Wind, cars ships and the M.V. Sea Wave...
Monday February 23, 2009 at 10:12 PM by Rod
It blew hard and steady all day from what seems to be mostly from the west but I was not keeping an eye on it so it may have swung around some... I wonder if it was as rough getting Cepheus Leader off the dock today as it was trying to land her last friday. I was able to get to Beavertail and get some nice distance shots of Triton Highway anchored near the M.V.Seawave and Energy Enterprise as well as shots of the departing Cepheus Leader as she headed out this afternoon. With Triton Highway, that makes 3 car ships within the span of 1 week. I am sure that these ships were ordered(for lack of a better term) many months ago, but I can't help but wonder if they are they dropping their regular full load or smaller loads, or are they they just continuing to get sent and the port has no choice but to make room for the cars anyway they can. I would like to think the economy is improving well enough that they have been able to to get the cars out of there but I am not holding my breath. if anyone has any thoughts that they can share about the questions I just posed, I would be very interested in hearing what they have to say... As for the Sea Wave. It is sad to see her there day after day as she just bides her time. I am told that she needs more repairs done but also that her current repair bill has yet to be paid hence the reason why she remains anchored at the Brenton Reef anchorage. I hope this will not turn into some long protracted "battle"(for lack of a better term) and as a result, the crew ends up suffering the most. Time will tell and i will be watching...
