I like to watch MarineTraffic.com and stay up on the shipping news, see what everyone else is up to, where everyone is headed. It’s kinda nice to see names you know and look at what ports they coming from and going to. There are a few ships in particular that I like to follow either because I know the ship, I know someone on the ship, or I just find that ship particularly interesting. One of the ships I find interesting and like to check in on is Crowley’s Legacy ATB. Her sister, the Legend, always seems to be going back and forth across the gulf but the Legacy does not seem to have moved from Sabine Pass, Texas for several months, according to “Marine Traffic” anyway. Does anyone know the reason for this? Is the Legacy laid up there or is it a glitch with her AIS or maybe a glitch with “Marine Traffic”?
If she is laid up, I would be very curious to know the reason. It seems hard to believe that a company like Crowley would spend tens of millions on a boat like that and then not use it. I was just hoping someone with inside knowledge could provide some insight.
