Thanks. You are right, it's hard to believe that a few days after the photo has been taken, she will start to be broken up. The dark blue line along the hull seems to be fresh and gives the impression that the ship is still in very good condition.

Great shot, well done.

Nice shot. Although the ship looks in good condition, there's something about the shot which suggests that it's the end of the line for the old girl.
