Random, but mostly a celebration of orange.  Click here and you’ll see how obsessive i’ve been about these juice tankers.  More even than about wine tankers, which I’ve no knowledge of ever seeing.  Milk tankers, you ask?  Well, if you mean the ones that travel from farm to processing/bottling plant, I’m familiar with them but no pics.

Shanghai Trader came in the same day.

Orange Sun, operated by Atlanship SA, was involved in an incident near here back in 2008.

Stealth Berana, here with Scott Turecamo and New Hampshire lightering, seems to have undergone a name-change recently.

Back to the juice tanker, it seems that fewer than a dozen of these vessels carry one-fourth of the world supply!

Here’s another shot of Caroline Oldendorff with ABC-1 at stern starboard quarter and Nicholas Miller passing along port.  Go, Nicholas.

Aleuropa is another operator of juice tankers.  Carlos Fischer is one of their vessels.

Zim Tarragona is named for an ancient port.

A juice tanker called Southern Juice was renamed to the last three letters of its name  “ICE” for its trip to Bangladesh breakers beach.  See the story here on p. 19/20.

The salt bulker Aghia Skepi is named for a Greek Orthodox holy day.

Finally, Orange Sun  . . . you’d think it would have an orange hull, like the Staten Island ferry in the background, right?

If you have a lot of free time, you can trace this back to the first installment.

And finally, I put this photo here because of a boat in the background.  Is that Kristy Ann Reinauer (1962)?  I thought she was scrapped half a year ago already.  Hmm.

Other boats here are L. to r.) Realist, Kristy Ann, Hubert Bays, Long Splice, Samantha Miller, Stephen B, and Hunt Girls, which has been in the yard there for (?) two years now?

. . . upon.  That’s what happened when I was just minding my own business the other day . . . and a voice calls my name and “Be careful.  I could have thrown you to the fishes,” he said, before showing this photo below.

Getting USNS Red Cloud,  Helen Laraway, Andrea, and Sea Wolf into a single frame had been my aim just seconds before.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

No matter.  Here goes Lucy Reinauer pushing RTC 83.

Morgan Reinauer and

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Amberjack and

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Scott Turecamo with barge New Hampshire.  And more.

And maybe getting kept upon and thrown to the fishes . . . might just work out alright, although watch out for shadowy characters like the lurker over there.

It made me think about a day a mere 100 or so days from now when photographers photographing get photographed themselves.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Happy leap day.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here’s what I put up last leap year.

All photographs here–except the obvious two–by Will Van Dorp.

 

Before dawn the day of the race, daily port activities carried on:  Atlantic Niyala awaited load shift in Red Hook.

Celebrity Summit arrived from sea for some port time here assisted by  Kimberly Turecamo (?).

Scott Turecamo awaited some rehab

at Caddell’s.

As passengers debarked to starboard, equipment received attention to port.  I’m not sure what all is happening over on the port side here.

Up at the Manhattan passenger terminal Veendam received Tuckahoe  attention to port as well as passengers transferred from ship to island.

All fotos by Will Van Dorp, who heads for the Roundup tomorrow.
