Guess the port?  The tug is Orgullo De Izabal [Pride of Izabal] , built in 2007 by Damen in Gorinchem, NL.  She measures 72′ x 22.’

In the same port was AS Fiorelia, a small container vessel I believe I’ve seen in the sixth boro, just never–so far as I can determine–posted here. Note the container cranes. And the port is?

How’s this for the non-stealth sub.  I’ve never seen one, but Joseph T said he traveled down to 100′ without “donning dive gear or calculating decompression tables.”

 

Boca Grande, a Kirby tug, and Seabulk Towing’s Condor  . . .  make this port of Miami, and Terminal H, according to Joseph.   The tugs are 1100 hp and 6700 hp, respectively.   Have you guessed the top two photos’ location yet?

Bayou Teche here secures the 403;  farther down the dock, Oceania Sirena is about to depart.   Bayou Teche is a 3000 hp Kirby boat about five years old.

So, the first two photos Joseph took in Santo Tomás de Castilla, Guatemala, heart of Garifuna land.  Surprisingly, that bay was first colonized, unsuccessfully, by the Belgians!

Below, l to r, it’s Oasis of the Seas and Seven Seas Explorer, Joseph’s ride.

Many thanks for these photos, Joseph.
