Here’s a follow-up to the Hayes post I did a little over a month back.  Recently I caught up

with the specialized Hayes heading north across the Upper Bay, moving after pinning itself to the bottom

on one spud, which I’d not foto’d.

Check out the rack the spud rides on.

When I look at Hayes and squint, I imagine a larger version of what might soon emerge from the egg case frogma discovered in her garden.  Hmm?  All fotos here by Will Van Dorp.

Moving from big feet to big sterns, check out the latest from Henry, still, still in Amsterdam, soon to depart for Cathay.

Research vessel Robert E. Hayes gets up on all three sometimes.  Technically, it’s called a liftboat.  I saw Hayes up on all three spuds last year on the Passaic just downstream from Newark.   Thanks to YouTube, you can see it too.

I took these shots last summer in the KVK.

Another liftboat Russell W. Peterson came ashore in a storm on Bethany Beach in Delaware.  See Peterson wallow in the surf here.

To see a much larger liftboat, check out Resolution on shipoftheday blog.  It’s a  spudded vessel designed and built specifically to install coastal wind turbines.
