My first fall shoot turned out to be very productive for 2 1/2 hours on the KVK. There were tugs, ships, barges, a buoy tender and more, a steady flow of traffic.

Moran has painted the “M” on the stacks of Gramma Lee and Laura K pink for Breast Cancer Awareness; and I was able to catch both of them.

All these photos but the last one were taken on Sept 24… Keep ship spotting, you never know what you will see!

Nice cool weather has helped in getting me out to do more shooting; today was no disappointment. Although the day started out slowly, and I did not see anything for about 15 minutes, then the KVK came alive. Along with the usuals, the National Parks Service “Liberty V” passed through the KVK probably headed for a repair yard. Vane Brothers now has a work launch, although not visible, I understand her name is Christian.

The RoRo Ruby Ace was headed for Port Newark, as was the Container ship Cape Melville. I’ve seen the last of Moran’s Catherine Turecamo, as she was, according to Tugboatinformation.com, sold to Calumet River Fleeting of Chicago, Illinois, and has been renamed to the John Marshal. Moran is expecting a new Tractor Tug as a replacement.
