I’ve held off moving from 99 to 100 because 100 suggested I do something special, but ultimately, I decided that random means random, so here it is. Guess the location if not the tug? It IS sixth boro. Answer at the end of the post.
Almost 30-year-old Franklin Reinauer entered the Narrows light as Sun Right departed the other day.
Less than an hour earlier, Emerald Coast (1973) overtook the same Sun Right at the turn around Bergen Point. I’ve seen Sun Round recently (although I didn’t take a foto) here but not Sun Road. Are there more in this Manila-registered series?
Note the small tug assisting with Energy 11105 barge . . .
Susan Miller (1981) meets Akinada Bridge –named for a Hiroshima bridge–at the Narrows recently.
Coho lighters G. Agamemnon. Has repainting started on any of the ex-Penn boats?
Comet (1977) heads under the Bayonne Bridge, while (?) Brian Nicholas following.
Atlantic Salvor (1976) followed Atlantic Coast (2007) into the sixth boro the other day.
Resolute (1975) escorted in Americas Spirit.

Unrelated: Does anyone know if and when Athena was scrapped?
The body language is clear: “Touchdown.” The surroundings and uniform, however, are way wrong.
Pull back a little and
. .. yup . . . definitely not football or rugby. It’s Sun Right leaving town for the Panama Canal around 11:30 today.
Watch her make the swing at Bergen Point leveraged by Ellen McAllister at the bow and Marjorie B McAllister near the stern.
She ran the distance from the goal posts at Bayonne Bridge to those at the Narrows in about 55 minutes, and after that
no potential tacklers had
any chance of catching her. Now it’s a straight shot . . . about 2000 nautical miles, translating to about four days.
