Quick post today . . . If you ask me what has been the biggest surprise since I moved to NYC, discovered the sixth boro’s delights, and began tracking its flora, fauna, and mechanica, I’d say the the orange juice ships.

Orange Sun came off the ways in 2007, and has called in the sixth boro many times.

From my observer’s vantage point, she’s as immaculate as a well-used ship can be.

Even the assist boats keep a white canvas (?) between the rubber rendering and the light-colored hull.

Is that mismatched touch-up paint?

A recent foggy day enhanced the appearance of her buttery color scheme.

It’s fair to say that since seeing my first OJ tanker, my consumption of the juice has increased.  To be fair, I use the word “butter” to describe hull color, but my consumption of butter has not increased.
