Big sky and small ship? Actually it’s among the largest ships currently serving NYC, at 1063′ loa, or almost 2.81 times loa of Peking and 3.3 times the beam.
Actually, Hyundai Jupiter is the first of HMM’s “Earth-series” that I’ve gotten any sort of photo of. My recent attempt of Hyundai Pluto was lost in the snowstorm a few weeks back. As of this writing, Pluto is off western US, Mars is off western Mexico, Saturn … off western Korea, Neptune … traversing Tsugaru Straits, and Hyundai Earth … between Madagascar and Cape of Good Hope.
She’s among the biggest in the port, 1062′ x 155.’
Other ships calling recently include Bow Jubail, here assisted by
Turecamo Girls. By the way, did you even notice the assist tugs on Hyundai Jupiter above?
Shrike loaded scrap,
APL Yangshan and Hamburg Sud Monte Rosa transfer boxes, and
Polaris waits at anchor.
To return here to the tugs visible on the Hyundai ship, they were Robert E. and Erin.
Invisible but assisting on the starboard side was Ellen. And as of this writing Hyundai Jupiter has tied up in Norfolk, doing a steady almost-20 its much of the way.
