January 1 glides in as some folks pay attention to dropped things like balls and quite unusual and unexpected other items.  In fact, in a few weeks media will be mentioning balls in bowls ad nauseum.

My surprise on my new year’s morning jaunt was that two tankers side by side sported baskets.  See it on Stolt Efficiency, painted on the homeport backstop.  Presumably, halftime would include drinks served on the picnic table.

 

The angle is not as favorable here, but Stena Penguin also had a basket through which balls might drop.

The back to back ships seemed to beg for crew to compete, but first they’d have to move the tankers stern to stern and each team post some of their crew on the other vessel’s deck.  I don’t think this will catch on.

Silver Philippa appeared to have no basket.

Nor did Arctic Flounder or

the revelatory vessel Single.

Single what?!

Overnight, though, a whole new set of ships arrived in the port, as some of these tankers departed, possibly to away games?

Here was 2, nearly three years ago.  I could also call this “some of the parts,” which is what I show . . . and you guess the rest.

We start with an easy one;  answer will be clear once you get through a half dozen or so.

The ladders are distinctive.

I airbrushed out the first name.

If you were out on the sixth boro today, you might know these next ones.

The gray one is Newtown Creek.

Not the same vessel as above.  Note the light at the Narrows far right.

Purrty sail!  And then the answers.

Top one was the schooner Pioneer.

And here’s the prize for putting up with my format:  America 2.0 heeling over in the stiff breeze of the Upper Bay this afternoon.
