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.
Lightering from Ocean Chariot onto The Patriot goes on uninterrupted by the brisk wind out of the north . . . gusts to 20 mph . . . . It’s just another
day on the sixth boro. Stavanger Bell gets a call from the Miller service boat. In the background skyline, note the “V” shaped twin cranes . . . . yup . . . . that’s the current height of building at One World Trade Center.
Here are two other shots of Stavanger Bell with Scott C (?)
Also at anchor, Genmar Concord awaits a provisioning visit from
the unique, the peerless, the siblingless Twin Tube.

Fog . . . it’s fickle, patchy, and blinding. Even with radar, I imagine it causes stress. Count the tugboats below. Follow the lights and you get two: Patapsco and Wicomico from right to left. Easter morning 645 am at IMTT.
Same place, 745. I think the vessel is Maryland.
Same location. 800 am. Meagan Ann, whom you saw here in snow now just barely a month ago. Fog forms in warm land air (75 Sunday) over cold water.
Patapsco over by LaFarge silos (now fog-shortened) near Hess Bayonne, as seen from IMTT. 830 am. Note: Hess Bayonne is less than a mile to the east of IMTT, where earlier fotos were taken.
Eastbound Ivory Coast at IMTT. 900 am.
Westbound Ivory Coast, near Hess Bayonne, at 930 am, half an hour later than the previous shot.
Eastbound Stephen Scott, near Hess Bayonne, around 940.
Westbound tanker Ionian Wave, escorted by Brendan Turecamo just before 1000. Note the Monitor-like appearance of the Staten Island ferry.
