Random means all within the past month and all ages and sizes, like Giancarlo D  2016   508′ x 85′.

Kmarin Resolution is also a 2016  build, but 820′ x 144′.  Lightering is  Linda Moran with barge HoustonLinda was the tug spared in the W & D fire back in 2008. Maybe someone can identify the Reinauer units in the distance.

 

Golden Shiner is 2007 and 748′ x 105′.  Challenge Passage is 590′ x 105′ and was launched in 2005.

and River Shiner 2005 and same dimensions as the other Shiner, both sometimes in other contexts referred to as bait fish.

 

Chandra B, 2016 and 79′ x 23′, is the sixth boro’s latest and greatest harbor tanker.

Endelo Swan, 2007 and 328′ x 49′ is quite small ocean-going tanker.  She’s currently westbound in the English Channel between Antwerp and La Rochelle.

Stena Imperator, launched 2017 and measuring 600′ x 32′, seems to have quite elaborate crew quarters.  I have enough photos of her to do a profile, and maybe i will one of these days.

Hellespont Promise,  2007 and 748′ x 105′, is currently heading for the Caribbean.

NCC Reem,  2012  and 600′ x 105′, is currently upbound on the Mississippi just below St. James.

And finally, Eagle Hatteras measures 820′ x 144′, making her the same size as Kmarin Resolution.   Chemical Pioneer, 686′ x 98′ is the unique USShipping tanker that started her life as a container ship and may now be end the end of her life before the scrappers.  The tankers date from 2010 and 1968, respectively. Chemical Pioneer and Chandra B are the only Jones Act tankers in this post.

All photos, WVD, who misses way more tankers and other vessels than he catches.

 

Some names might be terrifying, like “This is Conqueror, approaching the Narrows.”  By the way, this vessel was here some years back as Energy Conqueror.  It seems sights and ambitions have broadened. 

Equally chilling though oxymoronic might be this one:  “Big Bang has anchored.”

A lot of vessels are named for birds, like ONE Stork and

Endelo Swan.  With a name like Swan, I’d expect a white hull.

Grand Eagle is hardly aquiline;  the bow might be more aquiline if they’d have consulted the folks at Ulstein.

Then there’s the occurrence of serial multiple names.  Can you make out the raised letter name that’s been painted over here?

Above is on the stern and below is high on the starboard bow.

Previously it was NYK Aphrodite.  Well . . . there once were temples to Greek goddess Aphrodite east of the Dardanelles, although I’m sure that has not an iota to do with the choice of new name.

Many thanks to eastriver for Big Bang.  All other photos and any lame jokes . . .  WVD.
