This is what 13,000 teu looks like coming straight at you in the early morning . .

And when another 8500+ passes you, that’s a lot of boxes, tractors, and stuff.

 

 

 

See the three bridges in the distance . . . Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg?     I’d like to see a comparison of the strength to weight ratio of that towline and the cable holding the roadbeds on the bridges?

Lady of the Harbor reaches up, and her assessment is . . . impressive breaking strength.

From here, the tow winds itself toward the Bayonne Bridge, where the big turn to starboard get made, assisted by Jonathan C and that towline, with James D and Kimberly. assisting from vectors needed.
