Ever F Class 3

The erudite readers of tugster know Evergreen doesn’t have a single vessel, the one that caused some anxiety in Suez recently.  In fact, the fleet comprises about 200 ships, of different sizes or classes.  The L and F classes currently call in the sixth boro.  The teu capacity for the F class is just over […]

Ever F Class 2

Installment 1 was here.  Guess the loa, breadth, and teu? So far, I’ve seen Ever Focus and Ever Forward . . . although it appears I’ve not posted my Ever Forward photos.  I do that sometimes by chance. So Ever Fortune . . . entered service in November 2020.  It’s one of the newest vessels […]

The first tugboat I photographed in 2022 was Zeus!  Truth be told, her profile against the Raritan highlands was […]

Forward, Ever Forward

Other Evergreen F-class vessels have called in the sixth boro.  So can you be sure which one this is? Justine McAllister had the port bow.  Again, name that ship?  I could just be pulling your leg with that title.   Yup, this is the now much-maligned Ever Forward. I too have made the same jokes […]
