yeah these handymax and handysize ships often run charter contracts to discharge a certain amount. often times they dont have or dont bring the larger tankers to discharge it all in one trip like the larger panamax, aframax and the seldom suezmax ones you are lucky to catch. as always keep them comin tom

Yeah, I wonder. Don't know though. What does happen in NY, is I see over and over, many of these tankers come in by TWO by company. Its like clockwork.
