thanks for your comments Holger, the EastGerman coasters were a particular favourite of mine.
It is nice to know some of them are still around.
She looks well in her new role

Interesting shot of a former East German coaster. She was built in 1972 by VEB Vereinigte Elbe-Werften Boizenburg / Rosslau, Werft Boizenburg. Later converted into a tanker.
