This week Gramma Lee T Moran sailed out of NY Harbor for the last time heading for her new assignment in the Port of Miami.

She was built in 2002, by Washburn and Doughty of East Boothbay, Maine, and has served NY until now. She is named in honor of Lee Tregurtha, wife of Moran’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, Paul Tregurtha. She is rated at 5,100 hp powered by 2 diesels driving “Z” drives.

Gramma has been replaced with a new 6,000 hp tug, Kirby Moran, and will be appearing here as soon as I get some photos of her.

No shipping activity down here this year… so I am featuring photos from Working Harbor Committee’s Staten Island tours from the past.

This coming Sunday July 26, there will be a brand new WHC Hidden Harbor Tour featuring the History of Staten Island’s Waterfront, hope you all can make it.
