and observations by Will Van Dorp, whose previous posts of Tradewinds Towing can be seen here.

And while we’re at exotics, has anyone gotten a photo of Dina Polaris, currently working “just-over-the-horizon” from Jones Beach?  I’d love to see and post some photos.

Prometheus appeared here once before, but that was a different Prometheus.
