I mean the title here as “I’d love to see more Bloxom.” John Dupee took this shot of Bloxom from the waterside,

Franz Von Riedel took the one at this link from another water angle, and standing on the bank, I took the one below. Doesn’t smoke appear to be leaving the stack?

Bloxom (aka LT-653) was built in Point Pleasant, WV, for the US Army in 1944. Can anyone point to a foto of Bloxom in service either for the Army or later? Now, it disintegrates in Rossville in the Arthur Kill.

Unrelated odds & ends: Check out the comments by “rice hauler” to the left above. It identifies the cargo on MSC Alexa.

Also, more pirate action along the Somali coast.
