You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘PCTC Topeka’ tag.

On most vessels, the color orange is reserved for safety gear;  on others, like

Topeka and Torm Freya it’s the main act.

Other variations of orange as dominant color appear in the harbor as well . . .

like the Staten Island ferries.

The color orange has many other associations in the month of October . . . like leaf color and pumpkins.

Note the difference in visibility here between the departing RORO Topeka and the inbound Atlantic Salvor.

Here were Topeka and an identical fleetmate Totugas back in March.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp.  Here’s another Torm Freya post.  More “orange” tomorrow.

Unrelated:  Thanks to EuroFred for passing along this Youtube that involved a RO-FLO (roll on/float off), three speciality vessels, the orange mud of Surinam, and 608 tires in a story that could be called “cutter head Fitzcarraldo,”  and those are two separate links.
