The whale happens to be a 2007 1284-teu container ship previously called Beluga Constitution and CMA CGM Corfu, but has carried the “whale” name for almost a decade now. I’ve seen other Warnow–named for a river in NE Germany– vessels in the sixth boro, but never posted any of them until now. 

Some time ago I saw Warnow Dolphin and was intrigued, but I never followed up.

So I felt fortunate the other day

when I passed Kirby Moran assisting the Whale into Red Hook container port.

 

Light and color and composition all came together as

her crew eased her in.

 

She’s left port now and is currently heading for the Panama Canal.
