This photo of aframax BW Thalassa I took on Friday.  Note the green BW slash about a third of the shiplength back from the bow. 

Here’s a photo from Saturday, 24 hours later, after rain and fog have moved in.  Note the green BW slash on the tanker beyond the Evergreen ship?

Ever Focus appears to have a maximum load aboard as she speeds toward Colon PA.  A bit beyond Ambrose, AIS showed her at 19.2 kts, 22 mph.

See the Manhattan skyline?  Not much.  A few outlines appears along the shore of Manhattan, but nothing more shows.  The new Janice Ann Reinauer is among the tug/barge units anchored there.

Bruce A. heads for a job,

as do Miriam and Helen.

CL Christina was inbound for Claremont, but again, fog obscured the bright shiny detail.  Of course, the scrap loaded in Claremont has no bright shiny detail either.

All photos, WVD, who finds the fog frustrating even though it was around 50 degrees F, but this is how the harbor looks sometimes.

Unrelated:  I just finished Shadow Divers, an account of the discovery of a U-boat wreck 60 miles off Point Pleasant.  It’s a compelling read.  It turns out there’s a counter-narrative also, Shadow Divers Exposed by Gary Gentile. 

When I started this blog, Evergreen presented itself in the sixth boro with their D class.  Then they added size and capacity with their L class.  Today for the first time,

I saw an F class, Ever Focus.  I can imagine subsequent ships called Faith, Fruitful, Frugal, Friendly . . .  really I’m just guessing.    Below, it appears more structure has been added to prevent losing containers overboard.

 

The superstructure seems much more compact, yielding space for a payload.

I’ve read this vessel has entered service in 2020; we’ve seen quite a number of brand-spanking boats arrive here this year, such as the Hyundai and Seaspan boats.

Someone more knowledgeable than me might explain why it appeared only one engine is operating.

BOLO . . . the next F class Evergreen boat.  The F class, though new, is by no means Evergreen’s largest.  They’ve already completed several of the G class:  Ever Golden, Ever Goods . . .  These come in a 20,000 teu and 1312′ x 194′ . . . .  There’s a lot of stuff being moved around the ocean, mostly in the direction of the “advanced” countries.

All photos, WVD.

How about a tale of the tape for the ones that have served NYC:  D class boats are Panamax:  964′ x 105′ and 4711 teu.  L class come in at 1099′ x 151′ and 8452 teu.  This F boat is 1096′ x 157′ but somehow  . . . 11850 teu.
