The Travels of Tug 44

Cosco Da He - Container Ship

Cosco's container ship Da He comes up the Ambrose Channel heading for Port of New York, with another huge load of products from China. She was built in 1994 by the Hitachi Zosen shipyards, and she is 832 feet long, 105 feet wide. Her 46,750 horsepower moves her along at 24 knots.

The Da He makes her turn towards the Verrazano Narrows Bridge.

As Da He nears the bridge, one wonders if it will fit!

Yep, she fits ... barely. As she passes under the bridge, she lets loose a big cloud of diesel smoke, choking several overhead cars!
