Many thanks John, as you probably know she did go back 24 hours.
She had been putting out a lot of smoke in the docks before she moved but I guess after the turn and getting underway the residue came out, we were concerned that she had lost power, puffs of black smoke have sometimes indicated that.

Well done catching this one coming out Ken. The cloud of 'clag' rather gives away that these engines hadn't been fired up in a while! Looks like you had a good day all round.

John J.
