Combi Dock III and the Peking Saga 3

No need for much language here.  I started these photos around 0830.  Despite some rain, conditions were ideal for this loading . . . or engulfing. Here Dorothy J gently moves the antique barque foot by foot closer to Hamburg. Combo-Dock III, the engulfer, lies in wait. Robert IV assists when needed. Without the zoom, […]

RORO and FLOFLO 2

Here was the first in this series of titles, from almost seven years ago. The barge with green containers, the bridge, and the Glovis roll on-roll off (RORO) vessel all look great bathed in January morning light, a bit of wolf moon light thrown in as well. I don’t know if this RORO has called […]

Time is of the essence here, but I’ll bet working in the 90 degree […]

Yesterday at 13:31, Combi-Dock III is in sight . . . 14:04, she approaches the VZ Bridge . . .   I don’t know how many crew are on board, but soon they’ll be quite busy until they depart with their cargo . . .   Peking–I imagine–will float in here, as through a dropped […]
