A pair of deckhands ride the huge pair of knees on Discovery Coast.
… moved by a pair of Dann Marine newcomers, Chesapeake Coast and Discovery Coast with Seto Express on the far side.
A lucky pair of Finns no doubt see the yellow Stolt tanker in the distance as an angel. I took the foto of Stolt Invention four days ago as it entered the sixth boro in the afternoon fog. From Rick Old Salt’s blog today I learn that on May 10 . . . less than two weeks ago, Stolt Invention saved the lucky pair in mid-Atlantic after their sailboat began taking on water.

Interesting but completely unrelated: coal dredging on the Susquehanna? Check this out of Bone In Its Teeth blog.
Also unrelated inquiry: Does anyone remember/have fotos of the heavylift ship in NYC harbor 1997 taking away the floating jail Resolution? I’d love to see fotos.
Tugboats in the sixth boro of New York City vary not quite infinitely, but almost. Consider Pegasus (1907), here with Lehigh Valley 79 (1914) alongside. And my social medium tells me they’re about to link up and travel again soon. Watch Pier 25.
Rounding it all out . . . is JoAnne Reinauer III (1970), here passing the unmistakeable Torm-orange house of Torm Thames (2005), and see this spotlight by selfabsorbedboomer.
Having called this set almost infinitely varied, I must say there’s NOTHING operating in the sixth boro quite an unusual as Joseph Thompson Jr. (portions from 1944), the tug portion of an ATM unit currently working the North Coast between US and Canadian ports. Thank’s to Isaac Pennock aka tugboathunter for introducing me to this vessel; For the dizzying set of transformations, read the bio by boatnerd here . . . and follow the fotos, especially the ones by Mark Vander Meulen, Steve Hause, Lee Rowe, and Rod Burdick.

I did this post just over a year ago; note the prominent change happening in the Manhattan skyline, as seen from the north coast of Rockaway Queens. The last time you saw the tug shown here was December 2011. Any guesses what Patty was towing yesterday? Answer tomorrow.
Unrelated: Following their own landmarks, a new crop of aeons-old silvery slime has reportedly returned to sixth boro waterways. What . . . you ask? Click here.

Coral Coast (1970, 3000 hp)
I took this foto at 15:40 yesterday, and I’ll call it “prelude to afternoon golden hour,” but this is a view of the turbine from the Battery Park direction. A few weeks ago, I recorded 18 minutes, so here’s more than twice that.
But first, bowsprite’s talked about her online art store for some time, and yesterday . . . officially, she launched it. Please traffic it. I wouldn’t want her till to look like the one I found along the KVK yesterday. See the jam-packed cash drawer below. Come spring it might be full of green.
I love it when traffic in the KVK is dense: here (l. to r.) Mediterranean Sea, Siberian Sea (?), Margaret Moran, and Cosco Tianjin. In the distance is Robbins Reef Light and the old Williamsburgh Savings Bank tower in Brooklyn.
With traffic this heavy, I can see bowsprite will be very busy drawing and sketching while the robots staff the store. Or maybe she could have robotos out sketching while she keeps the rust off her cash register?

This short dozen tugboats chosen because they passed on a given part of a morning recently differ in size, age, tasks, and number of fleet siblings. Less visible are their differing histories and crews.
Laura K Moran, 2008 built in Maine 87′ loa and 5100 hp here escorting in Ever Devote. Below her is Caitlin Ann, built in Louisiana in 1961. 70′ loa and 2400 hp.
Vane’s Bohemia and Quantico Creek differ in many respects: 2007 v. 2010, 4200 v. 3000, Louisiana v. Maryland, and 96′ v. 90′ loa.
Below them, escorting Dubai Express, is James Turecamo, 1969 built in NY, 92′ loa and 2000 hp.
Below her is Barbara McAllister, 1969 built in Louisiana, 100 loa and 4000 hp.
Margaret Moran, shown twice escorting Cosco Tianjin, 1979 built in Louisiana, 99′ loa and 3000 hp.
Two former SeaBoats tugs are now Mediterranean Sea and Weddell Sea, both built in Massachusetts and powered by 4500 hp. Mediterranean Sea (110′ loa) was launched in 2004; Weddell Sea (105′ loa) launched 2007.
Late first snow this season unless you count the few flurries over the sixth boro last October, but flakes did obscure vision this morning. Of course, Cheyenne is always recognizeable and busy, but Arabian Sea (in green) I had to guess at.
But I was looking for a good 10 minutes at this right in front of me and did not even SEE it. No, not Sanko Blossom, but that new feature beyond her . . . that light colored structure obscured
It’s good for my self-confidence that I saw the tower yesterday also, and got fotos of the 260′ tower then, over beyond Hanjin Albany. Otherwise I might have suspected it came with the storm. The blades weren’t turning, though, in spite of the wind, since it won’t go operational for a month or so yet.
Maria J. Turecamo (1968) and Hercules (1961), side by side, and my psychic tells me Hercules may be about to set out on a long cold journey, over water. Given the name, I’m inclined to wonder what Hercules 12 labors were/are and where on that list this journey fits.

So concludes this series . . . with total time elapsed from Qatar nosing around Bergen Point until Suez Canal Bridge‘s stern clearing the west side of the Bayonne Bridge . . . about 50 minutes. Furthermore, a fourth vessel–Seatrout–traversed in that same time period, as did RTC 135, moved by Nicole Leigh Reinauer.
So while you’re enjoying –I hope–these fotos, let me do some math. Using deadweight tonnage info available in that magic library called the internet, I total the cargo capacity of these four ships and one barge as . . . 223,157 tons. And I’ll assume (just an assumption for sake of discussion) that each of these vessels was at its peak capacity.
And if you’re wondering why none of these fotos were taken by the new camera, I was lugging it, but it confounded me by moving one of its own buttons and not working until I got home.
