Here was 29.

The photo below is used with permission from “secret salt.”  What appears strange about the photo or the ship?

The photo below shows three tugs and one ship.  The green line track of the ship gives a clear hint of the problem in the photo below.    One of those tugs is Orcus, as shown here.  If anyone got a photo of Orcus towing Darya Moti to get a new rudder, I’d love to see it.  Oh . . . and the repair facility might be in the Bahamas.

Compare this photo of Medi Osaka with the previous one here.  In a day of unloading salt, the ship is almost 20 feet LESS deep in the water.  The vessel leaves today after an additional three days of unloading, and I wish I could be there to photograph it empty for comparison, but .  .  . inland works interferes.

Alpine Stealth . . . there’s irony in naming a bright orange vessel anything stealth.  Here was a previous one.  And here . .  . scroll through, check out the stack design on V8 Stealth II.

For scale, see the crewman on the whaleback of this MSC–not Military Sealift Command–container vessel.

MSC Lorena carries a whole block of reefers just aft of the house.
