2 Brilliant shots and views of this Hapag-Lloyd vessel.
Frederik & Gerda :-D

nice shot, every time i see her in southampton she has more & more red spots on the hull.

Pretty sloppy painting job indeed. On her first trip following her repainting back in July, she had red spots all over both sides of her bow and along the waterline so I've never seen or photographed her in true Hapag hull colors.
This time the name on her bow has survived in its integrity but winter is coming with its share of North Atlantic storms and St.Lawrence River ice so I'm wondering if she'll revert to her full former CP livery in the next few months...

Splashed black or orange color? Joke aside! She used to be orange before Hapag took over. A poor paint quality perhaps?

Great pic Marc, though I must say it looks as though someone splashed a can of paint accross the bow
