Anyone know the story of this lobster tug over at Pier 81 Hudson River?  Its current name?

 

Discovery Coast was standing by a tank barge at Pier 8 Red Hook.

 

Next pier south, Pier 9, Evening Tide hibernates. I guess it’s not true that all parts of “time and tide wait for no one.”

Continuing in that direction to the south of Erie Basin, a Dann Ocean fleet waits:  l to r, Captain Willie Landers, Sarah Dann, and Ruby M.

In the anchorage, Susan Rose awaits her next appointment with the RCM 250.

Fells Point heads to the Narrows to retrieve her bunker barge.

Bruce A. McAllister escorts bulker Thor Fortune into Claremont for a load of scrap.

And finally, Everly Mist is the newest renaming I’ve seen.  Ellen S. Bouchard has also been renamed Jeffrey S, but I’ve not caught a photo yet.

 

All photos, WVD.

I’ve compartmentalized my photos from the Pioneer sail the other night, in part because in a short two-hour sail there was so much to see.  For starters, Stephanie Dann had earlier just rushed eastward and came back with Cornucopia Destiny, a dance partner on her starboard side.  I can speculate about this, but I don’t know the details.

As we headed into the Buttermilk, we met Susan Rose AND

Jordan Rose, ex- Evening Breeze and Evening Star, respectively.

This sweet downeaster passed.

I suspect Jordan came along to assist 

Susan into the notch.

Meanwhile, a ways down the piers, Stasinos Jimmy and currently still Evening Tide were rafted up for the moment.

Whatever brought Jordan to the Red Hook piers, by the time we had sailed passed the gantries, she was overtaking us.

On the return, as night began to fall, we met Thomas D. Witte and

then her fleetmate Douglas J.

At this point, my photos were pixelating, but I still managed to get Eastern Dawn, heading back to the “barn” at dusk.

All photos, WVD, who has handed the keys to the tower over to the robots again for a while.
