And finally, I put this photo here because of a boat in the background.  Is that Kristy Ann Reinauer (1962)?  I thought she was scrapped half a year ago already.  Hmm.

Other boats here are L. to r.) Realist, Kristy Ann, Hubert Bays, Long Splice, Samantha Miller, Stephen B, and Hunt Girls, which has been in the yard there for (?) two years now?

Here from five years ago was 2.   And from four years ago, here’s the last time (I think) I featured MOL Efficiency.   I wonder how many  hundreds of thousands of sea miles and dollars of cargo she’s moved since then.

But yesterday,  . .  that was Torm Ismini at the dock and McAllister Sisters on the bow of the MOL ship.

And to take care of all ID’s first . . . that’s Hubert Bays in the distance.  But look at Robert E. McAllister . . .

Unrelated Q:  There is a major player in heavy lift and project cargoes named BBC Chartering.  What do the letters BBC expand to in this case?  I’m asking because I do not know . . .

Small indie tugs need character maybe? Can you beat the color of Jenny Anne and Hubert Bays? Do you suppose fashion designers seek inspiration here?
