Hi Brent,
Thanks for your kind remark and info. on the name, regarding the bow out of the water, if you check my postings of the D ships, with the exception of the Denton they all seem to be low at the stern and high at the bow, maybe they don't have heavy loads in and out of Tilbury !!
Regards Ken

Hi Ken

Agree a very nice shot. Also note that despite a good sprinkling of containerrs on board her bow is quite high out of the water.

You will note 2 similar names, she was given Dacartur first but they found this was an incorrect spelling and then replaced that with her current name. A ggogle search shows Decartur is a couple of city names in USA, we couldn't get a result of Dacartur so glad that now cleared up, although understand not cheap to rename ships.
