City boats

Cool temperatures and cloudy skies prevailed on the second official day of summer, with rain arriving in the late afternoon. Observed commercial traffic was light but government owned boats were more prevalent.

Buchanan12, observed back on the Clinton Point run yesterday after a hiatus, came through with a load of quarry output headed for the Greenville moorings in the morning, and came back with empties at the end of the day after also paying a visit to the Lafarge Brooklyn dock.
Coral Coast made a slow loop up the river with an empty cement barge but then returned to the Lafarge Bayonne terminal
An NYPD 45’ boat headed for the GW Bridge, overtaking the DEP’s Red Hook tanker on its way to the North River sewage plant
The NYPD was followed by another official looking boat…
…and then by a Coast Guard response boat…
…and then by Marine One’s large fireboat…
…and then by the NYC DEP’s water quality sampling vessel the Osprey. What were they all doing up there?
