STX Harmony

When we flew in past the harbor on the 19th, I could see there was a fully-loaded log ship at the T-pier. The next day was devoted to errands. As I came down the hill, I could see that she was still there, so I went to look. The top of the load was aswarm with longshoremen lashing the logs down, beginning at the bow end. Suddenly two more log trucks came out onto the pier, and their logs were loaded as smaller parcels into apparent spaces along the top of the load further back towards the stern.

She sailed for Lanshan sometime that night, soon disappearing from the ship-trackers; came back into view as she passed through Umiak Pass on April 26, and is invisible to the (free) tracker websites again. Will arrive Lanshan about May 8.

Almost immediately another logship tied up. Pacific Basin Black Forest. She was already full yesterday evening, will surely sail today.
