In several hours yesterday, a diverse set of vessels came by.  I could begin with Chemical Pioneer, a 1968 vessel that’s been calling here in some form for half a century.  She first called here as a container ship, until  her big fire.

As Chemical Pioneer was assisted into a berth in Bayonne, an MSC vessel came in,

MSC Vittoria.

She was followed by a tanker, Hellespont Promise, about the same vintage as the MSC ship.

A 2012 ULCV was next, the 13k teu Cosco Hope.

 

As Hope departed, two other vessels came in, each a different sort from what has preceded in this post. 

Here Grimaldi’s 2017 Grande Torino passes Chemical Pioneer,

followed by 2014 bulk carrier Genco Weatherly, under a beautiful sky.

Two months ago, Weatherly was in Turkey, no doubt discharging scrap metal and she’s likely here to reload.

All photos, WVD, who feels fortunate to have a chance to see this variety in just a few hours sitting by the dock of the bay.
