I arrived at the harbor at the usual time. Since I was in no particular hurry to get to work on the ship, I took a detour to Pier 9 to watch the arrival of Chishio Maru.
Captain Tom Heberle on board:
I went over to the pilot boat to say “hello” to Paul and got invited to ride along. Yeah, cleaning dirt off the deck could wait.
Chishio Maru was one of four Japanese vessels on the shipping schedule today.
Unryu Maru left soon after Chishio Maru arrived:

Mikioi standing by:
Oh well. Time to go and get some work done.
Tug of the morning, Moana Holo:
Mahalo to Captains Tom Heberle, Steve Baker, and Ed Enos. Special thanks to Paul!
