Here was number 6 in this series. It occurred to me this afternoon to rename the whole series “weather overwater,” as a tip of the hat to Dr. Jeff Masters and his site. His 18-minute TED talk at the link with his name on it is worth the 18 minutes. And what do you imagine happens on and over sixth boro water on a day like this . . . ?
Cheyenne consolidates scrap,
Susana S, in the same location here a year ago, takes on bunkers. . .
. . . along with Stavanger Breeze.
Fishing goes on, and pilots
do their thing no matter the weather since 1694.
More bad weather coming . . . so what. Not that it’s easy, though.
I’ll use fotos from the past week, since the past two days have been darky and rainy. Penobscot Bay is called an ice-breaker, a mission not yet activated this season.
M/V Dynamic Striker–with an arresting name–probably wants to forget its high-speed chase on the Indian Ocean two years ago.
Susana S and (in the distance) Intrepid Canada await in the anchorage. Since that moment (Wednesday), Susana S has departed for points east and Intrepid Canada has move up Raritan Bay and into Arthur Kill.
Here Cosco Osaka departs the KVK, bound for sea, i.e., Boston and then maybe the Canal in Panama.
I’m guessing that every major port in the world sees a member of this fleet now and then, most looking like Bow Fortune here. For great fotos of these set, taken both onboard and from a distance, click here.
John B. still lies in a beached position, but yesterday Brian Nicholas rather than Sarah Ann attended crane barge Raritan Bay.
HanJin San Francisco left here a week ago, made a few stops headed south, and is now bound for the Canal. Previously I caught her here in late September this year.
Stena Primorsk–named for the largest Russian port on the Baltic–has lingered in the harbor for the better part of a month now, occasionally giving the impression she’s outbound somewhere distant.
Two weeks til winter . . . and we’ve not yet seen a frost locally.
