Flinterborg update:  Confirmed departure time Oct 7 at 7 a.m. from Port of Albany, bound for sea.  That sounds like late morning  past the Rondout, mid-dayish through Poughkeepsie, and late afternoon (dusk?) through the sixth boro.  Advice:  Don’t trust me to calculate “boat/ship time.”   In spite of the rainy forecast, I’ll be at one or more locations.     Not simultaneously.

Seeing Odin today . . . my first sighting in a while . . . called me back to stacks.  Long periscopes peering from squared off stacks.

Taurus sports near-cones with pipes retracted within.

Bismarck Sea has similar ones, but they display the IMO.

Might Caribbean Sea‘s stack be too small to sport the logo?

I’d never noticed til now how far the pipes protrude from Maryland‘s.

Without something or someone beside them, it’s difficult to perceive how large the stacks on Lincoln Sea are.

Norwegian Sea, like Caribbean, has no logo on the stack, although the fleet colors tell all.

aak6nor

Java Sea‘s are dwarfed by the array of climbing superstructure.

aakjs

A K-Sea tanker?  Sorry.  I couldn’t resist when the components lined themselves up.
