Dutch Twins in Port today.

 Saturday brought the arrival of the General Cargo ship Singelgracht. She waited for Algoma Dartmouth to to return from Port Hawksbury for bunkers, topped up, and has remained at anchor since.

Last night brought the arrival of the Slotergracht to Pier 27. She is loaded with containers and a Fishing vessel on deck. (and presumably something else in her holds.

Both Vessels are part of Spliethoff’s Fleet. The S Class Features three 120ton cranes – two (Aft and Midship) to the Port Side and the Forward one to Starboard. and 5 Side loading Elevators,  Which stick up on the port side, and allow the holds to be loaded without opening the hatch covers – which is useful for loading products like paper that must remain dry.
