Watching traffic recently was especially interesting, given the sky. Check the gloom around this outbound Moran tug. It’s Brendan Turecamo, I think. It’s headed out to bring in ZPMC’s Zhen Hua 10, featured yesterday. The deckhand on the stern is preparing the cables. The sky here conjures up the mood of Farley Mowat’s Grey Seas Under, a fantastic late winter read about salvage tugs 50+ years ago on the North Atlantic. Check these links here, here, and here for salvors.

Does the bulbous bow have something in common with the prow ram of a bireme or trireme? And isn’t the anchor quite like the eye on these ancient ships?

Just an illusion? Here’s another illusion. Doesn’t it appear this blue and white boat is attempting to drydock in an unusual location?
