Here was number 6 in this series.  It occurred to me this afternoon to rename the whole series “weather overwater,” as a tip of the hat to Dr.  Jeff Masters and his site.  His 18-minute TED talk at the link with his name on it is worth the 18 minutes.   And what do you imagine happens on and over sixth boro water on a day like this . . . ?

I’m guessing that every major port in the world sees a member of this fleet now and then, most looking like Bow Fortune here.  For great fotos of these set, taken both onboard and from a distance, click here.

HanJin San Francisco left here a week ago, made a few stops headed south, and is now bound for the Canal.   Previously I caught her here in late September this year.
