Thanks you like them. It was lucky she managed to depart before it got too dark. Can just wish if more these kind of extra loads will come in the future, but certainly it looks rare. Also bet this vessel will never return here.

Thanks Peter for your nice words. I agree Maersk has unique (nice) looking containervessels on their fleet.
