|Downriver off Tilbury 30/8/81, in the days when Carisbrooke Shipping was a fledgling UK shipowner with half-a-dozen or so second-hand coasters of 1950s and 60s vintage. Although they have strong Dutch connections, Carisbrooke are one of the UKs premier shipowners with a large fleet of dry cargo ships between 3,000 and 19,500 dwt and an average age of less than 10 years.
The large ship being overtaken is either the Troll park or Artic Troll outbound from Tilbury
