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.    […]

Morning 2022

Consider this to be in the spirit of Dawn 2021.  I wasn’t there at dawn because the ship I wanted to catch–CMA CGM Von Humboldt–departed in the 0’darks, but I arrived a bit later, cold notwithstanding. The first tugboat I photographed in 2022 was Zeus!  Truth be told, her profile against the Raritan highlands was […]

ULCVs 13

Technological marvel and global supply chains spawned by the deindustrialization of this country go hand in hand with these huge vessels.  CMA CGM J. Adams comes in with +14,000 teu, a peak capacity reached in August 2017 when her sister vessel T. Roosevelt arrived first.  That’s 1202′ x 166′ and running deep.  Tokyo Triumph comes […]

Ford’s Foreign Frigates

Ford here refers to USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78), currently operating on her initial voyage ever,  along with foreign naval vessels, somewhere in the western Atlantic.  Here, two of those, frigates, made their way northbound across the Upper Bay shortly after daybreak earlier this week. Identify the flag on the stern? HNLMS De Zeven Provinciën […]

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 […]

Fog 23

This photo of aframax BW Thalassa I took on Friday.  Note the green BW slash about a third of the shiplength back from the bow.  Here’s a photo from Saturday, 24 hours later, after rain and fog have moved in.  Note the green BW slash on the tanker beyond the Evergreen ship? Ever Focus appears […]

Port of Gloucester 1

Way too many years ago I made a trip back to Gloucester, as posted about here.  So I went back this weekend, had long talks with a few people, but of course that means I didn’t see all the people I would have liked to.  And although putting up these photos seems like walking on […]

Bowsprite’s People Movers and More

Care for a shot of Melville?  ““Take almost any path you please, and ten to one it carries you down in a dale, and leaves you there by a pool in the stream. There is magic in it. Let the most absent-minded of men be plunged in his deepest reveries–stand that man on his legs, […]
