The Italian navy destroyer Caio Duilio has been visiting New York City, tied up at Pier 88 after participating in NATO exercises in the North Atlantic. She departed Thursday morning, with some help from two Moran tugs.
The bulker Aruna Berk passed by as the Duilio was getting underway, having discharged its cargo of gypsum in Buchanan last week (see Wind and Wallboard).
The super yacht Lunasea remains anchored off 79th Street. The Yacht has multiple tenders for retrieving passengers and supplies from on shore, including this open one tied up on the stern.
Buchanan12 was making its daily gravel delivery from the Clinton Point Tilcon quarry. I continue to be periodically amazed by both the seemingly endless supply of rock in that location and the insatiable demand for the product down here. Meanwhile, Coeymans Marine Towing’s Daisy Mae was bringing sand, a key cement ingredient probably mined in South Jersey, home to Coeymans. The Tugster blog had a good article on this trade several years ago: https://tugster.wordpress.com/2019/08/02/daisy-mae/
