My regrets for not having gotten closer, but the self-unloading bulker called Eastern Power is discharging its cargo into the barge owned by Express Marine. So what do you suppose the cargo might be? Click here to see close up of this vessel and evidence that it’s a sibling of … Alice!!
Shipspotting provides this foto of Eastern Power. Until recently their archive had a foto of her loading in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Why is it that fotos disappear from shipspotting.com? Anyhow, what “grows” in Sydney? Coal. And here is a link to an Express Marine vessel at the coal-fired power plant in Jersey City.
