Before looking through this set of a half dozen (out of several dozen or more) tankers that have called in the sixth boro in recent weeks, check out this classification of tankers by size, e.g., handy v. aframax .  . and more.

I’ll let you decide how to classify them.  Elandra Willow, 2019, and 49999 dwt.

Pantelis, 2004, 114500 dwt.

Sven, 2010, 51703 dwt.

 

Marlin Ametrine, 2015, 50000 dwt.

She’s being lightered by Gracie M. Reinauer.

Swan Dignity, 2017, 12661 dwt

Maersk Tokyo, 2016, 49687 dwt. 

VLCCs and ULCCs do not call in the sixth boro.   Suezmax call here infrequently.

All photos, WVD.

 

When the temperatures drop and days are short, tug and barges units in the NE get busier than in summer.

RTC 42 here gets pushed by Franklin Reinauer, as Gracie-above–waits at the dock with RTC 109.

 

A bit later, J. George Betz moves her barge B. No. 210 toward the east.

Navigator appears from the east with her barge.

 

Barney moves Georgia toward a Bayonne dock, with assistance from Mary.

 

And Curtis comes in with RTC 81 for more product.

 

All photos by Will Van Dorp, currently in the state of Georgia, but a few days back when I took these, needed some of that fuel to stay warm. Here from 2007 was my first post by this name.

This Bob Hill OT/B creation juxtaposes well with the ever-changing skyline of lower Manhattan, as seen from the East River.

Meredith C. is timing her eastbound trip with a fair tide through the Gate.

Catching the same tide, it’s Evening Star.

Farther SW, Gracie M. makes her way around Bergen Point.

Evening Breeze is a Bouchard new build, only recently arrived here.

On this sunny morning, Janet D pushes a Hughes construction barge past

an inbound scrap bulker.

And in closing, notice the soft spring colors of the trees along the KVK as

Dylan Cooper pushes her barge into the Upper Bay.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, whose energy level is rising along with the outdoor temperatures.
