With apologies all around . .. I am tardy in posting some of the photos I enjoy getting from you all readers. Tardiness . . . my only argument is that I am very busy with projects that will come out at some point.
Like this one that Ted M sent in response to my Turmoil post some weeks ago. Jason Reinauer is towing Turmoil–an older iteration– astern. I believe I saw Acadian Freedom in Chelsea last year, but don’t have a photo to prove it. Here’s what I did put up from that reconnoitre.
And thanks to Jed, here’s Pearl Coast, taken recently, and
Pati R Moran, taken not so recently.
I once had photos of the green boat below and below, but I think I deleted them out of frustration of NOT being able to determine its history. It stood here in the Brooklyn Navy Yard for a while, but scuttlebutt is that it has been scrapped. These next four photos come thanks to Paul Strubeck, busy with projects of his own.
Can anyone fill in any of the blanks as related to this green boat?
Paul also made a trip around part of Lake Michigan recently and took these photos in Green Bay–GL Texas and North Dakota—
and below the bow of Stewart J. Cort, my guess is Minnesota and Oklahoma. The GL tugs are really amazing, with combined thousands of years of work. As to Cort, she’s back at work, bow that the Great Lakes has reawakened.
Thanks again to Ted, Jed, Paul, and the Maraki crew for these photos. how does the French saying . . . (mien vast hard due jambs. eh?) Wow, that’s what autocorrect did with my foreign language. I’ll try again: Mieux vaut tard que jamais.
I don’t care that it’s February, but the number of subsequent days with temperatures over 50 degrees in the sixth bor0 tells me it is spring–or has been.
Notice the difference between Severn and Fort Schuyler? Here proximity highlights the difference in height of the upper wheelhouse,
but Severn is of the 4200 hp class and fort Schuyler, the 3000.
Ah, the line and boom boats.
Joan is one of the Moran “giraffe” boats and see HR Otter?
She reminds me of the long gone Odin.
Here’s a closer-up of the HR Otter, a name that immediately conjures up Kenneth Grahame.
Some different pairs are possible here, and they’d be the same.
See the pair there?
a pair of hands. Is there a word for the painted design centered on the bow of some vessels, like figureheads but not?
Hope they clap for mardi gras!

The name of this 2011 tanker alone captures the imagination. Many years ago in Kuwait I saw another tanker by this name, but spelled Termoil.
When Turmoil started to move, it appeared
she was down by the head, but
I’m supposing this was only an illusion.
I saw this superstructure design once before on Maersk Murotsu here . . . scroll.
All photos by Will Van Dorp, who notices that Turmoil is, as of this writing, in the anchorage off Long Beach NY. I’d be nervous if Turmoil anchored beside me, whether it be a tanker or a yacht.
