Cosco Shipping Jasmine

Peony has appeared on this blog twice, but this is the first time for Jasmine. I waited at the Narrows until one of the two box ships I was eyeing headed out yesterday, a hot seat in spite of the shade and the breezes, and Jasmine was first.  The other was the irregularly named ONE Contribution, […]

CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci

The Canadas and I were attentive, but it was really just another ULCV.  This was was named for Columbus’ detractor.  Ironically, Maersk Columbus will be arriving in the sixth boro today. It struck me as remarkable that in spite of the number of containers visible–and of course many more are invisible–Vespucci rode fairly high in […]

Sarah D makes for Global Terminal, Helen Laraway passes an inbound container vessel, Ava M. guides a ULCV in beside a cruise ship, Rebecca Ann moves a light scrap barge, Capt. Brian A. tails a box ship into her berth, Genesis Glory passes GM 11105, Eric McAllister assists a tanker into its berth, Rhea I. […]

Triton

Triton is a fitting name* for the current record-holding largest ULCV to call in the sixth boro.  If the Panamanians call it that after CMA CGM T. Roosevelt–-also in the sixth boro this week–call it that, that passes muster as true for me, since they charge fees by this criterion. The photos above and below […]

ONE Apus

While waiting for Triton, I had a surprise, a big pink surprise.  I hope someone gets photos of Triton when she departs. But here, 24 days and 13 hours out of Singapore, it’s ONE Apus, which rhymes with “tape us.”  Since she’s a duplicate, I think, of ONE Stork, I assumed an apus referred to […]

By the way, did anyone get good photos of Triton, the biggest of the big ULCVs to call in the sixth boro so far?  She was coming under the Bayonne Bridge as first light was breaking.  More on that ULCV at the end of this post. Let me start with two photos I took in […]

Small Craft 21

It’s that time of year. Some small commercial fishing boats do stay around in winter, but I don’t recall seeing Never Enuff in frigid weather. Catamarans like Good Karma might sail all winter, but down south ….   Jackie C . . . a dive boat?   I didn’t catch a name on this trap […]

Nautic Narrows News 1

Spring and fog coexist a lot, and from there, the gradation from fog to summer haze is somewhat blurred.  Blue-hulled Oyster Catcher, in the foreground, gives clearest indication that this in not a black/white/gray photo.  I’ve searched online fruitlessly to confirm that Oyster Catcher is an NYC DEP vessel.  When A panoply of vessels converge […]

Tale of the Tape 5

When I saw Anthem of the Seas departing the Narrows as I waited for “da world” the other day, I was aware of a possible shot . . .  juxtaposing a large cruise ship with an ULCV.  Is there a ULCV/ULCC-type abbreviation for cruise ships . . .  eg, ULPV?  But I digress.  Imagine for […]

World Comes to NYC’s Sixth Boro

Quick post today . . . with a followup tomorrow.  I became somewhat obsessed with the name of this ULCV;  I’d expected it to arrive a day earlier and it anchored a dozen leagues out, so you can understand my obsession when my brain told me I was waiting in vain for the “world.”  For […]
