After being away for a while, it was good to spend a couple of hours shooting on the KVK. It was a busy morning with some new or rarely seen tugs.

Helen Laraway, a tug operated by Coeyman’s Marine Towing, was a first-time sighting for me. Yemitzes, the rarely seen tug owned by Henry Marine, formerly, was the Pennsylvania RR Tug “Philadelphia”.

Margot appeared to be towing Frances to Tottenville. She was last seen by me very early one morning, when both tug were towing the USS Slater back to Albany. The usual McAllister, Reinauer, and Moran tugs, and a double-header of US Coast Guard vessels rounded out the mornings viewing. Click photos for a larger view.
