Another soaker

Tuesday brought another day of soaking rains, with temperatures in the 40s and light winds, swinging around from northerly to southerly. The brand new MSC cruise ship Seascape remained at Pier 88 for a second day and will remain at least through Wednesday evening for a scheduled naming ceremony here. MSC is also celebrating commencement of year-round cruise service from New York City, though Seascape will be sailing from Miami and, in any event, MSC will be operating out of Brooklyn, not Pier 88 according to their press release. Meanwhile, the visiting Woods Hole-based Coast Guard cutter Tybee did leave its berth at the end of Pier 86 during the morning and headed for Sandy Hook Bay where they had anchored Tuesday evening.

Centerline’s HMS Liberty delivered a bunkering barges to MSC Seascape ahead of her departure for Miami later this week.
Vane Brothers Cape Fear brought a light barge back from the Buckeye terminal north of Newburgh at sunrise.
Reinauer’s Haggerty Girls followed, returning from Albany
DEP’s Rockaway was running with the morning flood tide into a north wind, heading for the North River plant.
