I first used this title over five years ago here  . . .  back when I still put captions underneath fotos.  My preference now is to put captions above because of how you need to scroll down to read a post.  Sorry about the confusion.

SeaEden . . .  sounds like it’s designed to make crew think conditions are idyllic . . . .

Foto comes from bowsprite . . .  Dole Colombia. . .  as blotchy yellow as a banana skin.

Adriatic Wave . . .  movement of water or shape of energy or a social trend or a hand signal?

Asian Grace . . . as I pursued her a few weeks ago, I wondered what she was . . .  Little did I expect a RORO, here assisted into the port of Wilmington by a tug mirage that appears to float of the water with a ball-shaped hull.  Tugs might be Sonie and Sally.

Grand Champion . . .  makes a recently stripped bicycle racer come to mind.

High Seas . . . looking calm.  I’ll be there’s no vessel named “international waters,” although I once saw a rowboat with mare liberum painted on the bow.

I’ve never seen a vessel–not even this one–sans name.   Actually this is Atlantic Pearl.

What attracted my attention to Himalaya was the spare prop, but the name memorializes a place as far from sea level as is possible.

Here’s a shot showing Puffin and Huffin together.

Ah . . . hand signal . . . so that’s how one might do the Adriatic Wave?

Some recognize their “heroes of the harbor,” and that’s a great thing.  I’d like to offer my list of “paladins of the port waters,”  honoring all those who work on the sixth boro and adjoining waters, be they partially permanent or totally transient visitors of our great port.

Honorees change constantly.  A recent survey of those mariners include crew of Indonesian-flagged High Seas, a vessel previously here under the name Pacific Turquoise.

Add in Yorktown, currently in town employing shipyard workers after

a mishap on the Great Lakes.

Kudos to this unidentified Moran boat moving containers around the harbor as they should be moved  with much great frequency.

I think it’s Brendan, but the Lady on the other side of the barge is not talking.

Here’s to the hundreds of working mariners and shore crews represented by Carnival Miracle, Emma Miller, and the unidentified barges here.

Hats off to the crew of Natalia McDevitt, which I’ve never seen here before.

Let’s hear it for the crews of Laura K and the unidentified tanker off her starboard, now headed to points south and east.

And a salute to crews who might rescue you in case of mishaps on the waters.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who thanks you for checking his list.
