From the sixth floor of the Holiday Inn Express here in Savannah, we just saw the NYK Remus going down the Savannah River heading for the Atlantic Ocean. It was huge. Rated as a container ship, it was built in 2009, Panamanian flagged and 286 meters long and 32 meters wide. It was loaded with railroad containers stacked almost as high as the top of the superstructure.
Looking up information, it arrived here in Savannah yesterday at 1:30 p.m. and left dock today at 9 a.m..
It is owned by the Nippon Yusen Kaisha Corporation, one of the largest shipping companies in the world, based in Tokyo.
Kind of neat to see it and then look it up.
