Drying out

Clearer skies and warmer weather arrived Thursday, and so did Norwegian Gem, returning from the Caribbean. A Vames Brothers tug arrived with a fuel barge for bunkering, and then the Gem was on her way again by sundown, heading back towards San Juan.

The tugboat Frances came through from Albany, heading for Tottenville.

Mackenzie Rose which, like Mister Jim, is owned by the Port of Coeymans (Coeymans Marine Towing), was on the way back home pushing a number of barges against the ebb tide, one of which appeared to be loaded with dirt or excavated fill. She was overtaken by Kimberly Polling returning from New Haven with an empty barge. The Kimberly would go on to anchor further up the river, a bit north of the Teresa. A Waterway ferry leaving Port Imperial maneuvered to pass behind the barges.

Janice Ann Reinauer came through with a barge loaded at the Bayway Refinery in Linden heading for Albany.
