Behold the Atlantics  . . . being A Salvor with the dump scow Witte 4003  and

A Enterprise . . . with the Chesapeake 1000. It’s delightful to see them now as twins, which they are, but hadn’t appeared to be.  Before we move to the next pictures, though, what are the “poles” beyond the dump scow?

The ridge is the highlands of Monmouth County above with West Bank Light below.

Mary Alice and Atlantic Salvor have been shuttling quite a few dump scows the past few weeks, it seems.

 

Caitlin Ann–which I first saw as Vivian L. Roehrig and later as Caribbean Sea— followed Enterprise in.

Different day, different towing arrangement . . . Atlantic Salvor returns with a light dump scow Weeks 258.

Caitlin Ann heads under the Bayonne Bridge, past its dismantled piers.

And the “poles” belong to  L/B Vision coming into the harbor with

her 95′ spindly spuds.

Finally . . . Atlantic Enterprise and I get close-up, and it’s appropriate that it should happen over by Bergen Point, where I had an encounter with Atlantic Salvor so many years ago.

When I heard VTS mention her on the VHF, I was hoping she was light or towing on the wire.  No matter, with zoom I was able to get acceptable photos for now.

Atlantic Salvor these days appears to be in Mobile, after having done some post-Maria clean-up in Puerto Rico.

Enterprise has been operating on a dredging project near the mouth of the Connecticut River.  More on that tomorrow.

After the turn, she heads north into Newark Bay to the Donjon homeport with Witte 4003.
