Unrelated:  Have you ever heard of a fleet–a vital US government fleet–with NO ships?  Details at end of post.

I’d never blogged about this docking although I took these fotos of back about five years ago.  With almost-twin McAllisters (Responder and Charles) just beyond her wingtips,

Eagle glided eastbound on the East (could be misspelled as “Easy”) River ,

and overseen by an unidentified  65′ WYTL (Hawser?),

Charles D. approaches the stern as

as lines are made ready and then

hauled back in

Charles D assists.

Communication is vital as all those linehandlers get coordinated with

twelve hands working these wheels simultaneously.

Responder attends to the bow and all

lines are made fast.

and the wheels go unattended, hands down.

All fotos taken long ago (2005) by Will Van Dorp, and posted now inspired by bowsprite’s Escanaba post and Flickrstream.  And speaking of Flickrstream, check out this USCG photostream.

The US 10th Fleet has NO-ZERO-AUCUN ships.  Learn its mission here.
