And then January 16, 2014. The next few photos by Bjoern Kils, of NYMedia Boat.
Here was her sonar signature, as her exact location of sinking was marked. Photo from Bjoern.
A nameless salt sent in this photo.
And by early February 2014, the boat was brought back to the air . . . rise again. Photo below by Orlando Martinez.
March 2014, and the rehab had begun, if only the preliminaries to rehab. And a lifesaving award was granted.
During the summer, there were some articles like this one in Professional Mariner magazine.
And by November 2014, Sea Lion looked like this. Notice the funnel on the ground.
In February 2015, the funnel was in place and hull coatings applied.
By mid March, her externals looked ready to return to the water.
And then yesterday, about two weeks after she splashed back in, she was at work pushing a barge
through the Buttermilk Channel.
If you need a soundtrack, try this. Bravo, Sea Lion.

If you’re wanting to see the sixth boro, New York Media Boat is an excellent way to do it.
Here was the first in this series. The good news is that this past Saturday Sea Lion was raised. The first two images are credited to Tug Life at Henry Marine and Orlando Martinez.
Jon Harrison caught the next two over on the west side of Bergen Point . . . . It’s the crane barge Columbia and the raised tug gets moved over to Port Newark.
She’s up and now there’s a lot of rebuild work to do, but I suspect before summer, she’ll be working again.
Thanks much Tug Life Henry Marine, Orlando, and Jon.

Check out the light exactly two years ago . . . here. And my first greetings this morning came from the Easter ducks, who’d heard about an egg hunt, I believe. Mergansers passed too, but dove each time to hide bright colored bills.
Norwegian Gem, her bow painted like a post-modern Easter ovoid, sailed into a harbor entirely tinted with the rosy fingers of dawn, ending a passage from Cape Canaveral.
And two last beasts . . . unicorn and Oliphant . . . round out our marvelous menagerie
