For GHP&W 10, let’s gallivant over to the West Coast and look at some photos there by Glen, who moved to the Columbia watershed after a long career working on sixth boro waterways.

Let’s start out with Shaver’s Washington.  Notice anything unusual about this photo?  Answer at the end of the post.

McAllister Responder’ s name alludes to its former role as an oil-spill response vessel.

Until 2009, the Florida-built vessel was immediately distinguishable from Charles D. McAllister by her boom spool.

Magothy is a Patapsco-class 4200 hp vessel launched in 2008.

Hornbeck Tidewater equipment seems less frequent in the sixth boro these days, but last weekend I caught

Gulf Service and

Huron Service, 1979 and ’81 respectively.   Astern is the unmistakeable Atlantic Salvor, itself a former Tidewater boat.
