Xin Hai Niu in the evening . . . Guanabara Bay sees some interesting vessels, even if I can’t get the best fotos.

This may be my last post for awhile, as I might be traveling away from a connection.

Here’s a youtube on how Seven Oceans  was built and first operated.  Here’s info on the company.

This is a view of JR’s harbor mouth as seen from Copacabana on a foggy winter’s morning.  Note the silhouette of the vessel entering.

Running in and out the harbor’s mouth all day is dredger  Xin Hai Niu, above seen at sunrise and below seen in late afternoon from inside the harbor at   Flamenco Beach.

Here’s a wider view of the mouth as seen from the inside . . . as unidentified Bram and Camorim vessels enter.

Camorim’s Atlantico light and outbound passes the Santa Cruz fortress that makes up the eastern side of the Narrows.

A pilot boat enters . . . again Santa Cruz in the background.

Complement to Santa Cruz on the west side of the mouth is Forta da Ilha da Lage.

All fotos yesterday by Will Van Dorp, who needs to study Portuguese today.

I think this is Xin Hai Niu with starboard dredge at work.  In the background on shore is the support arm of Alexandre Chan’s cable-stayed Bridge of Knowledge.

From far to near, Sea Leopard and Skandi Flamenco.  Unidentified Camorim tugs in the foreground.

To show the scale of Guanabara Bay, the container vessel arriving–CMA CGM Opal–is 850′ loa.   That’s Sugar Loaf in the distance.

Seisranger is 20 years old, but I’ve never seen a vessel like it.

I know this foto–taken from a bus with windows that don’t open is a tad blurry, but . . .  Bos Topazio.

0aaaaaap7

The huge crane is Pelicano 1.  Tankers are unidentified.  I believe the supply vessel might be Santos Rotation . . . but not sure.

0aaaaaap8

Here’s a closer view.  Blue hull is Maersk Fetcher.
