Meet Amavisti. I took the foto over in the Buttermilk yesterday. Here’s why I call this post “doing social.” It was reported that Iona McAllister towed Amavisti into the sixth boro last Saturday after the ship had experienced loss of power some hundred miles out. Did anyone get a foto of Amavisti under tow and be willing to share it, i.e. do what social media allows? Thanks to all who’ve already done that on this blog.
When I got closer to Amavisti, I saw another name in raised steel … Ocean Neptune. And then when I did some hunting online I saw BBC Tahiti. And Janne Scan. And FCC Embolden. All these names for a vessel that’s six years old!!
Please send along a foto of the tow if you have one and I’ll post it here.
So here’s another social media aka group sourcing request. Yesterday between 1 and 2 pm I caught this vessel leaving Morris Canal and likely headed for sea. It looks a lot like this foto by Tom Turner of R/V Shearwater, an Alpine Seismic Ocean Survey vessel. Here’s the parent company. Did anyone catch a closer foto?
Here was my ride yesterday . . . Pegasus, all dazzling in new red paint on the main house.
All fotos by Will Van Dorp yesterday. Let’s do social.
