Photo Details
Photographer:Glenn Towler [View profile]Title:Fayrouz IVAdded:Oct 24, 2007
Photo Category: Bulkers built 1981-1990
Now known as: Murmansk
Shot taken on: 23/10/88

Seen here getting underway from Macquarie Wharf no 2 in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia where she discharged Pulp.  It is not known why she still had her crans set like that, sometimes these bulk carriers would also go up to Risdon to load Zinc Blocks but she would not be allowed to go through the Tasman Bridge like that, I can only assume she went to anchor after discharging the pilot to finish her prepartions for heading to sea there.

Shot taken by: Nancy Jacobs and posted with her permission.

Thanks Rogerio

Unfortuanatley I don't have access to shots at this angle any more as the Nancy has moved into a retirment village in Hobart and sold her unit which had this wonderful view.

But I will pass it on you was impressed with the Picture.
