This is another case of thinking to do one post, seeing something, and choosing an entirely different post instead.

It’s also Tony A and I tag-teaming.  He saw what appeared to be a new name and face, grabbed some shots,

and emailed them to me.  What he didn’t know at the time is that I was seeing this same sunrise

from a different perspective.

I waited for my path and Shiloh Amon‘s to meet, and later that morning, when I’d just about called it a day, this new boat appeared.  

Other than the lion on the barge house, Shiloh Amon was a blank white canvas.  This fact held most of my attention, but I also noticed her design was more inland waterways than harbor or near-coastal tug.

Note the glass “doors” and squared off “windows”.

A narrow passageway allows passage around the stern, but it’s not much workspace. 

A quick check showed this new boat is bigger, more powerful, and newer than the recently arrived Thunder and earlier Lightning, two boats identical to each other.

Shiloh Amon is 80.6′ x 34′ and has 2400 hp, 400 hp more than Thunder and Lightning. I wonder how long it’ll take for this new boat to get her Centerline markings.

Thx for the first two, Tony A.  The others, WVD.

Here‘s my Halloween post from 12 years ago.  If you’re interested in watching some –if not exactly scary then challenging–videos about sea voyages, how about these:

a 2022 trip on a cargo ship across the Caspian Sea or a 2021 trip across the Black Sea. Knowing the local language is always helpful.
