Hats off to the small boats that work all year round . . . crew boats,
more fishing boats,
more crew boats,
more —soon to face major cuts--government boats
more line and boom boats,
and here’s a special . . . a historic life boat, long atop Binghamton, which is still intact as far as I know, and a bit longer ago had
guys in hazmat suits doing the last ever lifeboat drill aboard the 112-year-old condemned ferry.
And finally, of course there’s the New York Media Boat.

Rosemary Miller ? (center) meets Torm Aslaug, which triggered today’s series.
Sand Master and sand mining barge nearly spans the Narrows.
Tanker Cape Tallin heads for the anchorage, passing the tops of the towers of Marine Parkway.
Here’s the foto that started the series. notice two grayish shapes forward of the bow of Torm Aslug? I could see them all the way from the top of a bridge on the Belt Parkway.
Here, as seen from Mount Mitchill, the highest headland on the east coast south of Maine . . . you can see the same two vessels–MSC by the color of their stacks–and McAllister Responder.
East of her . . . I don’t know, but my guess would be a T-AOE.
Any guess on the viewpoint of Manhattan with Hood Island departing back south for more tropical fruit?
It’s taken from the same ridge at Sandy Hook, looking down across the still closed Sandy Hook National Park area.
