One type of post that has evolved here is Whatzit? Know what this juxtaposition of hardware and jungle might be?
One of the many joys watching traffic at the Miraflores lock was getting new perspective on these vessels. Just a few weeks back I caught sister ship Bow Chain in the KVK, but from the platforms allowed me, I could not see above deck much.
If you return to the top foto here, you’ll see the green bow of this vessel–Ever Dynamic–sharing the Miraflores locks with Bow Summer.

Tying the recent Nola visit and this post together, click here for a tugster post from over five years ago. S/R Wilmington was one of the first ships I got upclose fotos of; she was built in Avondale, LA, and has recently been scrapped. A related vessel currently called Oriental Nicety is also bound for the scrappers; Nicety‘s previous names have been as follows: Dong Fang Ocean, Mediterranean, SeaRiver Mediterranean, and last but not least . . . . Exxon Valdez.
