Call this one a triple whatzit, my series driven by the watch word “if you see something, say  (or post) something.

I’ll just put up the photos, and then say what I know or don’t know.

Below, I don’t know but think it’s

a lifeboat drill performed while Anthem of the Seas was in town the other day.

I know the vessel as the one that’s been studying

sharks around the world, most recently off Montauk and southern New England.  Here’s their site.  I don’t know if they are studying sharks in the sixth boro.

And this final one, I don’t know but  am wondering if this might be part of a future Marine One fleet, doing

test landings the other day.  Here’s more on that.

Here was 17.  Short post today, with one foto only from l’amica dalla torre,  who treats me sometimes with sights my eyes miss.    Like this vessel below, which showed up on AIS as Ocean, but

0aaaaoce

in fact is known as Ocearch.  Here and here are some links to its organization and mission.  Here’s a link showing a great white on deck.

I’m no idea why they’re in the North River.  Maybe they heard this vessel (fourth foto)  had been in the sixth boro?

My plan this morning had been to get fotos if an assemblage of Miss Emily, Miss Gloria, and Charleston were still in Gravesende Bay, but by daybreak, they’d disappeared, at least from AIS.

L’amica . . . grazie.
