There’s something unusual about the vessel coming in with the assistance of Miriam Moran. See what it is?

Maybe I should say this vessel is a veritable unicorn.  Thai script is unusual.

I read the Thai writing system is based on Old Khmer.

She draws a little over 20′ if I read this right.

The PSL expands to Precious Shipping Line, based in Bangkok.  They operate 40 vessels, including 31 handysize, which includes Nalinee Naree. I don’t recall seeing another PSL vessel in the sixth boro.

Now you wouldn’t expect a Thai vessel to be registered in Majuro or Valetta or Monrovia, although . . . .

 

It’s the cargo stanchions that make this bulk carrier unusual.  See above and below the rectangular structures around the outboard side of the deck.  I’m quite sure she didn’t head into Port Newark to load logs, so they must be permanently installed.  To see what can go wrong with the stanchions in rough weather, click here. According to this article, Nalinee Naree would therefore be called a logger.

All photos, WVD, who wrote about loggers once before here, albeit from the other side of the continent.

Happy August.
