Hi Marie-Anne,
the UNION DIAMOND was the reason for me for spotting on August the 20th. She´s a beauty and a nice change on Kiel-Canal. I hope I can see more of this beauties at my home area.

Great photo's Michael.
With the two new tugs in Antwerp the Union Diamond and Union Sapphire are going to the sea to help out in many different places!
