Hi Cornelia,

She had loaded empty boxes for Zeebrugge, by keeping the aft end of the water slighty hevier than the forward they help to improve fuel efficiancy as this keeps the prop low in the water.
:-D

interesting photo, the ship seems not to be loaded heavily, looks a bit .. unbalanced probably ?
