Low bridge, lower air draft, refrigeration box on the cargo area, hand cart loaded with boxes . . . that’s how your food and drink must be delivered in Venice. Notice in white letters forward on the reefer box . . . “order and delivery” in Italian.

Here are two more such cold delivery boats.

As to the green groceries . . . you pick what you want from the shelves of this boat.  Bumboats they’d be in some places.  Parlevinkers in other places.  I’m not sure what they call the boats at floating markets on the Mekong, or what the Italian word for these is . . . .

 

Then there are the water buses and taxis.

 

And if I’m not mistaken, this is the dock that provides transport between the Marco Polo Airport and  town.  Note the luggage.  Also, note the location of the radar.

 

And where there’s people, law enforcement is needed as well. The photo below comes thanks to Tommy Bryceland.

All other photos come thanks to Jonathan Steinman.

And I truly need to plan a trip to Venice, along with lots of other places.

Here was 17.  Names could be raw material for the poetry of any harbor.  Like yesterday morning, there was the encounter of Euro-splash . . . . Venice meets Paris Express.

Thanks to amica for her dusk/dawn pics.  Currently King Barley is in town over at Port Newark.  I’d love it if someone got of foto of her transiting out.   I wonder if that vessel in Port Newark has any connection with this small vessel from the Czech Republic . . .

First, in case you missed the links Lazer One put in the comments section of Arctic Shuttle Tanker, including his profile drawing of that cold weather tanker, check them here.  I’ve also added Lazer One to my links list.

In the foto below, mirage-hovering on the horizon today . . . can you identify the company by color scheme?

Spray from hawse rinse (if that’s the term) has settled on the bow of Nord Intelligence  before she left port today.

She was in the sixth boro about six months back.  To see where she’s been since, click here.

Tanker Venice, before heading out today . . . it looked like she was steam-cleaning her manifold.
