I’ve thought about using this title quite often, and I surely have a lot of candidates, my personal ones, to include here.

Know the tug(s) from the photo below?  Really the most seldom seen is the nearer one, the one with escape ropes mounted on either side of the wheelhouse egresses.

Pacific Dawn I last saw over six years ago here.  She tends to follow dredging projects, which might possibly have brought her in the other day. 

I’ve seen Delta a lot on AIS, but I believe I should consider her a “never seen” by me.  So voila!

Here she passes the seldom seen Ypapanti and the some to be no longer seen Pilot No. 1 New York.  I could be wrong about the last part of that statement.  

Delta also tends to follow dredging projects, it seems to me.

 

Have your own “seldom seen”?  Let me know.  All photos here in the past week, WVD.

An unlikely duo, and now separated . . .

Feng Huang Ao had no intention of being here . . . .

but it experienced an engine room fire over a month ago and was towed here for repairs.  Don’t those look like scorch marks?

LSD-51 aka Oak Hill has since left for missions unadvertised.

Ypapanti is a fairly new crude tanker . . .  .

Read this in case you wondered about the name . . .   “presentation of Christ.”  This angle here reminds me of the sentry boxes in San Juan.

Here’s a satellite grab of vessels waiting to be scrapped in Aliaga, Turkey.  See the three self-unloaders?

Ocean Delta is soon to arrive in Aliaga with a soon-to-be scrapped laker . . .

in tow, Manitoba, launched in 1966 in Collingwood ON, seen here a year ago at the Molson plant in Montreal. We in the US associate Molson with beer, but John Molson was the Robert Fulton of Canada.

I wonder if Ocean Delta herself will return . . . from Turkey, given that she flies the Jamaican flag.

At this same moment, Stephen B. Roman is heading under her own power to the breaking yards,

in Spain.  Later today she’ll be passing Gaspe.  What must this last ride be like?

A year ago I got this photo of the 1965-launch entering Oswego NY to discharge cement.

I always loved that logo!!  Here are previous Roman posts.
