Hello Malcolm, the late-great Curtis Bay Towing Company of Virginia tug CEDAR POINT is alongside. The CP was built in Orange, TX in 1949 as the MOIRA MORAN, working her entire Moran life in NY Harbor as a front-line ship docking tug. As new tugs were added to the fleet, she was handed down the coast to the Curtis Bay operation in Norfolk. She came to my fleet in Philadelphia in the late 80's. She was one of 5 identical sisters, of which two were sold foreign in the 50's and may still be around. Of the three that remained in the Moran fleets, the LAMBERT POINT, ex-BARBARA MORAN and the CAROL MORAN were sunk as reefs off the New Jersey coast and the CP was scrapped in Port Newark, NJ in 2003. Thanks for posting all these great views!
