Weekend warriors

The weekend brought pleasant weather with temperatures in the 40s and occasional periods of gusty wind. River traffic seemed rather light. By the end of the weekend Vane’s Pokamoke and Gracie Reinauer were anchored off the Upper West Side.

Vane’s Elk River came south past the Palisades Friday afternoon, and spent the remainder of the weekend moving around the Harbor.
A Reinauer ATB was also returning to the Harbor as the sun set Friday
Saturday morning saw Vane’s Fort Schulyer heading north with cargo
Dann’s Treasure Coast came down from the Lafarge plant in Ravenna NY with a loaded cement barge, heading for the Bayonne cement terminal
By Sunday afternoon, Treasure was transiting Hell Gate en route to Lafarge’s College Point terminal in Flushing
Janice Ann Reinauer was also transiting Hell Gate Sunday afternoon, en route to Providence with a cargo
Coming the other way returning from Port Jefferson was Vane’s Brooklyn, a smaller tug not seen on the North River, with her smaller size perhaps making her better suited for these North Shore runs.
Pocomoke was anchored on the River Sunday morning
Gracie M. Reinauer was a bit further north
Similar to last weekend, Buchanan 12 came south without its usual retinue of hopper barges, but this time heading for the Caddell Drydock on Staten Island, perhaps in need of some work.
This survey vessel came up the North River pinging AIS as Half Moon but no further information was available. By Sunday, Half Moon appeared to be doing survey work on the East River, between the UN and Gantry Plaza Park.
One of two large FDNY fireboats, the Three Forty Three, made a loop up the River on Saturday.
NJ State Police’s Jersey City-based boat was also on patrol Saturday
Someone got birthday wishes on Sunday
Kayakers and paddle boarders enjoyed the warm weather Saturday
