Good shot John and thanks for sharing it with us. She and her sisters (I think there were two others) were amongst my favourite ships . Always smart and tidy looking , and done a very important job , reliably too. Remember her and 2JAMES ROWAN" being laid-up in the Tyne awaiting disposal. Unique ships, especially their propulsion. Keep 'em coming. Always appreciated.
