Here  are the two previous posts by this title, and more.

Juxtaposed boats invite comparison, allow perception of subtle difference, here between Marion and Doris.

It also gives a sense of the random traffic patterns, here about to pass the impatient Peking are (l to r) Michael Miller, Charles Burton, and way in the distance Robert E. McAllister.

Here , a few seconds later, Charles Burton‘s barge CVA-601 is about to obscure Chandra B–on a ship assist?– and Miriam Moran.

Here, from l to r, it’s Sapphire Coast, Charles Burton, Evening Mist, Ellen S. Bouchard, Robert E. McAllister, Scott Turecamo, and Erin McAllister.   cg2

And a quarter hour later and from a different vantage point, it’s Stena Companion, Cielo di Milano, a Miller launch, Maersk Phoenix, and NCS Beijing.

Here’s an index to the 44 prior posts by this name.  CMA CGM Parsifal here is heavily laden, looks huge–and for the sixth boro is one of the largest that have called to date–almost 11oo’ loa and around 8500 teu-capacity, but relative to the current largest container ship in the world is smaller by half, ranked by capacity.

I’ve done lots of posts focusing on intriguing names, but Parsifal needs to be added to that list.  In the foreign-to-me world of opera, Parsifal was a “pure fool,” the only knight unsullied enough to get the magic sword back from the evil seductress Kundry.  Cool.

Here’s JRT Moran–the sixth boro’s newest new tug–coming out to meet Troitsky Bridge.

JRT teams up here with the venerable James Turecamo, a tandem that shows evolution in twin screw design over almost a half century.   Troitsky [trinity] Bridge is named for a structure in St. Petersburg;  for some reason it’s almost the name of a fun civil engineering competition.  Local high schools run such competitions also.

Living along the banks of the sixth boro has disadvantages, but I truly enjoy the fact that this too is part of the traffic.

Sorry for the hiatus in posting.  I was out at sunrise New Years Day . . . but more on that in a moment.

Part of my silence was attributable to verizon.  The rest . . . was because I decided to ACT on new year’s resolutions, not just make them.

The first photos after sunrise January 1 . . . Buchanan 1, who must have been towing a loaded dredge spoils scow out as the new years whistles were blowing and fireworks blasting.  Bravo, Buchanan 1.

The linemen/boom managers were out working, as

Jay Michael headed out with a scow load of dredge spoils, evidence that dredgers worked their way from 2014 to 2015.
