Thanks for the info Derek, always much appreciated.

Jadran, yes isn't it? I think lane separation must have taken a lot of the excitement out of being at sea, along with reducing collisions and good photo opportunities.

Best Regards,
Dave

Great action shot David.
The crossing of these two ships on the pic ( including also your tanker as the third ) looks comparably like a "very-very close" airplanes' crossing in the air.
