Buying in bulk

The dip down to freezing on Saturday was short-lived, with temperatures climbing back to just shy of 50 again on Sunday. River traffic remained moderately heavy, with the third bulker of the weekend coming through Sunday. The Reinauer Twins remained anchored off 110th Street for a third day.

The Genco Auvergne, a 625-foot long bulk ship was heading for Albany, arriving from Morocco after a stop in Maine. Auvergne looked high in the water, and a pick-up of scrap at Sims Metal seems a good guess, though we will see where she docks up north.

Saint Emilion passed us Friday on the way south with the Edwin Poling barge. That barge then went north Saturday with the Kimberly Poling. Sunday, Saint Emilion was heading north again with its usual A87 barge. The Evelyn Cutler tug remains offline, or at least off AIS.
Haugland Group’s Emma Rose, acquired by the company last year, came south from Haugland’s Tompkins Cove port with a deck barge, heading for the former Kinder Morgan terminal on the West Shore of Staten Island. The site is a brownfield being remediated and there have been reports that it is being considered for wind turbine assembly operations.
