Haha, you're literally playing tricks on me Jad?!:-)) I fixed the bow se/uction. I'm sure, the workers at the dockyard did the same for real.

Thank you for your hidden hind and your nice comment.
Regards, David

Thank's Clyde, always an aha-moment sailing by an occupied B&V dock with the ships revealing their hidden charms;) Another fact I personally like is, that you can see Hamburg's opera house partly in the background. Now we only need another harbour bridge in front of that:-))

Cheers, David

"Close-up of bow suction ......."

Hi David (echobow),, I can't see the 'bow suction' on the photo !!! ,, nevertheless,, is it maybe for suction of ballast water into the forepeak tank ? xD

Now that's a close up David! With the size of the worker to put size in perspective. Good one!!
