Friday night light

ATBs awaiting new cargos accumulated at the North River anchorages Friday heading into a hot weekend. Patrice McAllister arrived Thursday night and anchored off 96th Street. She was joined by Adeline Marie, anchoring about a mile south Friday morning and then by Dean Reinauer dropping its hook off the 125th Street pier in the afternoon. An interesting small chemical tanker came through in the afternoon, with the Scot (which stands for Safe Chemical Oil Tanker according to the company’s web site) Hamburg coming up from the Caribbean and heading for Albany with unknown cargo.
