Eastern Welder fishes as Emma Miller services Asphalt Star.
Wolf River does hydrographic work while
Chesapeake Coast lighters Elixir, and just beyond
Amazon Brilliance belies her name.

OOps! I used “star” title already back five years back.
Some of you can read the name of the black mystery vessel; the one off its stern appeared in this blog at least as early as August 2007. Today’s McAllister Responder was one of triplets delivered in 1967 to Esso Shipping. See her here in Exxon colors; actually as you scroll through, be aware that the sixth foto down is filched from this blog . . . Auke!!?@#.
Assisting in this job is another of the triplets, Charles D. McAllister. Here are Auke Visser “compiled” fotos of her way back. Any guesses yet what the mystery ship is?
