This is “restricted visibility,” and as you can imagine, lots of fog horn blasts were sounded.  An alternative explanation is that APL Dublin just folds herself into another dimension.  The ship was launched in 2012.

Believe it or not, the vessel below is also APL Dublin, photo taken about 10 minutes earlier in a less foggy area of the sixth boro.

On a much clearer day, Erato exchanges containers in Brooklyn’s container port.  As of this writing, Erato is making for Haiti.

Algoma Integrity discharges aggregates in Brooklyn.  She began life in 2009 as Gypsum IntegrityGypsum vessels used to frequent the North River earlier THIS century.

CPO Hamburg enters the port of NYNJ.  A 2009 vessel, she was previously called Seattle Express.  The CPO and Conti vessels are part of the Offen Group.

I expected Sealand Illinois to be long and sleek and Maersk blue, as she appears in older photos.  She dates from 2000.

And finally, ONE Marvel is right up there in the constellation of great names, but 

when she last arrived inbound, the fog dimmed even her magenta skin.

Outbound, let’s have a look at this ULCV,

YM Width, a Taiwan-built box ship from 2016.  She’s one of 26 W-class vessels operated by Yang Ming.  Also in the boro recently were YM Wellhead, YM Wind, and YM Warranty, and another W-class vessels you might recall is YM World.

This title goes back more than 10 years.  But I got some congested photos recently, so I dredge up an old title.  Count the boats of all sizes here.  Of course, foreshortening makes them seem much closer to each other than they really are.  I count at least 12 vessels on the photo below, including some I had not noticed when I took it.

There are five here, and maybe two miles of separation between the two container ships.

Three operations were happening simultaneously in this stretch of the channel, and all were either stemming or moving very slowly.

Again, there’s lots of foreshortening here.

It may be exhilarating to get this close to a large ship, but if your engine stalls . . .  stuff’ll happen really fast.

Here’s a different sort of “traffic” photo from august 31, 2008 . . . exactly 12 years ago.  And it gives me an idea for a post.  By the way, left to right, can you name at least half of the 12 boats at least partly visible here?

All photos, WVD.
