It’s been months since I used this title, so let me play some catch-up.

with a RORO and an ULCV.   The RORO RCC Africa is the oldest vessel in this post, launched 2004. Its dimensions are 656′ x 105′ and at this moment it’s heading from the east to the west side of South American via the Magellan Strait. Triton, 2016, is the largest vessel here:  1210′ x 167′ and it’s currently heading for Colon PA.

Wye River is the tug meeting above;  Kirby Moran provides an assist to a tanker below.

Angel Star, 2006,  is the shortest in this post, measuring 590′ x 105′ and it has recently transited the Panama Canal on its way to the Baja California port of La Paz, seen here in a post from three years ago. 

Another ULCV,  Cosco Shipping Orchid, 1200′ x 157′, is the newest vessel here, launched in 2019 and currently making for Busan.   Note the gaggle of Centerlines, once Bouchards.

In closing, two years ago I’d not heard of Wan Hai, or if I had, it made such little impact that I quickly forget the name. Wan Hai 315 dates from 2006, and measures 699′ x 105.’  At this time, she’s headed for the Suez from this departure out of the sixth boro of NYC.

Speaking of names, Wan Hai is as creative with names of ships as trucking fleets are with tractors or I am with series of blog posts.  This one was Wan Hai 315.

All photos and any errors, WVD, who never ceases to be amazed by the range of traffic calling in the sixth boro, often the forgotten boro.
