Orange Juice

But first, an orange digression leaving the Narrows this morning under the tow of Michael J. McAllister, with Resolute alongside.  Is it Senator John J. Marchi or Guy V. Molinari?  These years maintenance is done in Virginia, and here are fotos from just under a year ago of Marchi at sea.  Is special ballasting need […]

Orange Sun 2

Quick post today . . . If you ask me what has been the biggest surprise since I moved to NYC, discovered the sixth boro’s delights, and began tracking its flora, fauna, and mechanica, I’d say the the orange juice ships. Orange Sun came off the ways in 2007, and has called in the sixth […]

Orange Sun

Here are previous posts with this vessel, but first, decide what color the metal below is.  I’ll come back to this photo. When a tug has a sheet the bow, it means one thing about the vessel involved in the assist. A fleet of fruit juice tankers like this floats the oceans. Maybe someone can comment […]

Curious Orange

. . . or citrus yellow . . .  there was a movie almost half a century ago that intrigued me as a teenager, and the phrase has stuck.  But this post is about those tanker that call in the sixth boro with orange juice.  Click here to learn more about the Brazilian orange juice […]

Southern Juice

No, “southern juice” is not a nautical expression bowsprite left off her recent illustrated vocabulary instruction; rather, it’s the radiant machine below.  For a tanker built a quarter century go, Southern Juice moves as a thing of beauty, (I’ll say it), like a woman whose presence intensifies as she ages, she who dazzles and delights […]

Orange

After an incomplete spectrum of blog color titles, here’s orange although I’m not satisfied with my pictures..   Container ship Atlantic Ocean and sisters are orange regulars, reefers, but . . .   Aegean Faith is orange and carries the most common fluid into the sixth boro, but I set out to shot something orange […]

Congestion 5

Sometimes the sixth boro gets crowded, as you can see from these posts.  This post tries to show that, but keep in mind that foreshortening makes these vessels seem closer than they are–the two ships below are more than a mile apart.  Keep in mind also that a water channel is a dynamic medium, current […]

Assists 6

Here goes another 3-fer, three cargo vessels making their way again through the KVK simultaneously.  JRT here at dawn assists orange juice carrier Orange Blossom 2 through the ConHook Range. Jonathan C passes in front of them, returning from assisting another vessel now bound for sea. Right behind the juice carrier is a box ship. […]

Dutch Tugs 8

These photos come via Jan van der Doe and were taken by Jan Oosterboer in the Lekhaven area of Rotterdam. Lingestroom, a Damen Shoalbuster 3512 design and launched in 2017, measures 114′ x 39′ and is powered by triple screw driven by three Caterpillar C32-TTA SCAC. Unrelated, notice the stack for the Atlanship SA orange juice tanker […]

Names 32

Here’s the series. And there, look at that name.   No, not that one. .. this one.  And the paint job–or time elapsed since the most recent one–lends authenticity to the name. She looks to have been “rode hard and put away wet,” but that expression may just apply to horses and this bulk carrier […]
