I’m off gallivanting around NYC and getting more Fleet Week photos, so I’m happy to put up some more of John Jedrlinic’s photos.

Let’s start with an unusual angle . . . it’s Smit Indusbank, built 1968 in the Netherlands.

Pelican II seems to have started life on the Vistula River, upstream from Gdansk, in 1993.  Now it’s working in Barbados.

Uraga Maru, 2005, has always worked in Japan and is currently in the Tokyo area.

St Lucaya, 1991, with that bow (visible better here)  you’d never mistake her for a vessel built in North America or Europe…  The same is true of Smit Tahiti, again, better visible here.

And finally, Midnight Chief is a small RORO  that would be right at home in San Juan PR harbor, where Midnight Coast could be a twin.

Thanks to Jed, who always comes up with the unusual and obscure,  for these photos.
