    Holy crap, that tugboat is awesome!! I bet I know why it’s painted that way — to make it really stand out in a crowd of large ships, so nothing bumps into it, crosses lines with it, or pitch-poles it by accident, especially in fog.

    I bet I know why it’s painted that way —

    it’s plan B in the the dirty fuck’n hippies failed efforts to resurrect kesey’s psychedelic bus.

    Oddly enough, the tug is the “Hackensack”, which is really not a name that I would associate with psychedlia.

    Maybe if it had been “Hackysack”…

    These pictures are wonderful. It’s great that there’s a crewman in the ‘Spirit of New York’ and that bright cable in the foreground.
    Apparently Hackensack is owned by Intrepid Sea*Air*Space Museum. Hence the unusual paint job.

    Thanks, Drano!

    I’m, uh, not entirely sure I follow the logic on the paint job. Although I had the sense that it was not a standard working tug (the canoes in the back, f’rinstance…).
