From the Tower…Mostly Matson

Matsonia stuck at Pier 10 (better that than out at sea)…poor girl. I went to have a look at her.

It’s rare to see a Matson stack towering over Pier 10 these days.

There was quite a bit of traffic while I was up on Aloha Tower.

    Why is it so difficult to find information about ships, gah?! Cargo vessels make modern life possible but they’re almost… invisible. MATSONIA has a very interesting (to me) design – it looks like she carries vehicles aft and containers forward. It’d be very interesting to know how she’s kept in trim. Ah, well.

    Wonderful photographs!
