Mostly just photos sometimes, like today . . .

Wide Bravo dates from 2014.

 

BW Raven is a year newer.

Gustav Maersk must have seemed huge when she was launched in 2008 as Mette Maersk.

Finally, Cosco Shipping Camellia, 2018, wh knows how she’ll be viewed in 2028?

That bow surely spritzes up the water.

Looking, seeing . . . but not understanding makes me wonder if I’ve missed stuff before.  Am I dense, or is that something I don’t recall noticing before.  See it too?

Here’s the rest of the vessel with the (I believe) unusually high mast.  And as large as this bulk carrier is, she seems disproportionately small

as the ULCV passes behind her.  More on that ULCV in another post.

Below is what I meant by the initial question:  notice the yellow quarantine flag?  Is that common?  Is it required for all vessels needing to clear into the US after they arrive in the  sixth boro?  AIS showed that the Monrovia-flagged Alerce N was arriving here directly from Santiago Cuba, (CU-SCU) and that I believe is unusual.

As I said, I miss stuff because I don’t understand what I’m seeing.  And here’s another puzzling sight below . . .

does that mast seem strangely articulated?

It’s the forward mast on Gustav Maersk.  Is it possible that an extension top section has been added?

And since I’m professing a lot of ignorance today . . .does anyone have the definitive explanation for this hulk off Clason Point in the Bronx neighborhood of Shorehaven ?  Over a decade ago, jeff s commented as follows:  “its CHRISTINA or CRISTINA, a failed project…. to be an eatery in Philadelphia but abandoned.”  I’d still love to hear more.
