Tightrope?

 

This ULCV shows 17 containers across.

It’s a bit surprising to see a Moran 6000 on starboard bow, also on a “tight rope.”

YM Evolution . . . without counting the rows of containers, does it look less beamy?

It is  . . . 15 across.  By contrast, CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci, the other day here, carries 20 across.

Faber Park aka the swimming pool has become one of my favorite places to watch the behemoths pass.The next set of photos I took in about 10 minutes.

I’m in awe of the skills involved . . . navigation and communication.

This is a tight turn.

Four tugboats–Ellen, Rowan, Capt. Brian, and Eric–keep it in the channel and the track such that two of these ships can negotiate the turn.

 

And they make it look routine.
