Cargoes past featured–besides plain colored containers–trucks, and boats like this. Anyone know the cargo of a rowboat called Liv?  Unrelated to the sixth boro, but the answer follows at end of post.   Some of these

traveled to sea yesterday on

President Polk.  Military colors?  Some engines or generators traveled a little farther back.

No . .  cargo here is not cobalt.  But can anyone tell me the types of oils or chemicals she carries?  For pics of her launch, see here;  scroll down a bit.

As to cargoes or potential ones here, use your imagi . . .

nat

ion. I still have no confirmation what this fishing boat catches.  MOL Express, 964′ loa.  Bering Sea (ex-Stacy Moran and ex-Cougar) stands by barge in the distance.

E-Bos undergoes lightering.

Cargo on Padre Island . . . rich Hudson Valley silt, soon “dissipant” on the  seabottom.

And more on this later:  a group a thirsty folk in matching red uniforms evoking a certain cargo-delivery outfit from up north . . .  .  Could they have liberated themselves from the hold of Ambrose?  Would they be carrying TWICs?

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.  Liv . . . . info here.  Cargo/powerplant is a young woman named Katie Spotz.

Blogging–you know this–means maintaining a log, with all the benefits. Here‘s what I logged a year ago.

The solstice this year happens 12/22 at 1:08 am EST (6:08 UT). For this post, I wanted only fotos I took on the 12/21. Above a very crowded Arthur Kill: (foreground left to right) Thomas D. Witte, APL Virginia, Atlantic Ocean, Turkon’s Dilara Kilkavan, and a tiny work boat.

And here’s more: aft of APL Virginia lies APL President Polk, Ellen McAllister at bow and Eileen McAllister abeam. And you thought the highways were jammed. And I wonder whether these containers hold spring fashions and summer clothes.

It’s 4 pm here, already dark at nine hours before the solstice; 182 days from now, come summer solstice, folks will lie still sunning themselves. Peace on earth, calm at sea, and quiet at anchorage . . . like the crew on this Reinauer tug and barge.

Only 91 short but lengthening days til spring!!!
