See my pics at Boatman on the Humber
Once again great pic and hope you like my images.

Hi Derek,
wow - great series. I wish I could see her at my home area too. Thanks for sharing.
DEREK SANDS on Oct 28, 2007 11:37 (10 years ago)
Thanks Ken,
I was very lucky, loaded up the AIS page and there she was. Went to Harwich in plenty of time so as not to miss her.

Great catch Derek, your antenna was working that day, great shot as well.

DEREK SANDS on Oct 28, 2007 11:17 (10 years ago)
Thanks for the info Pekka

Thanks John,
Yes we are certainly lucky to see these.

Hi Allan,

Thanks very much, I will look up the website thanks for the tip off.
Pekka Laakso on Oct 27, 2007 22:33 (10 years ago)
Hi John, and Derek too. I think they need to call there because they´re too big to perform the crew changes and bunkering at the offshore harbour Great Yarmouth.
John Jones on Oct 27, 2007 22:20 (10 years ago)
You certainly do get some interesting visitors in your neck of the woods Derek. Great shots too.

Great photos Derek, of a most unusual ship. Looking at the FINSTASHIP website, they list her as an "Ice Breaker & Multipupose Support vessel"

Best regards

Thanks Marie-Anne,

They are nice I think, pity you don't see them.
They are quite rare here to, only calling for crew change and supplies.No ice to break here!

Fantastic serie Derek.
