WEST SEATTLE SCENE: Big ship at Terminal 5

Thanks to Amy Pieper for sending the photo! As noted in our morning traffic (etc.) watch, what might be the biggest ship yet to call at West Seattle’s Terminal 5, a month after its opening, is there today. The MSC Margrit‘s capacity is 13,600 TEUs – more than double the capacity of the first ship to call at T-5 last month. Though it’s only about a decade old, the Northwest Seaport Alliance says MSC Margrit is not shore-power capable, so T-5 has yet to see a ship plug in.

    Did not realize LEGO had a navy.

    At least here on the “wrong side” of West Seattle, we’re getting pretty used to hearing the foghorns of associated traffic at all hours (including now as I write). Most of the time we get blessed silence, but eventually someone will “need” to sound their horn every couple of minutes over and over and over.

Sorry, comment time is over.
