Any guesses about the location on the far shore with the spiky masts?
From near to far: USNS T-AKR 310 Watson, T-AKR-304 Pililaau, T-AK 3006 Eugene Obregon, and T-AKR 311 Sisler. Sisler, as recorded here on this blog, arrived in the sixth boro a bit over a year ago for maintenance at GMD Bayonne.
Quick question: I like the term “Hampton Roads” to described that water bordered by cities that include Norfolk, Hampton, Newport News, etc. It reminds me of the term I take credit for, “the sixth boro.” How did “Hampton Roads” originate? Why isn’t it “Norfolk Roads” or “X roads” with another locality lending its name? Why did “Staten Island Roads” or some such never take root here? Just wondering.

I’ve no clue what these vital assorted chemicals might be, or what their journey is.

There’s so much that does NOT meet the eye and is NOT easily discovered about in/outflow of commodities in the boro. Of course, petroleum products and containers dominate, along with an occasional elixir of orange. Some months back I posted my fantasy about sailing goods into the boro from the agricultural north. Bowsprite reflects on overlapping ideas here.
