Check the bow wave off this outbound container ship about a half mile off from the camera;  compare the wave to the height of a single container. This ship hasn’t even passed through the Narrows yet, and it’s doing 15 knots, I’d wager.  Check here to see it in home waters.

Minutes later we pitched through the six-foot waves in CSCL Ningbo’s wake as well.   Port of registry is Hong Kong, which until a few years ago was considered by several measures to be the busiest port in the world.  But Ningbo is named for a major Chinese port city south of Shanghai;  Ningbo and Shanghai will soon be linked by the world’s largest trans-oceanic bridge to be completed in 2008.  Verrazano will seem small in comparison.
