Damn Dutch entered the harbor today; my last name authorizes me to use that adjective. And just kidding about it, of course. Welkom. My May post called “specialized 11” had a larger Big Lift ship. Would that be “bigger lift”?

Here’s the rest of the ship. See the whole fleet at this link; this vessel is Transporter, hence, tra-type, by their nomenclature.

A fun foto… suppose they could lift and haul away our V Bridge?

A question: last Wednesday afternoon, a vessel with large cranes went up river: a frustrated tugster needed to content himself with this shot from the 32 floor of a building on 42nd Street. The stack says CTL or GTL. Anyone identify, please? Doesn’t the Hudson look narrow in this shot? Anyone know what Transporter is going to pick up?
