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 […]

Ever F Class

When I started this blog, Evergreen presented itself in the sixth boro with their D class.  Then they added size and capacity with their L class.  Today for the first time, I saw an F class, Ever Focus.  I can imagine subsequent ships called Faith, Fruitful, Frugal, Friendly . . .  really I’m just guessing.    […]

Rust Never Sleeps 3

Here are previous installments, and I’m just observing in this post;  although most vessels I see have intact coatings, others really need a trip to the shipyard for some paint. The stern of Maersk Columbus was fine, but the bow had some extraordinary streaks of rust. Cosco Istanbul had some need of some work generally […]

Ever Given (Under) Way

The Soo is open, the SL Seaway is open, and now after 6 days, 3 hours, and 38 minutes of blockage . . . the Suez is open. I’d started this post before Ever Given was freed and intend it as a survey of some of the tugs involved, here from largest to smaller. Obviously […]

Ever Given Way

I had something different planned for today, but one does not plan the news.  Since I’m map-oriented, I’m sharing what I found on the “maps” of the Ever Given story, the 20,000 teu+ container ship acting as a cork in a bottleneck. Below is the context for the story.  If you’re not that familiar with […]

Everlast 3

Everlast has been a focus several times here before, so this post will add photos in exotic American Narrows landscapes to the record. She has one of the more interesting service records among Great Lakes tugboats, IMHO.  See here. Then see how Russia and Greece play into her past here. In the background here, you […]

Ever L 3

I’ve seen lots of the L-class, but this was my first view of Ever Lotus.   I’m not sure what’s in the boxes, but she’s carrying a lot of boxes. Ava escorted her out.   Bow watch was performed by this relaxed-appearing seaman, while stern watch was controlled by this hitchhiking but discerning raven.   […]

Ever L 2

It’s that day, and although I’d planned something different, there are a lot of these green containers coming through the sixth boro.  Guess which ship?  Unrelated but something else to guess?  What is the emerald isle of the Great Lakes USA?  Answer follows. Kimberly Turecamo was on port bow the other day, as   James […]

Ever L

Evergreen Marine ships have a unique profile.  Ten of the 30 vessels in this L class have been built in Taiwan, including the one below, Ever Lovely.    Meeting Ever Lovely were Alex and Eric McAllister.     Inside the Narrows, the docking pilot came aboard from Alex.   As Lovely arrived, Legacy departed. Only […]
