Sunshine Ace Departing Autoport. As she left, the sun came out.
Onego Ponza Arriving to birth at Pier 27
OOCL Hong Kong Spent an hour in the inner harbour yesterday afternoon, presumably due to an issue with bridge clearances. OOCL Vessels usually pass with 2-3m (6-9′) of clearance, so a particularly high tide could delay passage. Checking the Tide Tables for yesterday, the Tide was ebbing (declining), and an hour delay would only be about 20cm. (8″).
Ships are often held if there is a potential Jumper on the bridge. This also would result in traffic Being stopped.
Zim Savannah Tied up at Pier 35. Since Zim Ships usually tie up at Pier 41/42 i rarely get pictures. Pier 41 is Occupied By K-Lines Tsing Ma Bridge, and 42 is Blocked by construction.
Barkald moved from pier 26 where she was performing maintaniance to load at National Gypsum at 1700. Prior to docking, she performed a compass swing. Compass swings involve sailing in a 360 Degree circle to determine the influence of metal parts of the ship on the Magnetic compass.
