Hi Chris,
Beautiful image, we like the contrast water-ship-background. Well done.

No idea but some car carriers called Kotka have called Southampton on the outbound voyage, letīs see soon if that one does call.

Hi Pekka, I was waiting to see the Hoegh Dubai, this was an added bonus. Seen it before but always enjoy a second time around. Not seen the Taipan. Will have to keep a look out for it.

Great catch, Chris! Took her sister TAIPAN today btw. Quite cool as vehicle carriers in my opinion.
