Working in pairs

Sunday brought hot temperatures and light winds out of the East. The morning was marked by tugboats working in pairs, with a pair of tugs pulling and pushing a huge Weeks crane north, and a pair of Vames Brothers tugs also heading upstate light. Anchorages were filing up, with the Cape Henry and Stephen Reinauer joined by Patrice McCalister.

This large Weeks Marine crane had a tug towing…
And pushing as they headed north
A pair of Vames Brothers tugs head north running light
Patrice McAllister came up the River with a light barge on the line…
And anchored with it on the hip
Cape Henry and Stephen Reinauer remained anchored about a mile apart
FDNY Marine One’s Three Forty Three boat was back on the river
Farther north, a pair of motor boaters took a late afternoon dip in the shadow of the Palisades and the Englewood Cliffs monastery
