Tightrope?

 

This ULCV shows 17 containers across.

It’s a bit surprising to see a Moran 6000 on starboard bow, also on a “tight rope.”

YM Evolution . . . without counting the rows of containers, does it look less beamy?

It is  . . . 15 across.  By contrast, CMA CGM Amerigo Vespucci, the other day here, carries 20 across.

All photos, WVD.

 

Port Shanghai just happens these days to be in a berth on Staten Island

discharging salt from Chile.

I know what this says, but I can’t claim to read it until I study Greek.

Thor Integrity I CAN read, but

until I know Thai, I can’t vouch for “Thor Integrity” being a translation.

Chinese is a common language in the sixth boro,

 

and it’s interesting which writing systems do not appear here . . .  too many to name.

All photos, WVD.

Lest someone think all container ships built these days or calling in the sixth boro are ULCVs, consider YM Evolution.  She was launched less than 10 years ago and has a teu capacity less than 5000.  The company is based in Taiwan.

I’ve seen Ebony Ray before, but this is the first time I post a photo.  She was launched in 2008 and is part of the Ace Tankers fleet. 

Nord Chesapeake (2016) needed to be lightened before she proceeded up river to Coeymans.  Note the USCGC Katherine Walker in the distance?

Cronus Leader is an NYK RORO.  To see the “insides” of a vessel like this, click here. For a NYTimes article on cat/truck/etc. ships, click here. For more on this vessel and other “vehicle carriers”, click here.

Denak Voyager is a regular calling in the sixth boro.  She moves scrap metals primarily from here to Turkey these days.

I would never have expected a juice carrier like Orange Sun to be a regular in world ports, but New York has very few orange groves, and given the thirst folks like me have for the juice, juice carriers bring the supply.

 

 

And finally, New Ability is an example of the crude oil carriers that call here.  Since I took this photo, she has departed the sixth boro for Mexico, likely to load more crude.

. . . as in  boarding party, which might never be pleasant for anyone, but it goes with the enterprise.

YM Evolution was coming in the other day with New Jersey to port, and

 

lots of coasties descending starboard.

 

When I say lots, I mean two

boats

full.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, who although unrelated, is recalling that sojourn that a container ship spent in Philly earlier this year.  Meanwhile,  MSC Gayane has been bailed out and is currently in Chile…

Here are some of the rules for boarding.  And no doubt, some of you have seen this dramatic boarding of a sub on the high seas.
