ROROS of various sorts you can find here.  But let’s take three that have called in the sixth boro during this month.  These are three of many more.  See if you can rank them by age and size.    It should be fairly easy.  The three are Polaris Highway,

Paganella (which I erroneously thought was Pagan Ella),

and Grande Halifax.  In the photo below, see the three tugboats, of which only one was assisting.  Grande New York first arrived here in spring 2018, where the christening occurred.

So again . . . size and age, age and size.   A ”  Highway” sister vessel arrived here in fog a few years back.

 

 

Here are some details, like cooling water from the bow thruster,

port of registry,

and bow. 

And the results, by size, small to large, it’s Paganella, Grande Halifax, Polaris Highway.  By age, old to new, it’s Paganella, Polaris Highway, Grande Halifax. Paganella dates from 2009, Polaris, 2017, and Grande, 2018. 

Polaris Highway, a K Line pure car truck carrier,  encloses parking for 7500 CEUs (car equivalent units).    Think this way, a standard car has dimensions, but if the vessel is transporting trucks, the actual number will be different.

Grande Halifax, a Grimaldi vessel, has capacity of 6700 CEUs.

Paganella, named for an Italian mountain, is the oldest of the F. Laeicz line, and is rated at 5000 CEUs, still quite the number of cars.
