Federal Oshima looks nice with South Pier Light

The Federal Oshima came into port last Friday (above) and is expected to depart today taking wheat to Naples. The Ziemia Cieszynska may also depart, taking soy beans to Northern Europe. The Ypermachos is expected to finally come into port this morning from the outside anchorage, probably around 8 am. This is the former Socrates so if you are down by the ship canal when it comes in, look closely at the name plate on the side of the ship. The raised letters of Socrates are visible. Three thousand footers will be loading coal at Midwest Energy Resources, but there may be a line since only one can load at a time. Photo taken on November 24, 2007
