Another clear and beautiful day in San Diego allowed for me to see a few ships out in the distance, Looking at an online AIS map I happened to find a ship with an interesting destination. Enlarge the pic to see. – Jim.
Here’s an explanation from Anarchist Zuma: Worlds End is on the Hudson River in front of the US Military Academy West Point. Since the vessel is engaged in military ops it seems that they are delivering something big to West Point. And this from Capt Ken, The Guadaloupe is a Fleet Oiler, it delivers fuel to US Navy ships at sea. It’s also in the Pacific, if fuel was needed at West Point (Worlds End), NY, it would arrive by train or barge not a Pacific Ocean based ship.
Isn’t AIS fun, by the way as of noon EST the Guadaloupe is now heading north, it appears to be doing operations in the San Diego Op Area.
