The gentleman in lower right had just cast his bait way out there . . . .

I was remarking about how unusual it is to see this type of MSC in the anchorage here.

But there she is, along with a smaller fishing boat.

And she was not alone.

The flag says this one’s French.  Forbin is a frigate whose namesake was once “grand admiral of Siam.”

But Forbin was not alone either:  beyond was

 

Niterói class frigate Brasil, U-27, a training vessel.

For some previous naval vessels from Brasil, click here.

What might cause them to be here?  My device . . . source of everything . . . has the answer:  the French at least are fishing.   OK.  End of story the device says so, eh?  So the story follows from here?

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who previously posted photos of USNS Charlton

here.

And as a postscript, Phil Gibson writes and sends along this photo:  “Here USNS Charlton appeared [two days before] on Thursday, Nov. 2, 2017 at 10:53 hours from the Brooklyn side of the Narrows on a foggy morning.”
