Will Van Dorp – Tugster – A Horn Blows in Brooklyn

Por |septiembre 5th, 2020|

Horns , , , well, actually, more than one.

But can you identify this one below, which awed me?

Joel–over 6 feet tall– gave permission to use this foto,

in which he serves a “scale model.”

Considering the size of this horn, what is its origin?

Answer follows.

<<<

For the record,

I asked Joel to show how “awed” he was;

he may have heard my garbled request

in a very noisy powerhouse as “odd” instead.

Por |agosto 2nd, 2020|

The Canal has likely been called lots of things,

but exotic might never have been used.

But I would argue that it is just exactly that.

Will Van Dorp – Sand-running tug and barge keep the concrete flowing in NYC

Por |agosto 3rd, 2019|

<<<

Without standard clean sand, you can’t create the universal building material, concrete.

And with the scale of construction in any large city — any “concrete jungle” — the appetite for sand is immense.

New York City is no exception. While New York Sand & Stone (NYS&S) has the reputation as “the city quarry,”

the real source for its sand is Salem, N.J., a small port on Delaware Bay 30 hours away by boat.

The tugboat Daisy Mae and barge CMT Y NOT 2 move sand thousands of tons at a time.

One tug, one barge and a crew of five can transport the equivalent of hundreds of dump-truck loads.
