There’s RORO, like GIGO.  And check out the red cargo in roughly the center of this foto . . .  a garbage truck on its way south.  Guess that makes this vessel a GTOGTO.  Doubleclick enlarges.

Honestly, can you place “basseterre?”   It’s neither a slur nor a flood plain.

This 1979 vessel, named for an obscure island in Norway–note the Norwegian port now painted over–reminds me of Grey Shark.

Basseterre is the capital of the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis (FSKN).  And I digress, but FSKN with twice the area of Staten Island has fewer inhabitants than Staten Island did a century ago.  FSKN population density today is 424 people/square mile;  Staten Island today . . .

7587 people/square mile!    Do you suppose the person in yellow farmer-johns is just out fishing, or might he have another transaction with Lygra ?

Unrelated:  what’s floating toward Hawaii?  See here.  And what’s swimming in declining numbers here?

Can an ocean-going tug like Hoga, hero of Pearl Harbor, get to Little Rock? See here.
