A large vessel that was parked at various spots in the Hudson for several days this month was apparently working on an electrical cable under the river, according to a site that tracks ships in the river.
The Ariadne, an offshore support vessel, was working on a subsea electrical cable, according to the Tugster blog. A site called vesselfinder that tracks the position of ships showed the vessel mvoing around the Hudson over the past week or so, sometimes at 68th Street sometimes farther North. Vesselfinder showed Ariadne back at a New Jersey dock as of Wednesday morning.
Ships were also seen earlier this year repairing an underwater cable in the Hudson.
