Sad to see the old girl like this. I used to discharge vehicles from the African. She was an unusual design but was always my favourite

Hello Eren - and thank you Fatih for the explanation.

Even if the Google translation is not very good, please include it, as well as the message in your language. If it is not clear, we can usually work it out, or just ask.

Ok Eren and Fatih, it just that when an interesting photo such as yours is with any other language than English is put on the site . it is frustrating when you cannot digest what is written, any useful information is lost to most save for those who comprehend the language. Please take this as a positive criticism.
Keep them coming. great pictures, Turkey has a lot offer in new buildings, demolitions etc.
thanks and regards

Dear Emanuel

I am sorry for that had sent my message in Turkish because Mr.Fatih is also Turkish but had to take into consideration too that this group an international one and globally to write English messages will help much more members to follow each other and understand too. As him said you can join group. Thanks a lot in advance :)

Google translate does not translate well.To summarize what Eren said that he and his friends established a ship breaking group in Facebook which has more than 15000 members from all over the world. He asked me if I want to join the group and share my pictures in the group. This is the group:

Thanks to Google translation, the English version of the Turkish message.
There's more than 15,000 miles of water. There are tales from all over Dunyan. Sharing in the area of the inhabitants (pictures, video, information, news), still photos and rare sharing about the old sailing boats in the group. Ins. We want to see you in the group. Turkey share is small but increases with time Ins. In the meantime, are you sharing in the African Highway - IMO 8100985 group above? Or we would like to share with your permission. Thank you. Have a good day.

Bonjour Fatih,

Nice photo, do you have images of TROENSE MAERSK which is alongside African Highway ?

Take care / Roland

In English please Eren, you may have a lot of useful info in your comment, but what is the use if only Turkish speakers comprehend what you are writing.
Fatih TAKMAKLI on Mar 05, 2017 11:17 (1 year ago)
I hope everyone enjoys the picture!

I thought the same as CorBeek. English please .
CorBeek on Mar 05, 2017 07:37 (1 year ago)
Why do the Turkish members communicate in Turkish and not in English as is clearly mentioned in the website rules?
Eren Topcu on Mar 05, 2017 06:11 (1 year ago)
