Wow . . . it’s been six years exactly since I last used this title. Here’s Friday morning before work, and
by Saturday Mare Pacific has moved to the deepwater anchorage until the flood spins her outbound.
Noises of heavy chain directed my attention here, and I noticed the angle and scope had changed.
Exhaust from the stack and swirls out behind the wheel caused these developments and
then . . . as chain rattled, this weighing was not unexpected.
Nor was this rinse water to dislodge
clods of sixth boro bottom.
With no perceptible engine noise (I was about a quarter mile away), Mare Pacific eased out, if only to re-anchor and hang with Silver Soul, High Enterprise, and others off Long Beach, NY. Where she will load her next lake of rock juice remains to be seen. See her previous stops here.
