Here was a precedent.

Sugar Express .  . . I’ve seen and posted about you before here, here, and in other places.

Arabian Sea–where’s Sea Robin, previously on this route?– stood by with the barge while

another–Jonathan–was offloaded over at the ASR Group facility in Yonkers.  ASR Group is the contemporary name for a series of companies and mergers going back to the 18th century.

As crew on the barge watch, clamshells of sugar  lift from the hold.  See the crane operator in the blue t-shirt?

My guess . . .  10 tons per scoop?

My conjecture is that some of this sugar comes from operations owned by the Fanjul family.
