I wonder who Laura K Moran is.  I hope she knows what a formidable vessel carries her name around the sixth boro.  The first two fotos come compliments of Stuart Pate, who took them last December from Norwegian Gem.


That’s one very clean and organized deck.  This overhead shot clearly shows the hawser winch that Les identified a few days back.  Now I need to go back to fotos of Laura K from a year ago to see if that winch was already there, and I just missed it somehow.


Here Laura K heads past Shooter’s over toward the Arthur Kill.


Laura K ending an assist into IMTT, and another where


she escorts in CMA CGM Florida.  A little background on CMA CGM Florida:  launched in 2008, it’s 965′ loa by 105′ abeam, 5078 teu.  And  . . . on CMA CGM, the company:  Walmart named it “ocean carrier of the year” for 2008-9.  Remember that next time you see a Walmart trailer on the highway or  the ubiquitous retail outlets all over this country.


Below is a short video showing CMA CGM Florida westbound in KVK with Laura K tailing.  The video opens with the sound and image of Hornbeck’s Spartan Service passing.
