means all kinds of stuff, starting out with this.  Bowsprite took this foto Thursday.  Yes, that’s the VZ Bridge in the distance.  Not sure what be-flagged and hatted thing does in the foreground go!.


Not sure about this either, but it was fast.

Yes, I have heard of Theodore, but did you know the entire vessel is wood and fiberglass?  Kudos to Bowsprite, who refuses to draw it.  I’ve no clue why it made a short sixth boro stay.

I’ve never seen a four-pontooner before, like this.

Since i’m being flip and opinionated today . . .  let’s me share my sense that the bow of a light container vessel is not a pretty thing!

Twisted Sisters has arrived to fish!  I’m wondering if that means that some

sort of  season begins 1 November?

Isn’t the house profile on this tanker unusual?

Maersk Murotsu entered service in 2010, so she is quite new, and her raked house and plumb bow are unusual.  Does it translate into

increased speed?  This PDF from the Onomichi Dockyard builders call this a Shin-kurushima knuckle-shaped bow, an energy saver.

As she left the KVK and the sixth boro the other day, crew on the bridge wing plotted a course for Aruba.

Thanks to Bowsprite for the fauxtug fotos;  all others by Will Van Dorp.
