Sea-Watch's newly acquired rescue vessel "Clupea" (will be renamed "Sea Watch 2") at Norderwerft premises for refitting. In her current state however, she looks more like a scrapyard vessel. Spotted from a harbour ferry on 23.02.2016.

Thanks Clyde, it is actually a good location to get in close contact with the vessels with oftenly less than 10 metres of distance between the harbour ferry and the docks!
Let's see how the interesting story of the "Clupea"/"Sea Watch 2" continues.

Kind regards, David

Well done David to capture her in that location from a ferry. Interesting story as well

Hi Max, first of all thank you for your nice comment! Well, I had some trouble with these (in my opinion quite unnecessary) curtains too when I was prevented from shooting "Fairplay-33" in the dock nearby. I guess, it's simply a game of pure chance.

And, as you say, I'm confident that the ship will further enhance the Sea-Watch rescue operations in the Mediterranean.

Cheers, David

Hi Jens, I keep my fingers crossed regarding your wanting. I hope, she'll look a lot better than now the day she'll depart to her mission in the med.

Thanks for your nice comment, always welcome;)
Best regards, David

I'll second that! Eluded me so far though. Was there yesterday- already docked and a curtain across the dock entrance (why do they do that?!).

Considering size, CLUPEA is still a big step forward compared to the small fishing boat which Sea Watch had in the Mediterranean past summer.

Nice catch, David. How small she is compared to some average feeder like Thetis D. Hope we'll have the chance to catch her after her refit.
