Such great names on steel vessels that . . . ply our waters
Indefatigable vessels like Hyundai Grace, which left Shanghai on 6 February, entered the Narrows on 2 March–when I got these shots–and by 1 April will
be back in Korea! And what bright orange tanker could ever carry claim for being stealthy . . .
this one with a stack logo like this wedge.
I’m starting to get a hankering to travel . . . to follow FSL Tokyo out the Narrows,
drawn by places like these . . . Handytankersmarvel of Majuro!
While I still have the stamina, I’m going to put my gallivant shoes on and follow Hellas Endurance.
I’m especially intrigued by this one . . . Grande Guinea is a Grimaldi Line RORO, this one named for a sub-Saharan city whose history is linked to that of Timbuktu, a place until recently I’d always hoped to get to, a place that later served as namesake for a coin.
I’m not sure when next I’ll post. All fotos in the past month by Will Van Dorp.
