Three days after the stunning but dark color fotos by bowsprite,  it’s St Patrick’s Day, and weather in the sixth boro has returned color, blue skies.  Pegasus is radiant, waiting for shaft, prop, and splash.  Doubleclicking enlarges most fotos.

Jade bluegreen Maersk Tangier gets bisected by the wall of the drydock supporting Pegasus.  Note the props on left side of foto, like three- and five-leafed clovers.  Pegasus has a four-leaf, which you saw here.

Maersk Tangier (1990) seems to have an unusual crane, for moving containers in smaller ports.

This foto of Minerva Marina was taken from Rosebank, the same location as the sixth foto in “Weather 3.”

Still from the same location but zoomed in, note the bow of Minerva Marina and the stern of Halit Bey, and in between, see the pyramidal building called  120 Wall Street, in Manhattan, where the green of St. Patrick’s prevailed yesterday, I assume.  Notice the crew–five of them– on the Minerva tanker relative to the anchor machinery size.

Moyra, (launched in Wuhan, China in 2005) resplendent in dawn light, readies to leave for … the Carolinas?

And a final shot of Moyra on this bright St Patrick’s Day.  I really tried to find a green hull today.

To get back to St. Patrick’s . . . or San Patricio’s, here’s a twist you might not have heard:  Paddy Moloney, the Chieftains, and Ry Cooder have teamed up with Mexican musicians–including Lila Downs–to commemorate a group of Irish who played an unexpected role in the Mexican-American War in 1846.
