Random Ships Along the St. Lawrence 7

As mid-autumn displays her beauty at the approach to the Beauharnois Canal in the Seaway, my excitement spiked upon seeing MV Sinaa. Sister ship to Nunalik, Sinaa was certain to be carrying specialized cargo delivery gear.  Here’s the rest of the NEAS fleet.  NEAS expands to Nunavut Eastern Arctic Shipping. For the difference between Nunavut […]

Random Ships Along the St. Lawrence 6

It’s another day of mostly but not entirely pics. See the tags for names. Nunalik began life in 2009 as Beluga Fairy.  I love these names. Nunalik is one of the NEAS fleet serving Canada’s north country.  It is Inuit owned. Therefore, it’s name is written in Inuktitut. Sedna is also a name associated with […]

Random Ships Along the St. Lawrence 5

Let’s record some of the ships along the same stretch as yesterday’s post did for tug boats, and the names are in the tags. Nordic Barents was discharging iron ore for the Contrecoeur, although I don’t know the provenance of the ore.   The oil port is certainly concentrated.       I took Happy […]

Random Ships Along the St. Lawrence 3

Again . . . on the run, chasing food like the finned one in the foreground, Federal Asahi heads down bound chasing who knows what. Maria exits the Saguenay River where she discharged a load of bauxite.     And Insignia, later to be speeding downriver at 21 kts, overtakes us at the last bridges […]

Random Ships Along the St. Lawrence 2

In the narrow channel of the SLSW leading between Lake Ontario and Montreal, you can see salties and lakers fairly close up, as you can in the St. Clair area. Enjoy these. A bright day with fluffy but unsettled clouds enhances photos.   Most of these boats I’ve seen before, as you can trace by […]

Random Ships Along the St. Lawrence 1

It’s time to start a new series . . . with BBC Leda. Will cargoes of wind turbine parts ever stop?  What will replace them as the next big thing? This winter–or when I stay in place for a while–I might figure out how many of these Trillium class CSL boats I’ve seen.   I’ve […]

Really Random Tugs 47

Location 1?  Do you know this tug? Location 2.  Tug Rachel is with this unusual looking cargo ship, Lihue. Viking pushes southbound past Castle Rock and Comet northbound along the Hudson River. Near the west end of the East River, it’s C. Angelo and near the east end, it’s Navigator with GT Bulkmaster heading west […]

Random Tankers 2

That more tankers and fuel barges arrive in the sixth boro in the colder months is just my hunch;  maybe someone reading this can supply numbers to prove or disprove this.  It would make sense, given that there’s the need for heating.  In any case, let’s look at some vessels in town in recent months.  […]

What’s visible for now is Pegasus and Maersk Seletar, but behind the container ship and soon to emerge is Mukaddes Kalkavan.  A few hours later, I saw Seletar doing 22 kts heading south along the Jersey coast.  Seletar is an area in Singapore. Ava escorts Mukaddes Kalkavan into the port from the starboard bow. Scot […]

Atina was spinning to starboard before heading out to sea on a sixth boro ebb as a boost to the next port . . . in the Bahamas. YM Witness, a great name, was doing the same . . . the milk run down the East Coast. Höegh Transporter had been pacing and anchoring and […]
