I spent a quiet morning on the KVK this weekend, and caught a few neat photos, like the tug Neptune pushing the Great Lakes Dredge GL54.
Last week we watched Robert Burton racing; this week it was back at work on the KVK. While riding the SI Ferry, I was able to catch Don Jon’s huge Chesapeake 1000 raising a sunken barge in the upper bay.
Another tug we watched racing was Don Jon’s Meagan Ann, and she was photographed passing under the VZ Bridge at dusk.
Have a good week ship spotting. John Skelson.
I spent a few hours shooting this week and wondering who will win the Tugboat Races this year. There are quite a few large new boats in NY Harbor this year; will it be one of them?
I finally got a good photo of Sabine, a tug chartered to McAllister. I kept missing her or capturing in bad light. Also, photographed Pelham, Henry Marine’s tug, headed for the Tappan Zee project; and got Vane’s Red Hook.
This weekend will be a busy one with a Hidden Harbor Tour Saturday on Circle Line. The 22nd Annual North River Tugboat Race & Competition will be held on Sunday. Spectators can watch the race close-up on the Circle Line Spectator Boat. Activities start at 9:30. Competitions will also be held on Pier 84 (right next to Circle Line).
Hope to see everyone there!
