Renamed, and On a Mission

So now the I Lift NY, ours in name, too, is on a mission — get here safely, and then the work begins. Re renaming, William Van Dorp posted yesterday in tugster: a waterblog, “Meanwhile, I’d like to propose some alternatives . . . Hudson River Hoister and Tappan Zee Titan are more local and maintain the same LCL (less-container-load) pattern.”

The I Lift NY, escorted by tugboats Lauren Foss and Iver Foss, continues its journey to the Hudson Valley/Courtesy Panama Canal Authority and Fluor Enterprises, Inc.

As to when we’ll see it in the Hudson River, Van Dorp continued, “Keep in mind that once the tow clears the Atlantic side locks, it’s still more than 2000 nautical miles from the Narrows. Assuming an average speed of seven knots and no delays for weather or other causes, that’s still almost two weeks. So, I’ll wager ETA at the Narrows around February 1.”

You can follow the Lauren Foss here, and the Iver Foss here.

I’d like to know what you think.
