Note that I had to retitle yesterday’s post, because I had posted a “seven seas 2″ two years ago already. A conversation this week prompts yesterday’s and today’s post: the K-Sea fleet in the sixth boro has been changing since their acquisition by Kirby last year. But as Isaac Asimov and Heraclitus each in his own way said . . . shift happens. For example, twenty years ago there was no K-Sea. It emerged in 1993 out of Eklof, which had existed in the harbor since 1910. In 2008, K-Sea itself absorbed Roehrig.
Anyhow, I decided to see what K-Sea units I’ve taken fotos of in the past half year, and here they are. Big caveat . . . I’m not out there around the sixth boro every day or even most days AND I don’t foto everything I see. A webcam might do that, but although my interest is documenting, I value an attempt at aesthetic pleasure as well, and webcams can’t do that.
So here goes: Lincoln Sea departed here yesterday, but no foto. Jan 8 . . . Norwegian Sea
and Baltic Sea, this morning . . . docked along Badagry Creek, Lagos.
Again, I’m making no claims that these are the only K-Sea boats around . . . just that these are the ones I’ve taken fotos of in the past half year. A quick search on AIS today shows Inland Sea and Houma in Philly; Odin, North Sea, and Volunteer around the Gulf of Mexico, and all others . . . maybe . . at sea.
