I’m still not over how large these vessels are.  Note the two Moran tugs off the stern of ONE Minato.

As for numbers, she’s 1200′ x 167′.  They’re all approximately this length, which is roughly what the Empire State Building is without its spire.  She has capacity of 13,900 teu.  She was built near Hiroshima in 2018.  Currently she’s off Algeria and heading for the sixth boro, eta August 21.

CS Jasmine is the same length as ONE Minato, but at 157′ is 10 feet less broad.

Her capacity is 13,500 teu.  She was built in Shanghai in 2018.  Currently she’s eastbound in the Pacific, expected to arrive at the Panama Canal on August 22.

CS Rose is basically identical to CS Jasmine.  She’s expected to arrive in her sixth boro berth on August 19, ie, next week.

 

Hyundai Pride has the same dimensions as CS Jasmine and Rose.

Pride is currently in Busan, not far from where she was built in 2014.   Her capacity is 13,500 teu.

There are more to come, but for now we end with YM Witness.  By the numbers, she’s 1207′ x 167′, carrying capacity of 13,800 teu.  She was built in 2015 in Ulsan, not far north of Busan on South Korea’s SE coast.

She’s currently heading for Vietnam from China, passing Hong Kong.

These are not the largest container ships currently afloat.  HMM Dublin, appearing quite similar to Hyundai Pride,  is 1312′ x 200′ and has a carrying capacity of 23000 teu and is currently underway between Rotterdam and Singapore around Cape of Good Hope, a 24-day voyage.

Today is the 100th anniversary of the Jones Act.  I hope folks who believe the Jones Act should be repealed read this and inform themselves.  A good place to start is here, a well-written editorial from gCaptain from a few years ago.

Sunshine State, one of five tankers managed by Crowley, is an example of a Jones Act tanker.  That means it was built in the US, and crewed by US mariners.

Atlantic Sea, 2016 launched in Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding, is a non-Jones Act vessel.

Maersk Tukang was built in Korea in 2008, and registered in Singapore.

ONE Minato and Constellation arrive together via the Ambrose Channel.  The 2018 ONE vessel was both built and registered in Japan. Constellation, 2006, was built in China and registered in Marshall Islands.

Mandalay, 2019, carries Singapore registry.  I’ve been unable to find where she was built, but my guess is China.

Zim Vancouver, 2007 built in Dalian CN, and registered in Haifa.

Torm Sublime, registered in Copenhagen, was built in Nansha, CN 2019.

Maersk Kleven, built in Denmark in 1996,  registered in Liberia. Assisting are Ava and Capt. Brian, both Jones Act.

All photos, WVD, who is the first to admit that as important as the Jones Act is, the decisions of flagging are complex.

like route 66, this gets me kicks . . . although I see no ” St. Louis, Joplin, Missouri, Oklahoma City looks oh-mighty pretty.  You’ll see Amarillo, a-Gallup, New Mexico, Flagstaff, Arizona, don’t forget Winona, Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino….”

But I digress.  In the distance it’s Glorious Leader and closer up–not much–it’s Bitu Express getting a delivery from Twin Tube.  What is the purpose of that large rectangular structure over the stern of Bitu Express?  My guess would be a heating system of some sort . . .

One a dark, rainy, too-late morning of March 10, it’s good to go back a day and see ONE Minato in morning sunlight, in

homeport registered in Kobe,

Where would Lian Gui Hu be registered do you suppose?

 

Monaco Bridge . . .  yes there are bridges in Monaco, but this ULCV is registered in Panama.

 

You’d maybe expect Maersk Callao to be Peru-flagged, but  . . . hey, maybe Singapore has a Calle Callao or Avenida Callao.   That’s Potomac with a barge lightening alongside.

And Evergreen Ever Loading . . .  London?

Torm Hilde . . .  you’d think Copenhagen or even Aalborg…

Stolt Integrity  . . .  Georgetown!??  Practically every state in the US has a town by that name, and Indiana–in fact–has FOUR!!  An’ dis aint nun a dems!

All the color in this post remind me of a CV I’ve not seen in a while . . . Buffalo Hunter.

All photos and humor–attempted–by Will Van Dorp, who thinks there should be a route 66-parallel song for shipping in the sixth boro.   Enya has one that starts to get at it . . .

Happy short day . . .
