No . . . Joan Turecamo has not been re-cast as a government boat, but what about that small craft off her port?
Yup . . Coast Guard, maybe off a larger USCG vessel in port. A cold weather drill?
But here’s the real treat , USCGC Gallatin aka WHEC-721.
Note the dusting of snow from Athena post-Sandy.
Gallatin measures 378′ loa x 43′ . . . ie, 8.8:1 . . . skinny and fast.
I’m not sure what’s being transferred here, but it’s a welcome return for me of Shelby Rose, the bright blue and yellow tug.
Since it’s been so long since I’ve seen Shelby Rose–certainly NOT a government boat- here’s another shot.

Unrelated question: both yesterday and todayI saw folks wearing Smit apparel working in lower Manhattan. Anyone know who brought Smit into the “unwatering” and cleanup?
