Blazing heat prevailed on Sunday, with light winds out of the south. Recreational activity was most notable early, while things were still cool. Commercial activity was typical for a Sunday. Another escorted swimmer came through in the morning, with its accompanying powerboat flying an “I” flag.
The tug Rhea Bouchard anchored off 72nd Street with an empty barge. The Bouchard Towing Company is out of business and the tug is owned under new ownership but apparently retains this name.
