Dace lighters STI Excel.

 

Neptune comes into town again.

Buchanan 12 makes a rare appearance light, but everyone needs to refuel periodically.

Janet D follows Seeley into the Kills.

How a bout a four’fer . . .   counter:  Marjorie, Kristin Poling, Nicholas, and Jordan Rose.

Sea Lion heads eastbound.

B. Franklin travels west, and

Discovery Coast, east. .  .  both light.

Nathan G moves a deep scow into the Kills with Cape Wrath lurking in the background. 

Traffic never stops, and it’ll outlast me, the photographer, WVD.

 

Yesterday close ups . . . today zoomed outs, like this.  There’s something eerie about a bulker named Tigris (2003) headed up the Hudson, for Yonkers and then Aruba, but I’m glad bowsprite caught this foto, which suggests how narrow the North River here is. I’d seen Tigris but been unable to get a foto.

Likewise, Ocean Morning . . . I saw her on AIS over in Port Newark, but  . . . only thanks to John Watson do I have a foto of her leaving here for Boston.

Great Eastern (2005) I caught several times . . . and by now, like Ocean Morning, she’s in Boston.

Yuan He (1994) also heads from here to Boston;  this German-built vessel seems

to be showing her segments overly so distinctly I could be convinced she’s about   . . .  to molt!

Maersk Willemstadt was here last week and is already outbound from Savannah, Miami as next destination.

Likewise, Turandot (1994 , is Georgia bound tonight.  Turandot, like other WW vessels, carries an operatic name like Don Juan and Traviata.

Conti Larimar (2011) may still be

loading scrap in the sixth boro.

What ship is this?  Maria T

is actually a barge, a dry cargo covered barge whose contents are suggested by the name . . . LaFarge, and if that sounds French . . . well, it is.   And I believe it’s pushed by Doris Moran.

Passing in the KVK here are Advance Victoria, escorted by  Gramma Lee T. Moran, and

Valle di Granada, 2006, 2002, and 2005, respectively.

And to conclude, dramatic vessel with a forbidding name . . . Cape Wrath (1982), named for this wet and wild desert . ..  of sorts, getting serviced over at GMD Bayonne.

Fotos 1 and 2 as attributed;  all others by Will Van Dorp.
