Photo Of The Week – 3/1/10

Not fit for man nor beast (just mariners and seagulls): in heavy snow, the Jean/Mary(?) Turecamo* passes The Battery southbound with the barge Portsmouth on a short wire. *This is a correction after the tug was  initially misidentified as the Sheila Moran.


  1. The tug towing the PORTSMOUTH is not the SHEILA MORAN. This is the JEAN TURECAMO ex- TEXACO TAMPA, STAR TAMPA, DOLPHIN built in 1975 by Matton Shipyard, Cohoes, N.Y.

  2. Looks like the Mary or Joan.

  3. alice told me she loves this weather although she’s neither man, beast, mariner, or seagull. i’m with alice.

  4. That is the Jean, the Joan has the barge Bridgeport
