One thing you often see on the East River is plenty of boats on the water, includign Sail boats, Water taxies, Police craft and as I share in this post tugs.

You may wonder what it is pushing along the river so let me add a couple of more shots.

And here it is moving away from me, you can see these little tug Boats can push a good load, in this case I think it was returning with emty loads but they do push these large barges with quite substantial lods at times.

Incase you are wonderign where I got these shots from there in the back of the United Nations HQ Compound.

I have had a couple of shares on @steembasicincome for a while but have been remiss in adding more.

What is Steem Basic Income you may ask well here is how they explain it

Steem Basic Income is a social experiment to bring a basic income to as many Steemians as possible. Members join by sponsoring others into the program. Steem Basic Income is delivered through providing regular upvotes to member content. so I have decided to randomly send some Steem to add shares for some of my followers so today I sponsored the following people @eturnerx, @saffisara, @mineopoly, @melinda010100, @nolasco, @fiftysixnorth @dswigle, @gniksilvart and @ravenruis, all people I follow and regularly interact with.

These were just random selections that came to mind so please do not take offence if I didn't include you, maybe next week I will :)

Unless stated otherwise all photos used in my posts are taken and owned by myself, if you wish to use any of my images please contact me.

Tugboats are bad ass!


@still-observer They sure are and often ignored :)

That tugboat is so cute,love the vivid colors. I can't believe it is able to push such a large barge, and you say can even with a heavy load? Interesting. A beautiful day for photos! Enjoy the holiday @tatoodjay!

Love the little tugboats. They work so hard and don't often get attention. Nice photos, @tattoodjay!


@cecicastor Thanks and yes these workhorses of the water are often ignored

Thats pretty cool... im gonna be posting a lot of mustang photos haha


@deadgrlsuppastar Cool Looking forward to seeing them :)

i tried zooming in, not sure what it is sending though. 😁


@asianetwork I think the barges were empty for this trip

Worker bees of the all the boats. Nice photographs as always!


@supernovastaffy For sure and often ignored, thanks

As a child I loved tug boats @tattoodjay. Actually the closest I ever got to New York City was Newark, New Jersey. But this summer I will be in New York for a few hours. I will post the pictures I take from JFK then.

Thanks for including me on SBI, I will do the same for you^^

Keep cool


I have flown in and out of JFK so many times i have lost count enjoy your stopover there

Thnaks for SBI, its something I started ages ago and forgot all about going to make it w a weekly thing for a bit

The water train...boat with the coaches..👍


Good morning JJ... :)


@steemflow Good Morning have a great day

Oh, my! What vivid colors! Just beautiful! I love how the photo is composed (if there is such a thing). Like the last photograph... the three high-rise buildings at the back, and the tugboat right in the center. You take awesome photos! Thanks for sharing!
Happy 4th of July, my friend!

Tugboats, the unsung heroes of the sea! I love those guys, they are so tiny and unassuming but under the hood there is so much raw power!

Again, thanks for the sbi shares! Its in interesting project and the more i read about it the more I like the idea, and I especially like how much thought they put into making it a viable long term project!


@fiftysixnorth Unsung heroes for sure somehting most people barely notice or give any attention to

I think SBI has a lot of potential so I will see how it goes

That red tug boat is pretty powerful. I was just telling my son that it can pull a cruise ship as well when I saw your photo. Perfect timing!


@lymepoet the power of these little tugboats is pretty amazing isn't it
