Hi Ken,

There must be a large blind spot looking forward!
These China Shipping vessels don't seem to carry many reefers although
she has 700 reefer points. The Maersk vessels have normally plenty of reefers on board. Reefer vessels are reasonably common in Rotterdam and Antwerp
but most carry containers on deck these days to.

best regards

Nice one Derek, not much of a view from the bridge !! and no reefer boxes, the box boats on the Thames seem to carry quite a few these days, can't remember the last time I saw a full blown reefer.

Thanks Dave,

I presume that they are mostly loaded looking at her draft.

best regards

Very nice! That is quite a healthy load of boxes assuming they are all filled.
