|NORTH RIVER, a New York City "honeyboat," on the KVK Monday, 9 January 2006.
The New York City Department of Environmental Protection operates three tankers for the transport of "sludge." I don't think I want to know much more about their cargo -- among polite society on New York Harbor, these three are known collectively (and affectionately, I might add) as the "honeyboats."
NORTH RIVER was built by Maryland Shipbuilding and Drydock, 1974, 305-ft. Everyone agrees that whatever else they may have, the DEP's honeyboats have very handsome, classic lines.
