I have corrected the date to December 1996, that was a typo by me. At that time I was travelling on business virtually every week, and tried to call in at a nearby port if possible. Around that time I would have visited Amsterdam, Hamburg, Lubeck / Travemunde, Stockholm and Helsinki, so it's probably one of those.

This picture definitely did not originate in Lübeck, I'm guessing Helsinki Sompasaari

Appears to have a Dutch flag at mast head - courtesy flag? I assume she was Finnish registry?
Joerg Seyler on Jan 02, 2018 19:42 (4 months ago)
the capture date is wrong. In December 1999 her name was FINNOAK.
Best regards

No, I'm not 100% sure. I've scanned all my old slides and photographs, and posted the one's that were definitely identified. I'm now onto those where the details are not quite so precise, so although I have Lubeck in my records, it may not be correct, as I toured several ports on that trip.

Are you sure picture has been taken at Lübeck? Cranes in the background don't seem to match with what he have / had here...
