Hi there!
One more remark: the Rigoletto was the very first purpose built car carrier worldwide!

Beautiful shot, Marc.
Very nice to see some "oldtimers" also instead of these modern container-vessels, who seems to change name every week. P.S. Almost forgot to tell you; she is not from the 40's, she is in fact built 1955 in Germany

Rgds. Arne
