It’s been a while, since 32.

Bowsprite caught Genco Progress headed upriver on Dec 27.  Today the Hong Kong-registered vessel is in  . . . Honduras.

Here . .  she photographed Oslo Bulk 5 also heading north.  Today the Singapore-flagged bulkier is passing Miami bound for the other side of Florida.

You might remember a similar photo of Orange Ocean last week from Fort Wadsworth.  Right now the Liberia-flagged juice carrier is at sea bound for the juice port of Santos. Here are some other juice carriers.

Last Tuesday this Liberia-flagged parcel tanker was in the Kills;  today Stolt Capability‘s in the Mississippi.

And finally for now, a week ago Honk Kong-flagged MOL Expeditor had lost power departing Ambrose Channel;  today she’s traversing the Panama Canal for the Pacific, and if marine traffic is to be believed, bound for Pangani.  Pangani?  Might someone have punched the wrong info into the device?  Someone’s wishful thinking, perhaps?

Don’t ask me, I’m just the photographer, as is bowsprite when she’s not an illustrator.  Thanks to her for the first two photos.

 

Thank the verizon gods for internet service after a few more days’ drought.  Click here for previous snowy posts.

I think today was the snowiest day yet in the sixth boro.  So I hope you enjoy watching Orange Ocean emerge from the “particle fog.”

Orange Ocean is a new sighting for me, bringing in my favorite commodity.

I missed Donjon’s Yankee leave town this morning, but I did catch Marie J Turecamo pivot Stolt Capability.  Click here to see tug fax photo of Yankee in Halifax a few day back.  Please get in touch if you got any Yankee photos .. . I’m that kind of a Yankee fan.

MOL Expeditor remianed in the Lower Bay anchorage for some time after losing power on the outbound run last night.  Losing power in the narrow Ambrose Channel must be a terrifying experience.

Like I said earlier, I missed Yankee, but I caught Frances coming in the Narrows, and passing a vessel with the unlikely name . . .

I know I skipped “C,” but my editor lets me do anything I want . . . like rearrange alphabetical in order.  For the record, I have already gone to “C”  (pun intended) and will return but feel excited today to do “D” first.  Thanks to all for your comments/corrections/clarifications . . . I responded in a megacomment to the left.

Question answered at the end of this post:  how many National Parks find themselves in NYC and how much area do they cover?

“D”is for details.  I’d soon atrophy and die if I were sensorily-deprived and unable to seek details.  Like the canoe on Justine‘s boat . . . er . . . canoe deck.  Guess the manufacturer?

aaaad1 Coleman!  I imagine my little car underneath it, and how much of the canoe would extend forward and back of the cabin roof.  Check out a canoe post sent along recently by Kennebeck here.  I’m eager for some canoeing this summer.  Kennebeck own site here echoes Peter’s invite to Dickmas;  only a little over three weeks remain til Dickmas.  Are you ready??

Yesterday’s post had full frontal on Stolt Capability;  up above the tank is their Yokohama in the case  . . .  there’s interest in a tubing party at sea.  If you haven’t already, check out Bowsprite’s reflections of prototypes for Yokohamas.  On those prototypes,  wonder how this is dealt with in Taiji.

Another look at the bulb of Ever Radiant;  ….and I always thought these fairly common marks resulted from props in the wrong place.

aaaad3

I just happened to catch Ever Radiant coming into the sixth boro 18 hours before;  based on the percentage of bulb exposed in each, I’d wager she left lighter than she was upon arrival.

aaaaadxxr

Falcon . .  always that low in the water . .  full of fuel?

aaaad4

Exercise equipment  . . . or auxilliary power?

aaaad5

Cruise ships . . . crews think . . . glad there’s no brightwork . . . or brass to polish or

aaaad6

Oops!

aaaad7

Is it just me  not noticing this type  of detail before . . . looking like human curves or the pouch of a lady slipper?  Any guess where it’s located?

aaaad8

It’s the hawse of barge Charleston.

aaaad81

Finally, here’s a shore detail I’ve long wondered about:  east bank of the Hudson just north on New Hamburg is the Tilcon Quarry at Clinton Point . . . it looks like a stupa or temple.  Anyone know more about it.

aaaad9

Two more details:  I’ve shouted out Mitch’s “Newtown Pentacle” blog recently; let me do it again with his post about a seaplane landing on Newtown Creek.  That’s right . . . that Newtown Creek.  Maybe some fisherman decided to do the NYC Creek this year rather than the Allagash.  I wrote about a similarly delightful landing on the East River a spell back.

Last but certainly not least:  The answer is 10 Parks and 27,000 acres.  In these days of ubiquitous iPods, National Parks of New York Harbor Conservancy has put together an interesting partnership between the National Park Service and other entities to create downloadable podcasts/maps to guide your way around NYC.  Check out their boat tours and walking tours here.

Also, if you VOTE in NYC, here’s a public service announcement from the “mayor of Coney Island, the man behind the mermaid parade.”

One more from Bernie:  turtles close runway at JFK!!

After posting yesterday, many other ideas related to attachment came to mind, but I’ve rejected returning for a second A for now.  Let’s move on to B, as in bow, and today there seems to be no sprites.  Some bows seen head on so resemble faces that no figurehead is needed.  Behold Ever Radiant, eyes resolutely downcast, focused, bound for sea from whence she came less than 24 hours before.  And what looks like a tiny tongue

aaadb2

in profile turns huge.

aaadb3

Stolt Capability, too, bow . . . like a face albeit that of a distinctly  marine mammal.  I know a bulb protrudes somewhere below the surface.

aaadb4What fountain spurts forth from bow portside of MSC Dartford?

aaadb6

I wonder about the condition of the prop that spun over the bulb of Ever Refine, leaving the design.

aaadb7

Foreshortening operates here, but I don’t think I’d keep fishing if my runabout were this close to King Edwin’s bow wave.  The little white boat is going to rock.

aaadb8

In parting, a question:  Vane Brothers’ new Bohemia here  (Is that pronounced Bo-hemia or Bow-hemia?)

aaaabcxxx

sashays out of the KVK with Doubleskin 51 on the hip.  The notch says the barge is stern forward, but given that it throws off a “bow” wave, in nomenclature would the notch for now be in the bow of the barge?  I’m guessing the answer is negative.  So would it throw off a “stern” wave?

aaadb9

So much more could be said of bows, but just not now.
