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.

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.
