Just when I thought I had no more photos for another installment of “seats,” uh . .  more appear.  This arrangement of seating in this Erie Canal tug has to win a prize.  I can’t tell which lock it is, nor (I believe) can Bob Graham, who sent it in.  The captain on the Feeney at one point was Bob’s grandfather.

Is that a folding chair way high up on Augie?

January 2014

Might folding chairs be more common than one might expect?

Ceres has become inactive after a noble attempt to sail north Country produce down to the NYC markets.

Angels Share is the largest Wally yacht I’ve ever seen, the photo taken in North Cove in September 2013.

But the person on the helm got no seat, unless–you suppose?–they’ve got a folding chair in the lazaretto. It’s since been soldand renamed.

NYC-DEP Hunts Point has a variety of seating options.

And let’s end with two European boats:  Tenax and

Abeille Bourbon. Tenax has appeared on tugster in 2012 here, and Bourbon . . . here.

Many thanks to Xtian, Vlad, and Bob for sending along these photos.  Here are the two previous “seats” posts.

And a final shot below, that was tugster in 2011 at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum in Belle Isle at the helm of the detached house of SS William Clay Ford.  Note the “old man’s” chair in the background.

This foto, and some others here,  comes thanks to Xtian, who had a question about a model he’s building a few weeks ago.  I hope someone can help.   This drydock foto shows Abeille Liberté , which assisted in the salvage of MSC Napoli five years back.  I’m guessing this is irrelevant, but “abeille” is the French word for “bee,” as in … the critter that makes honey and stings.  This hull is nothing if not sweet yet efficient.  As of this writing, Abeille Liberté  is at the dock in Cherbourg.

I’m always looking for outatowners or “never-before-seen”s in the sixth boro.  C. Angelo 

fits that description.    Here’s what Birk and Harold  had to say about her.  I got this foto Sunday, and the turbine WAS spinning.

Back to Xtian fotos,  Marseillais 6 is Voith propulsion tug based in greater Marseille.

Abeille Flandre is based east of Marseille in Toulon.

Here’s another of the same size and mission:  Abeille Languedoc. As of this writing Abeille Languedoc is docked in Boulogne-sur-Mer, just west of the Calais/Dover crossing point in the Channel.

I believe that since this foto was taken, Tenax has lost these hues of blue–can I call one of them “cerulean”–for orange and white.  Here’s another blue shot, with sibling vessels.

Finally, from Xtian, Baltic Warrior–built in Poland West Germany* in 1964– towing a disabled Eleousa Trikoukiotisa to Malta, where she remains.  As of this writing, Baltic Warrior is docked in Ramsgate.  * means see Xtian’s comment.  Baltic Warrior was originally Bugsier 26;  here’s Bugsier (Hamburg)’s current fleet.

Back to my  fotos, this is a Kirbified Viking.

Amy C McAllister and McAllister Responder race out the toward the Narrows and beyond, as

does Buchanan 12.  Given that Buchanan 12 often pushes a half dozen or more stone scows, I’d could easily squint and tell myself she’s pushing Swinburne Island closer to New Jersey.

All fotos by either Herrou Xtian or Will Van Dorp.

Abeille International is a division of Boubon International. Here’s their fleet.
