It’s been over a month since I did a thoroughly non-scientific sampling of ships in the boro. I’ve not gotten photos this time, but ONE Apus is back in town after a long hiatus, a time to reconstruct the cells after a Pacific mishap. 

Above, not quite a month on, Nordspring is in the Atlantic between Charleston and Gibraltar.  Al Qibla, below, is currently in the Charleston parking lot, after having been in the Savannah offshore parking lot . . . well, technically,  anchorage.

 

Stolt Larix has departed Houston for sea.

Lady Malou, between November 9 and November 29, has made it through the Panama Canal and is now at a berth in Guatemala, Pacific side.

Polar Cod is heading between Houston and the Panama Canal.

Calypso–an excellent name for a ship–has departed for the Caribbean, maybe the north coast of South America.

The sixth boro’s own Katherine Walker is in the sixth boro.  She’s named for the light keeper who for decades–until 1919– tended that light right off her stern in this photo.

This month I finally caught another of the Explorer-class CMA CGM ULCVs, Magellan. Its namesake Fernão de Magalhães got involved in lethal politics between rival groups on or near the island of Cebu.

Magellan left NYC for Savannah, and now it’s on its way to the Canal and the Pacific.

Spar Pyxis is still in the boro, discharging road salt loaded in Hereke, TR at the Duraport salt pile.

All photos, WVD, who thinks this sixth boro place is the real NYC that never sleeps.
