Today’s post recognizes the variety of ships calling in the sixth boro.  Like a bulker Medi Astoria,

cement self-unloader NACC New Yorker,

a very large but not quite VLCC crude carrier Sonangol Cabinda,

small bulker Century Dream,

crude tanker Bergitta,

[I wonder how coating damage like this happens.]

a 6500 teu Maersk Sembawang named for a district in Singapore,

a 9500 teu Ever Lyric,

a 14,000 teu CMA CGM A. Adams,

and another 14,000 teu ONE Apus.  As to ONE Apus, she’s currently at Global terminals, but I took this photo back in May 2019.   I believe this is her first return to the sixth boro after her loss of almost 2000 containers in the Pacific late last year.

All photos, WVD.

In whjat must be record time for a ULCV, J. Adams arrived Saturday midday and has already departed.
