The Wright was originally the Mormacsun, and is part of the Seabridge class, two classes newer than the 1624 class which the Southern Cross (T-AK-285) and Northern Light (T-AK-284) are a part of. The Sea-bridges are quite larger and 10 years newer. I remember reading somewhere the Sea-bridges were fitted with 30 ton booms (W/ the exception of the jumbo boom)to ease handling of containers. They also had Ro-Ro capability via a stern ramp. 30,000 shp steam plant!

Hi

Judging by her wide squat funnel and extensive cargo gear the ship at rear looks to be one of Sealift's former Moore-McCormack cargoliners. The name escapes me but I've seen a view before of one of these underway - possibly Southern Cross (T-AK-285) or Northern Light (T-AK-284) but may be others in the class still operating.

Cheers

Brent
