OK.  Did you get Sea Fox?  I had guessed Sea Wolf. There is no Sea Coyote.  Yet.

I didn’t get this one either.

I took the photo below of Wanderbird in May 2013, and I don’t know if it’s still for sale, but when I visited Belfast recently there was another

Closing shot . . .  Makulu heading for the sound via the East River this week.  In the late 90s and early 00s this ketch sailed around the world at least three times as an educational project.  It appears now she’s for sale or sold.  ??

How often do you see Bergen Point pushing a crane barge?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Or Sarah Ann pushing a scow past the Hospital for Special Surgery?
