Random ULCVs 5

Glovis Cosmos has a beam of 105′.  YM Warmth . . . 167′.  Of course, we’re looking at the pier from an angle,so there’s that accentuating the difference in beam.  We’ll return to YM Warmth. The next day just after 0600, CMA CGM A. Lincoln appeared around Bergen Point with an entourage of tugboats.   […]

Random ULCVs 4

First off, I missed CMA CGM La Perouse, which left before daylight this morning. I had to look up La Perouse, since it was a French word I didn’t know.  It turns out that it’s a person, an accomplished 18th century French explorer of the Pacific.  Click here for a map of his explorations, along […]

Random ULCVs 3

I’m still not over how large these vessels are.  Note the two Moran tugs off the stern of ONE Minato. As for numbers, she’s 1200′ x 167′.  They’re all approximately this length, which is roughly what the Empire State Building is without its spire.  She has capacity of 13,900 teu.  She was built near Hiroshima […]

Random ULCVs 2

Here was the first in the series.  It does seem a greater percentage of container ships calling in the the sixth boro are  ULCVs.  Hyundai Hope arrived here on Saturday. and from here, where she departed midmorning today,  she goes into the port of Wilmington.  She must be a sight to see there.  HMM, Hyundai […]

Meeting Monaco Bridge

Miriam Moran looks to be alone, with a half dozen other units in the distance, but she’s converging with a pack. Minutes later, Kirby takes the stern of the ULCV, and James D. emerges from the far side, where she landed a docking pilot. Then, Miriam and Kimberly like choreography assume their positions and paths […]

CMA CGM Chile

I happened onto a very busy sunrise this morning, five ships of which two were ULCVs and a half dozen of so tugboats can be seen. The first ULCV was CMA CGM Chile, and the light, as last night’s Hunter’s Moon settled in the west, was perfect. Marie J Turecamo and Margaret Moran assisted, Here […]

Cold Pink

Prior pink posts can be found here.  Given the dramatic drop in temperatures the sixth boro has been in three days–from 57 to 17 or so– I had no choice but to call this cold pink, or frigid magenta if you prefer.  ONE Hawk has been on this blog before here. But think about it […]

Random ULCVs 1

Update on the calendar voting, i.e., “polling… 1 through 4”   you’ve now seen the options for each month, but voting remains open, and I’m still accepting candidates for the December page.  And I’m grateful for all the voting so far. Less than a handful of years back, a buzz could be heard in all […]

CMA CGM 15000 B

Here was the part A.  CMA CGM Argentina, sister toMexico and Brazil, steamed up the coast Sunday evening, making me think I’d miss it.  But it dropped anchor 15 or so miles off Point Pleasant, and stayed there making pattern like this.  Another ULCV was similarly anchored off Jones Beach, and it came into the […]

Thalassa Pistis

Is this a miniature replica of a tugboat posed beside a green wall? Not really.  But besides ULCVs like Thalassa Pistis (sea of faith?), even 100′ x 40′ tugboats seem to shrink.   Enlarge this photo and you’ll see the folks here heading out to fish implausibly turn their backs to the huge ship not […]
