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 pacing some more off Long Island for the longest time, but just came in one morning, likely for fuel and supplies

Seatrade Blue finished its business here and headed for the next port, Jamaica, and then the big Canal.

Stream Pacific is a new name for me.  She was in, then out and after another stop, is heading back to the Gulf of Mexico.

Atlantic Sail is making its way eastbound across the Atlantic, as currently is

Constellation.

Nautical Sarah is long gone . . . to Indonesia.

Stolt Norland is heading for the Gulf of Mexico.

Mila is a 2018 ultramax bulk carrier.

Orange Victoria is still in town, as of this writing.

And more will come and go  . . . .  Some will never return, others will with the same name or another . . .

All photos, each a moment in time, WVD, who is seeking a moment canoeing up along NY, NJ, and PA.

Capt. Willie Landers last appeared here  several years ago;  she lost a substantial mast to gain an upper wheelhouse.

She came in during my favorite time of day.

She met Atlantic Sail off Stapleton.

Meredith left a barge alongside Orange Victoria and went on to other assignments.

Troy’s pride Sarah D moved a stone scow out past Jamaica Bay, as all her crew who could did work on deck.

 

 

Ava M waited for a ship as a sloop sailed past.

Daisy Mae headed out for Philly with CMT Y NOT 1 and a load

of non-ferrous scrap, maybe.

 

 

Sea Fox headed out to a job and met Bomar Caen coming into Brooklyn.  Bomar Caen was previously CMA CGM Jaguar.

All photos, WVD.

In case you’re keeping track, I’ve been home a long time quite a while, happy to help by staying put.  I’ve had harder work, and I’m really busy.  Nautical Sarah is still in town, a week and a half after she appeared to be departing.

USNS Watkins has been all the way to Florida, I believe.

Atlantic Sail is back in Liverpool, albeit briefly.

Lalinde is heading back to Guatemala.

Cardiff is underway, halfway to Brasil.

Songa Winds is anchored off Savannah. Rana Miller may be farther south than that, and Ernest Campbell is in the KVK.

An very light RHL Agilitas is bound for the Halifax portion of its route, and

Lady Saliha is in Veracruz.

Seebee,  CMA CGM Orca, etc. . . . I see your intriguing signal . . . but I’m not getting photos.

All photos here,  taken and not taken, WVD.

 

 

This is my Janus post . . . which I’ll start with a photo I took in January 2007 of an intriguing set of sculptures, since licensed to Trinity Church in Manhattan.

Since I’ve tons to do today, comment will be minimal.  The photo below I took near the KVK salt pile on January 14, 2016.  Eagle Ford, to the right, has since been scrapped in Pakistan.

The history of Alnair, photo taken in Havana harbor on February 4, 2016, is still untraced.  It looks like an ex-USN tug.  Click here for more Cuban photos.

This photo of JRT Moran and Orange Sun I took on March 12.

This photo of Hudson was taken in Maassluis, very near where my father grew up,  on April 4. Many more Maassluis photos can be found here.

Sandmaster I photographed here on May 6.  since then, she’s moved to Roatan, I’m told, and I’d love to go there and see how she’s doing.  Maybe I can learn some Garifuna while I’m there.

June 1, I took this, with Robert E. McAllister and an invisible Ellen escorting Maersk Idaho out the door.

July 14, I saw GL tug Nebraska yank bulkier Isolda with 56,000 tons of corn through a narrow opening and out the Maumee.

August 23 I caught Atlantic Sail outbound past a nearly completed Wavertree.  And come to think of it, this is a perfect Janus photo.

September 9 at the old port in Montreal I caught Svitzer Montreal tied up and waiting for the next job.

October 18, I caught Atlanticborg and Algoma Enterprise down bound between Cape Vincent and Clayton NY.

November 4, while waiting for another tow, I caught Sarah Ann switching out scrap scows in the Gowanus.

And I’ll end this retrospective Janus post with a mystery shot, which I hope to tell you more about in 2017.  All I’ll say is that I took it yesterday and can identify only some of what is depicted. Anyone add something about this photo?

I feel blessed with another year of life, energy, gallivants, and challenges.  Thank you for reading and writing me.  Special thanks to you all who sent USPS cards !  I wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2017.   Here’s what Spock would say and where he got it.

Here was my “last hours” post from 2015.  And here from the year before with some vessels sailing away forever.   And here showing what I painted in the last hours of 2013.  And one more with origins “oud jaardag” stuff from the finale of 2011.

Over half a year ago, I did a series of posts on Atlantic Star, the first of the new ACL c-ships arriving in the sixth boro for the first time.  The other day was my first time to spot the next of the set of five.

And given the location of Wavertree, a 130-year-old  veteran of Atlantic (and all its adjoining waters)  sailing,

juxtaposing the two seemed an opportunity not to pass up.  imagine this as cover art for a book called Atlantic Sail, Then and Now.   And no, I haven’t written it.

Here’s a shot.  Now if only I’d had a drone….  I suppose in a few weeks if Peking is docked here, a shot with that barque and this Zim vessel (IMO 9289544) would be the one to get.

See in the middle distance a Nukahevan craft passing Atlantic Sail?

No matter.  Let’s study the novel shapes and angles on the CONRO, assisted out here by Eric McAllister.

That’s the stack offset to port.

Steel curves like this in superstructure are unusual.

Sail on,

Atlantic Sail.  Here’s the report for the week Atlantic Compass went to scrap.
