Inside Beaufort Inlet is quite the archipelago, the largest island of which is Radio Island. Let’s start from Front Street in Beaufort and circle. Wild horses are there,
as well as really minimal truckable tugs.
And a fishing fleet in port includes Jessica, Jonathan Ryan and
Colton Scott and Miss Sandy V.
Note the means to keep the fish deck free of fumes.
Over on the Morehead City side, prominent are to phosphate storage domes. I presume Beaufort Belle pushes the barges from the mine in Aurora to here. Anyone know how large the Potash corp fleet is.
On the oceanside of the Route 70 bridge, the Moran ship-assist fleet parks between jobs.
Fort Macon, Fort Fisher, and Grace Moran.
Salamina1 loads phosphate.
Jack Holland prepares to move a barge of scrap aluminum bales.
They arrived on this vessel . . .
Robert Burton does the same. I’m not sure where these bales will be converted into aluminum products.
Over behind Fort Macon, WLB 204 Elm is docked, more or less
across the chanel from the landing zone on Radio Island. That’s Na Hoku in the background.
Parting shots include this outbound fishing vessel and
an idea about alternative housing . . if you visit.
