My categories like “cargoes” and “specialized” emerged quite organically, but how better to describe a vessel such as the one that entered the Narrows yesterday.



Three tugs took about an hour to begin the escorting process.



What is it, you ask? My guess is post-panamax cranes for Port Elizabeth, given that Maher is painted on the cranes portside. Check this article about ZPMC, and notice the initials on the shelf alongside the hull not far above the waterline.


Here is a link to another shot, here, and here. I was eager to get a shot of the vessel squeezing under the Verrazano, and then my camera batteries died!!
