Spring, for a few more weeks, means it’s no longer winter.  Warmer temperatures bring mariners out, to clean glass,

to plan the docking procedure,

to flake out the lines,

to retireve the boom . . . although these boom guys have to be out all year round, as do all the crew above.

Spring temperatures just make it more pleasant to stay out,

on the way to work,

catching fresh air,

or just contemplating all the oceans this cargo vessel has already transited and will still transit in future months.

All photos recently, WVD.

 

Let’s start with a routine KVK scene:  l to r, an orange tanker with a neon green stack, a Poling unit, and escort tug Ava M.

Compare Fort Schuyler‘s  green and Kimberly Poling‘s green. 

But then the frame contains only Kimberly and Kristin.

It’s possible that Kimberly was going to do an assist for her fleet sister. 

But it made for an fleet shot.

 

All photos, WVD.
