great shot and a very nice ship, lot of Derrick there, many works :-)
kind regards peter
Two superb shots of a wonderful ship.
I was fortunate enough to see one of this class
when it called at Felixstowe in 1983.
Named Builder by then, but my camera was not up to much then so the slide is not to good. I have posted a scan of it on the site
